Prince Edward Island PNP Express Entry
The Express Entry category under the PEI PNP is aligned to the federal Express Entry system. The Express Entry system manages applications for Canada immigration under the three federal economic immigration programs of the country, which are Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class. Each Express Entry candidate is assigned a Comprehensive Ranking System(CRS) score based on various eligibility factors such as age, education, work experience, language ability etc. Those who receive provincial nomination from Prince Edward Island are awarded an additional 600 CRS score points that guarantee them an invitation to apply for permanent residence in Canada in the subsequent Express Entry draw.
