Prince Edward Island conducted its first draw for the new year 2020 on 16th January. The PEI Provincial Nominee Program invited 123 candidates in the Labour Impact, Business Impact and Express Entry categories.
110 candidates were invited under the Labour Impact and Express Entry sub-categories. These candidates can now apply for a provincial nomination to the PEI PNP.
The PEI Express Entry category is aligned with IRCC’s Express Entry Program. Candidates who get a provincial nomination add 600 more points to their federal CRS score.
To be considered for an invitation from Prince Edward Island, you need to submit a separate Expression of Interest to the PEI PNP. Eligible EOIs are scored using the PEI points grid. Candidates with the highest scores are then invited in regular draws conducted by the PEI PNP.
The PEI PNP did not reveal exactly how many Express Entry candidates were invited in the 16th January draw. It also did not reveal how many Labour Impact candidates the draw invited.
