Prince Edward Island issues 113 Canada immigration invitations

Canada Global (Web News) In a recent provincial draw, Prince Edward Island invited 113 potential candidates for skilled worker immigration to Canada to submit applications.

Invitations were sent out as part of the 30 March draw for the Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP) stream and the Labour Impact stream of Express Entry.

A calendar of the times for each month’s provincial drawings is released by Prince Edward Island. It has just lately started holding draws outside of that schedule, though.

Since the beginning of 2018, PEI has conducted monthly drawings using its Expression of Interest mechanism, with minor interruptions brought on by the coronavirus outbreak.

PEI sent out 1,853 invitations altogether in 2022 as opposed to 1,933 in 2021.

1,729 of the 2022 invitations were given to Express Entry and Labour Impact candidates, and 124 were given to Business Impact candidates.

Expedited Entry Stream for Prince Edward Island

In order to determine candidates for a provincial nomination in PEI’s Express Entry category, candidates must already be in the federal Express Entry Pool.

Such a nomination increases a candidate’s Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score by 600 points and essentially ensures that they will receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for immigration to Canada.

Two routes to Canadian permanent residency are available under the PEI Express Entry Category, one for those with a work offer and one for those without.
