The Express Entry category of Prince Edward Island targets those who are already in the federal Express Entry pool.

Prince Edward Island Labour Impact category
This category has two streams under it, which are the Skilled Worker Stream and Critical Worker stream. To be eligible under the Skilled Worker Stream, the candidates must have a job offer from a PEI employer. At the same time, Critical Worker Stream aims to resolve the labour shortages in the province. Those who are already in PEI with employment in specific critical-demand occupations such as truck drivers, housekeeping attendants, labourers and customer service representatives may apply under this stream.
