PEI taps Express Entry pool in latest Expression of Interest draw

Candidates in Labour Impact and Business Impact categories also issued invitations


The Atlantic province of Prince Edward Island has issued 169 invitations in a new draw announced Friday, including 75 to Express Entry candidates.


The draw took place on April 19 and is the third through Prince Edward Island’s Expression of Interest system, which was introduced in February.


PEI’s Office of Immigration said the Express Entry candidates invited are either currently working in the province or had graduated from one of its post-secondary institutions. Those invited had Expression of Interest scores that ranged from 37 to 87 points.


Express Entry candidates who wish to be considered under the PEI Express Entry Category must create a profile in the province’s Expression of Interest system. Profiles are reviewed and assigned points based on six selection factors: age, language, education, work experience, employment, and adaptability up to a maximum of 100 points.


Express Entry candidates who have been invited through the PEI Express Entry Stream have 90 days from the invitation date to submit a complete application to the province’s Office of Immigration.  Applicants who are nominated by PEI receive an additional 600 Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points, leaving them well position to receive an Invitation to Apply for Canadian permanent residence.


Labour Impact and Business Impact invitations also issued


The April 19 draw also issued invitations to 77 candidates in PEI’s Labour Impact Category and 17 Business Impact Category applicants.


Candidates invited through the Labour Impact Category had scores that ranged from 22 to 85, while the scores for Business Impact Category candidates ranged from 135 to 155.


PEI’s Labour Impact Category is for individuals who possess skills and experience that are needed in PEI’s labour market. The category is divided into three streams: Skilled Workers, Critical Workers and International Graduates.


The Business Impact Category is also divided into three streams: 100% Ownership, Partial Ownership and Work Permit.


PEI’s Office of Immigration did not provide a breakdown of how many candidates were invited through each stream in Labour Impact and Business Impact streams.
