Prince Edward Island Issued 171 Invitations To Immigration Candidates In Its Latest Draw
Canada’s smallest province, Prince Edward Island just held one of its largest draws of the year that issued 171 invitations to immigration candidates in its Express Entry, Labour Impact and Business Impact categories.
This is the province’s second-largest draw this year after its February 21 draw, which rendered a total of 199 invitations. Through the Express Entry and Labour Impact categories on November 21 may now apply for a nomination for Canadian permanent residence from the PEI Provincial Nominee Program invited 157 candidates.
Express Entry candidates who receive a provincial nomination are awarded an additional 600 points toward their CRS score that effectively guarantee an invitation to apply for Canadian PR from the Government of Canada in a subsequent Express Entry draw.
In order to be invited for a PEI provincial nomination, Express Entry candidates must first submit an Expression of Interest EOI to the PEI PNP. EOI profiles are awarded a score and the highest-ranked candidates are invited to apply through monthly draws. The PEI PNP did not provide a breakdown of how many Express Entry candidates were invited or the minimum EOI score is required.
The Labour Impact Category is for foreign nationals with a valid job offer in PEI.
It is divided into three streams:
- Skilled Worker
- Critical Worker
- International Graduate
The PEI PNP has now issued 1,336 invitations to apply through the Express Entry and Labour Impact categories in 2019. So far this year, a total of 182 invitations have now been issued to foreign entrepreneurs through this Work Permit Stream.
