Prince Edward Island PNP issued 155 ITAs to immigration candidates in recent draw
Prince Edward Island (PEI) invited 155 immigration candidates through its Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) in their scheduled draw on May 20.
Candidates who received invitations were from the Express Entry, Labour Impact, and Business Impact streams can now apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence.
Majority of the invitations, 138, were issued to Express Entry and Labour Impact candidates. The remaining 17 invitations were given to Business Impact candidates who had a minimum point threshold of 80.
All Business Impact candidates were issued invitations under the Work Permit Stream. This stream is for foreign entrepreneurs who want to own and operate a business in PEI.
The Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP) is a federally approved program to select immigration candidates who meet their labour market needs. The PEI PNP is an enhanced PNP, meaning it is linked to the federal government’s Express Entry system.
To be considered for a provincial nomination from PEI, Express Entry candidates need to create an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile with the PEI PNP. EOI profiles are given points based on the province’s unique points grid. Then, the highest scoring candidates are invited to apply through monthly draws.
The Labour Impact Category is for foreign nationals who have a valid job offer in PEI and have support from their employer. There are three streams within this category: Skilled Worker, Critical Worker, and International Graduate. Labour Market candidates must submit an EOI to be considered for a nomination.
The Business Impact Category requires candidates to meet the minimum provincial score requirement in order to proceed with their applications. The score varies per draw.
