The Government of Prince Edward Island sent out 143 invitations to Expression of Interest candidates in the Express Entry, Labour Impact, and Business Impact categories of its Provincial Nominee Program.
The 143 invitations were broken down as follows:
133 Express Entry and Labour Impact
10 Business Impact
The PEI PNP’s Express Entry Category is linked to the federal Express Entry system and allows the province to nominate Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class and Canadian Experience Class candidates for permanent residence.
Candidates who obtain a nomination from the province are awarded 600 additional points towards their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score and are effectively guaranteed an Invitation To Apply (ITA) in a subsequent draw from the Express Entry pool.
