PEI Express Entry is aligned with the federal Express Entry system of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada [IRCC].
A nomination through the PEI PNP increases the chances of a federal Express Entry candidate being issued an Invitation to apply [ITA] by IRCC.
To be considered for a PEI Express Entry nomination, an individual must have an IRCC Express Entry profile and meet the specific requirements for any 1 of the Express Entry programs – the Federal Skilled Worker Program [FSWP], the Federal Skilled Trades Program [FSTP], or the Canadian Experience Class [CEC].
