The selection process of the PEI PNP operates through a points-based Expression of Interest (EOI) system that assesses potential candidates prior to issuing an invitation to apply. 

Candidates with the greatest potential of economically establishing themselves in the province are prioritized by the PEI PNP. If approved as a provincial nominee by the PEI PNP, the principal applicant as well as their dependent family members can then proceed to apply to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada [IRCC] for taking up permanent residence in Canada in the Provincial Nominee class.
