With the latest draw of 143, the total number of invitations issued this year by Prince Edward Island rises to 1,337.

on September 16, The Province of Prince Edward Island held its 8th scheduled monthly draw of a total of 143 invitations through its Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).

Out of 143 Invites, 129 went to Express Entry & Labour Impact candidates and 9 invitations went to Business Impact candidates who had at least 72 points in the province’s immigration system. With this, the total number of invitations issued so far this year went to 1,337.

PNPs allow Canada’s provinces and territories to select immigration candidates who meet their labour market needs.

The PEI PNP’s Express Entry Category is an enhanced PNP, which means it is linked with the federal government’s Express Entry system. In order to be considered for this stream, candidates need to have a profile in the system.

The Labour Impact Category is for foreign nationals who have a valid job offer in P.E.I., and have support from their employer. It is divided into three streams: Skilled Worker, Critical Worker, and International Graduate. Candidates in this category must also submit an Expression of Interest in order to be considered for a provincial nomination through the Labour Impact Category.

Business Impact Category candidates need to meet the minimum provincial score requirement in order to proceed with their applications. The score is different in every draw. The invitations that P.E.I. sent in today’s draw were issued under the Work Permit Stream, which is for foreign entrepreneurs who want to own and operate a business on the island.
