The first provincial draw by Canada’s Prince Edward Island [PEI] is expected to be held on January 21, 2021.
Recently, PEI has come out with its anticipated schedule for Invitations to Apply [ITAs] to be sent out by the Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program [PEI PNP] in 2021.
Each month, the Office of Immigration reviews the Expression of Interest system and sends out invitations to individuals for applying to the PEI PNP.
|A foreign national interested in applying for Canadian permanent residence via the PEI PNP – through either the Express Entry, Labour Impact, or Business Impact Category – will be required to first create an account as well as profile through the online Expression of Interest system of the PEI PNP.
Basic 3–step process
STEP 1: Creation of an account and submission of profile to the EOI system.
STEP 2: Highest-scoring candidates will be invited to submit an application to the PEI PNP.
STEP 3: Following a review of the paper-based application submitted, PEI PNP will then nominate successful candidates to apply to the federal government of Canada for their permanent residence.
Generally, PEI PNP draws are held once in a month.
