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.

Express Entry 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.

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 ClassFederal Skilled Trades Class and Canadian Experience Class candidates for permanent residence.

PEI's Labour Impact category is 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, Critical Worker and International Graduate. The Labour Impact program is not tied to Express Entry.

The Province also issued 10 invitations to Business Impact candidates with a minimum score of 112 on the program's points system, under the Work Permit Stream.

Everyone who wants to be considered for a provincial nomination through the Express Entry, Labour Impact and Business Impact categories must first submit an Expressions of Interest (EOI). Eligible candidates in each category are entered into a pool and assigned a score based on the answers provided in their EOI.

An EOI is not an application but rather a way of notifying the PEI PNP that you would like to be considered for a provincial nomination.

The highest-ranked candidates are then invited to apply through monthly draws from each pool.

The August 15 Express Entry draw saw 15 more invitations than the previous draw on July 18, when 118 invitations were sent out.

The July 18 draw sent out a total of 17 invitations with a minimum score of 112, which has remained consistent since the previous draw on June 20.
