Prince Edward Island Held Two PNP Draws In This July
PEI invited 194 immigration candidates to take one step closer to permanent residence in different streams- Express Entry, Labour Impact, and Business Impact immigration candidates this month.
The Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP) held two invitation rounds so far in July - July 10 and July 16.
Normally the PEI PNP follows a predetermined schedule for holding invitation rounds. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the province’s plans have been thrown a wrench. PEI has held two draws on schedule since March, in June and July whereas the next draw is scheduled for August 20.
The PEI PNP’s Express Entry Category is aligned with the Canadian government’s Express Entry system. Express Entry candidates need to create an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile with the PEI PNP in order to be considered for a provincial nomination from PEI. The PEI PNP did not provide a breakdown of how many Express Entry and Labour Impact candidates were invited, nor the minimum EOI score required for each category.
Labour Impact category is for foreign nationals who have a valid job offer in PEI, and have support from their employer. It is divided into three streams: Skilled Worker, Critical Worker, and International Graduate.
The PEI PNP issued invitations to 29 candidates with an EOI profile in the Business Impact: Work Permit Stream on July 16 which is for entrepreneurs who wish to own and operate a business in PEI.
