PEI PNP Rounds of Invitations 2019

PEI Office of Immigration invites the PEI PNP potential applicants with the highest score in the Expression of Interest (EOI) system to apply for PEI PNP.

There are about 300 quotas for the PEI PNP Business Impact Category and 600 quotas for the PEI PNP Labour Impact Category and Express Entry Invitations in 2019.  The total number of invitations issued within each category will be based on various program demands and economic factors, including PEI’s annual provincial nomination immigration levels as determined by the federal government.

Prince Edward Island invited 104 immigration candidates in its Express Entry, Labour Impact and Business Impact categories to apply to the province’s nominee program in a draw held May 16.

Of the 104 invitations issued, a total of 90 went to candidates who have registered an Expression of Interest with the PEI PNP in its Express Entry Category or the various streams of its Labour Impact Category.

Express Entry candidates must register a separate Expression of Interest with the PEI PNP in order to be considered for a nomination from the province.

Candidates are issued a score out of 100 based on factors such as education, skilled work experience and proficiency in English or French, among other factors.

A job offer in PEI is not required, but the PEI PNP says preference is given to candidates who are living and working in the province.

Qualified candidates with the highest scores are invited to apply for a provincial nomination through regular draws from the PEI PNP’s EOI pool.
