PNP Express Entry Category in PEI

The PEI PNP's Express Entry Category is a superior PNP, meaning it is linked to the federal government's Express Entry system. To be considered for this stream, immigrants must have a profile in the framework.

CRS points are awarded to eligible candidates based on their age, work experience, educational qualifications, and English or French language proficiency.

Express Entry is a service that monitors immigration applications to Canada. It processes applications for economic class migration programs such as the Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class.

Candidates who receive a provincial nomination gain 600 points on the CRS and are almost guaranteed an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence in Canada in a later Express Entry draw.

To be considered for a provincial nomination in PEI, Express Entry applicants must first create an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile with the PEI PNP.


EOI profiles are given scores based on the province's unique scoring grid. The top scorers are then invited to participate in monthly draws.

Competitors are given a CRS score based on their age, professional experience, educational qualifications, and ability to communicate in English or French.

Impact on the Workforce

The Labour Impact Category is open to non-native Canadians with a valid work visa in Prince Edward Island and employer assistance. There are three options: skilled worker, critical worker, and international graduate. It is critical to submitting an Expression of Interest in the Labour Impact Category in order to be considered for nomination to the PEI Legislature.

Category for Business Impact

To proceed with their applications, candidates in the Business Impact Category must achieve the provincial minimum score. Each draw has a unique score. For today's draw, the PEI PNP sent out invites under the Work Permit Stream, which is for international entrepreneurs who want to own and run a firm on the island.
