Prince Edward Island issued 305 invitations to Express Entry, Labour Impact, and Business Impact immigration candidates.
Prince Edward Island has released details of 2 Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draws in August. One of these was the largest draw the program has ever seen.
After issuing just eight invitations to Express Entry and Labour Impact applicants on August 11, the Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP) distributed 305 invitations to candidates in all streams on August 20.
Of the 305 invitations issued, 28 went to Business Impact candidates. The staying 227 invitations moved to Express Entry and Labour Impact candidates, though the PEI PNP does not offer a breakdown of the number of invitations were issued in all these classes.
The PEI PNP’s Express Entry Category is aligned with the Canadian government’s Express Entry system.
Express Entry oversees the applications for three economic-class immigration categories: Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class.
Eligible candidates are provided a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score because of their age, work experience, education, and language proficiency in English and French.
Labour Impact Category
The Labour effect Category is for foreign nationals who have a valid job offer in PEI, and also have support from their employer. It’s separated into three streams: Skilled Worker, Critical Employee , and International Graduate.
Nominees in this category must also submit an EOI profile so as to be considered for a provincial nomination throughout the Labour Impact Category.
Business Effect Category
The 28 candidates who were invited through the Business Impact Category on August 20 had a minimum EOI score of 112. These invitations were issued under the Work Permit Stream, which will be for overseas entrepreneurs who would like to own and operate a business in PEI.
