The PEI PNP has not provided a breakdown as to how many candidates were invited from the individual categories of Labour Impact and Express Entry in both the draws held this month.
Under normal circumstances, the PEI PNP follows a set pre-decided schedule for holding invitation rounds. With the COVID-19 situation, the PEI PNP has been unable to keep to the schedule. Since March, PEI has held 2 draws – on June 18 and July 16 – as per schedule.
Candidates have to submit their Expression of Interest [EOI] profile to the PEI PNP in order to be considered for the Labour Impact, Express Entry, and Business Impact categories.
