PEI PNP draws issues 297 Express Entry ITAs. Who has the invitation to apply for a PEI PNP nomination?

Prince Edward Island is the smallest province in Canada. And to equally reap the benefits of Canada immigration it participates in the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). Thus, through the PEI PNP, the province can get foreign skilled workers who can fill its empty job vacancies (1.2 million all over Canada) and grow its economy.

In addition, the PEI PNP is linked to Canada’s Express Entry (EE) System. So, if you wish to get an ITA in a PEI PNP EOI draw under the Express Entry linked category then you must match the following terms:

  • Firstly, have an active EE profile. And have applied under 1 of the EE sub-streams:
    • Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
    • Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)
    • Canadian Experience Class (CEC)
  • Secondly, meet EE Human Capital Factors:
    • Age
    • Education
    • Work Experience
    • Language Skills
  • Also, qualify for the PEI Express Entry category.
  • Finally, match the PEI PNP EOI draw score.

What next after getting ITA in a PEI PNP draw?

If you get an ITA against your active EE profile from PEI, then you will get an extra 600 CRS points credited to the EE pool. This gives a major benefit to applicants who wish to get an Invitation to Apply (ITA) to submit a complete and error-free application for a Canada PR visa.

So, if you choose the EE-linked PEI PNP pathway then you are in for a great treat. Because it will help you get faster permanent residency in Canada.
