PEI PNP draw invites 143 immigration candidates, offers nomination

On September 16, 2021, Prince Edward Island conducted another monthly PEI PNP draw inviting 143 immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination.

Here’s how the invitations were distributed among different categories of candidates:

  • Express Entry & Labor Impact – 129 invitations
  • Business Impact – 14 invitations (Minimum points required was 72)

The total number of invitations issued so far in 2021 has come to 1,337. The upcoming PEI PNP draw will happen on October 21, 2021.

About Express Entry category

Express Entry is a points-based application management system used by the federal government to manage applications for immigration. These applications are filed for 3 federal high-skilled immigration programs namely CEC, FSTP, and FSWP.

The applicants to Express Entry have their profiles added to a candidate pool that’s accessible to both federal and provincial governments. Every candidate profile is ranked by CRS with scores assigned. Factors like age, education, work experience, and skills in Canada’s official language are considered to decide the scores.

When provincial governments choose and nominate Express Entry candidates through PNP draws, they automatically add 600 extra points to their original CRS scores. This way, the candidates get a higher score that will increase their chances to get an ITA to the near surety in a forthcoming federal immigration draw.

For a provincial nomination, these candidates need to create an EOI profile with the provincial PNP involved. The EOI profiles are given scores on the province’s unique points grid.

The highest-scoring Express Entry candidates are invited by IRCC to apply for Canada PR when they take part in regular invitation rounds. Those who are invited can officially apply for Canada immigration.

About Labor Impact category

Candidates under this category are foreign nationals with a valid job offer in PEI as well as their PEI employer’s support. This category is further divided into International Graduate, Critical Worker, and Skilled Worker.

The candidates under this category have to submit an EOI so that they are considered fit for a provincial nomination.

About Business Impact category

There’s a minimal provincial score that candidates under this category need to meet so that they can apply for a nomination. Every draw sets this score differently.

In the September 16 draw, PEI sent invitations under the Work Permit Stream. This stream is for foreign entrepreneurs who desire to own and operate a business in PEI.
