The province of Quebec and the territory of Nunavut are not part of the Canadian PNP. Quebec has its own immigration programs. Nunavut has no immigration program.
On June 17, 2021, Prince Edward Island PNP, also referred to as PEI PNP, invited another 113 immigration candidates to apply for a PEI PNP nomination for Canada PR.

[minimum score required – 60]
In the latest provincial draw by PEI, the minimum points required to be eligible for qualifying under the PEI PNP’s Express Entry or Labour Impact categories was not specified, as per the norm.
The minimum score requirement for the invitations issued under the Business Impact pathway, nevertheless, was that of 60, registering a 20-point drop from the 80 points requirement in the May 2021 draw.
A federal Express Entry candidate that is able to secure a PNP nomination – under any of the Express Entry aligned PNP streams – is allotted 600 CRS points.
These ‘additional’ points significantly improve the ranking of that Express Entry candidate in the pool, thereby guaranteeing an invitation to apply for PR in Canada via Express Entry.
|Held on a monthly basis, this is the 6th PEI PNP draw – as per a pre-determined annual schedule – to be held in 2021 so far.|
A total of 906 invitations have been issued by PEI PNP in 2021.
Of these, 817 were for those eligible for the Labour Impact and Express Entry streams.
Another 89 invitations went to candidates under the Business Impact stream.
