CIC news – PEI invites more Express Entry candidates in the second round of invitations this year

The Canadian province of Prince Edward Island (PEI) has issued invitations to apply to a total of 72 candidates under the Labour Impact and Express Entry Categories of the PEI Provincial Nominee Program.


An additional 7 candidates with scores between 135 and 142 were invited to apply under the Business Impact Category of the PEI Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP).


PEI’s Express Entry stream awards successful candidates with ‘enhanced’ provincial nominations. This means candidates in the Federal Express Entry pool who obtain a provincial nomination from PEI will be awarded 600 additional Comprehensive Ranking System points, and an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence at a later federal Express Entry invitation round.


PEI’s Office of Immigration revealed a new Expression of Interest system this year for foreign nationals interested in applying to any Canadian immigration category managed under the PEI PNP.


How does the new Expression of Interest work?


All Canadian immigration applications submitted to the PEI PNP undergo a three-step process:


Step 1: Create an account and submit a profile in the Expression of Interest system


Step 2: The highest-ranked eligible candidates with a connection to PEI are invited to submit an application to the PEI PNP.


Step 3: After a review of the paper application submitted to PEI’s Office of Immigration, successful candidates submit a separate application for permanent residence to the Government of Canada.


For the PEI PNP Express Entry category, candidates receive a score out of 100 based on the following factors: age, language proficiency, education, work experience, employment, and adaptability.


PEI’s Express Entry Category offers two pathways to permanent residence status, one of which considers candidates without a job offer in PEI.


For this draw, PEI’s Office of Immigration stated in their update that candidates who received an invitation to apply to the province were required to have a job offer with a PEI business.


It is important to note that submitting an Expression of Interest (EOI) is not an application, but an indication to the province that a candidate is interested in being considered for the immigration category managed by the PEI PNP.


Currently, the Government of PEI does not charge any fees for the submission of an EOI.


In it their update, PEI also released a list outlining all invited candidates’ countries of origin, which reflects PEI’s commitment to increase diversity in the province.
