PEI holds largest PNP draw ever

Prince Edward Island has released details of two Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draws in August. One of them was the biggest draw the program has ever seen.

After issuing just eight invitations to Express Entry and Labour Impact candidates on August 11, the Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP) distributed 305 invitations to candidates in all streams on August 20.

Of the 305 invitations issued, 28 went to Business Impact candidates. The remaining 277 invitations went to Express Entry and Labour Impact candidates, though the PEI PNP does not provide a breakdown of how many invitations were issued in each of these categories.

The PEI PNP specified that the people who were invited in August had stated that they are currently living and working in the province. Candidates were invited if they had filed Expression of Interest (EOI) profiles before June 2020.
