The immigration candidates were invited to the latest draw after they submitted an Expression of Interest to Prince Edward Island. The province issued invitations and distributed them amongst immigration candidates during a draw that was held on 16th January. It marked the province’s first draw of the year.

The PEI Provincial Nominee Program or the PEI PNP distributed a sum total of 123 invitations amongst candidates belonging to the Express Entry, Business Impact, and Labour Impact categories. The 110 candidates who were invited through the Express Entry and Labour Impact categories are now able to apply for provincial nomination that would help on their path to gaining Canadian permanent residence. The PEI’s Express Entry Category is associated with the federal Express Entry system.

The Express Entry, the backbone of the Canadian immigration system, is in charge of the pool of candidates belonging to Canada’s primary economic immigration categories. It is linked to the Federal Skilled Trades Class, Federal Skilled Worker Class, and the Canadian Experience Class. The candidates who want a provincial nomination are given an extra 600 points, which contribute to their federal ranking score.

This can effectively guarantee an invitation allowing them to apply for permanent residence in Canada. The Express Entry candidates have to submit a separate Expression of Interest (EOI) to the PEI Provincial Nominee Program. EOI profiles are given a score on the basis of PEI’s unique points grid. The highest-ranked candidates are then given invitations for monthly draws.

Labour Impact Category candidates were also given invitations to the draw held on 16th January. Submitting an EOI profile is important if the candidates want to be considered for a provincial nomination under the Labour Impact Category.
