The Prince Edward Island Nomination Program is a part of the Provincial Nominee Program that allows applicants to come and settle on a permanent basis.
The PEI PNP has an Express Entry category that is aligned with the Federal Express Entry System that manages the applicants under three main economic immigration categories- the Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trade Program, and Canadian Experience Class.
Candidates under Express Entry who want to apply for provincial nomination through PEI must first complete a separate Expression of Interest (EOI) profile with the PEI PNP.
The profiles are ranked on the basis of factors such as education, work experience, proficiency in English or French and other factors are invited to apply for a provincial nomination through monthly draws.
The successful applicants who obtain a provincial nomination are awarded an additional 600 points towards their overall ranking score.
The other PEI PNP stream- Labour Impact Category is not aligned with the Express Entry system and is divided into three EOI-based streams namely Skilled Workers (in PEI and outside Canada), International Graduates and critical workers.
The applicants applying in this stream must be working in Prince Edward Island or have an eligible full-time, long-term job offer from an employer in the province among other criteria.
