PEI Invites 156
April 15, 2021
A total of 156 invitations were issued through the Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP).
PEI invites 156 immigration candidates in new Draw.
Express Entry, Labour Impact, and Business Impact candidates were invited to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence.
Immigration to P.E.I., like elsewhere in the country, has declined over the past year, largely due to travel restrictions. However, the federal government plans to make up the shortfall and achieve an ambitious immigration target in 2021. Under the PNPs Canada’s target is to admit 80,800 new immigrants this year.
Eligible candidates are given a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score for their age, work experience, education, and language proficiency in English or French.
Express Entry candidates who receive a provincial nomination are given an additional 600 points toward their CRS score and are effectively guaranteed an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence in a subsequent Express Entry draw.
In order to be considered for a provincial nomination from P.E.I., Express Entry candidates need to create an EOI profile with the PEI PNP.
EOI profiles are given points based on the province’s unique points grid. The highest-scoring candidates are then invited to apply through monthly draws.
