|Stream||Total Invitations issued||Minimum Score Requirement|
|Express Entry & Labour Impact||172||No Info. provided|
|Business Impact – Work Permit||16||67|
PEI PNP’s Express Entry Category is for candidates with a profile in the federal Express Entry system. Express Entry candidates, who would like to be considered for a provincial nomination from the province, need to create a separate Expression of Interest (EOI) profile with the PEI PNP.
Express Entry candidates with a provincial nomination get an additional 600 point toward their overall Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score, which effectively guarantees them an Invitation to Apply (ITA) in a subsequent Express Entry draw.
PEI PNP’s Labour Impact Category is not aligned with the Express Entry system and is designed for foreign nationals with a valid job offer in the province and support from a PEI employer.
Candidates in this category may fall under three possible streams: Skilled Worker (in PEI and outside Canada), Critical Worker and International Graduate.
PEI PNP’s Business Impact: Work Permit Stream is for individuals interested in owning and operating a business on the island. This stream also operates on a points-based EOI system.
PEI PNP conducts one immigration invitation round every month. The total number of invitations issued so far this year by PEI is 1,729.
The next PEI PNP draw is scheduled for December 16, 2021.
