The province of Prince Edward Island held its first draw of 2019 on January 17; total 91 invitations were given to immigration candidates through its express entry, labour impact and business impact categories. A total of 91 invitations were issued including 61 through the PEI PNP’s Express Entry and Labour Impact Categories. The remaining 30 invitations issued went to candidates in Prince Edward Island’s work permit business stream.
This stream is for eligible foreign entrepreneurs with business ownership or eligible management experience who would like to invest in and run a business in PEI. The lowest ranked candidate in the January 17 draw had a score of 120.
The PEI’s Express Entry stream is connected to the Government of Canada’s Express Entry System which manages the pool of candidates for three of Canada’s Federal economic immigration programs. Candidates with a profile in the Express Entry pool who are interested in working and living in PEI can register a separate Expression of Interest with Prince Edward Island PNP. The highest ranking EOI applicant is invited to apply for provincial nomination through monthly draws from the pool.
The provincial nomination from Ontario enables an applicant to receive 600 points toward their Express Entry ranking score effectively guaranteeing an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence.
