Prince Edward Island (PEI) had conducted 2 rounds of draws under the PNP (Provincial Nominee Program) category in August 2020. One of the draws was the biggest one in the history of the program.
In one of the draws, PEI issued 8 invitations that went to Labor Impact and Express Entry candidates. That draw was conducted on August 11, 2020. The other draw was conducted on August 20, 2020. In that draw, PEI PNP issued 305 invites to candidates belonging to all streams.
277 invites issued in the August 20 draw went to Labour Impact and Express Entry candidates. The remaining 28 invites were sent to Business Impact candidates.
The candidates invited by PEI PNP were confirmed to be residing and working in Canada currently. The candidates who had filed EOI (Expression of Interest) profiles before June 2020 were invited in August draws.
The PEI PNP is totally aligned with the federal Express Entry system. It’s the Express Entry system that works as an efficient mechanism to manage applications from 3 major economic classes under Canada immigration. These are:
For every profile in the Express Entry pool, scores for ranking are given under CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System). The scores are given considering factors like age, education, work experience, and language skills in English and French.
Candidates who get a nomination from a province like PEI will get additional 600 points on their CRS scores. That will make it even more possible to receive ITA (Invitation to Apply) for permanent residence in a future federal Express Entry draw.
If you want to be considered for PEI’s nomination, you will need to create an EOI profile with PEI PNP. As every profile is given points, the higher the score you get, the earlier you will get nominated.
