PEI PNP Express Entry

The candidates who have created a profile with the Express Entry system of the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada can apply for provincial nomination from Prince Edward Island through the Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP) Express Entry category.

The Express Entry category operates through an Expression of Interest(EoI) system and the Express Entry candidates who wish to be considered for provincial nomination from PEI PNP under the category must first create an Expression of Interest profile. Each EoI profile is ranked on the basis of a number of human capital and adaptability factors and the highest-ranking candidates are invited by the PEI PNP to apply for provincial nomination.

In order to be eligible under the PEI PNP Express Entry category, the candidate must have an active Express Entry profile. They must also have proved their eligibility under one of the federal economic immigration programs of Canada which are:

  • Federal Skilled Worker Program
  • Federal Skilled Trades Program
  • Canadian Experience

PEI PNP Express Entry category has two pathways—one for those who have a job offer and the other, for those who do not have one. However, the category gives priority to those candidates who live and work in PEI.

The EoI profile created by the candidate will remain valid for six months. PEI PNP conducts periodic draws to invite candidates with the highest scores to apply for provincial nomination. The invited candidates can submit the complete application with all the supporting documents within 60 days. After obtaining the provincial nomination, the candidates can apply for provincial nomination in Canada.
