About PEI PNPs:
The Canadian provinces and territories make use of the Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) to select immigration candidates who meet their labour market needs. Some of the PNPs align with Canada’s federal Express Entry system.
The PEI PNP selection process operates through an Expression of Interest (EOI) system which is points based and used to assess potential candidates in advance of issuing an invitation to apply.
The PEI PNP Express Entry Category is an enhanced PNP as it works within the Canadian federal government’s Express Entry system. Under this program, Express Entry candidates need to create an EOI profile with the PEI PNP in order to be considered for a provincial nomination from PEI. The province invites the highest-scoring candidates to apply through monthly draws.
The Labour Impact Category is for foreign nationals having a valid job offer in PEI, and have support from their employer. For consideration for a provincial nomination, immigration candidates in this category must also submit an EOI profile. The category is further divided into three sub-categories: Skilled Worker, Critical Worker, and International Graduate.
The Business Impact Category supports foreign nationals who are interested in owning and operating a business in PEI and who would like to apply for a nomination for permanent residency through the PEI PNP. Priority will be given to applicants who have the greatest potential to become economically established in PEI.
