Aug 03, 2023: PEI holds first targeted Express Entry draw issues 58 invites
Prince Edward Island for the first time issued PNP invitations to applicants from targeted occupations. PEI holds first targeted Express Entry draw issues 58 invites under the PEI PNP Labour and Express Entry categories.
Besides, the applicants who have an invitation to this draw are from the following occupational sectors:
- Agriculture sectors
- Food Processing
Who can qualify to get an ITA under the PEI PNP Express Entry category?
If you wish to qualify for an ITA under the PEI PNP Express Entry category then you must:
- Firstly, have an active EE profile in the Express Entry (EE) System.
- Secondly, must have applied under 1 of the EE sub-streams:
- Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
- Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)
- Canadian Experience Class (CEC)
- Also, meet Human Capital Factors:
- Work Experience
- Language Skills
- Finally, match the PEI PNP draw cut-off.
Besides, once you get a provincial nomination from PEI against your EE profile then you will get an extra 600 CRS score. This raises your chances of getting an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for a Canada PR Visa. This is one of the key reasons for applicants applying via the PEI PNP + Express Entry pathway.
However, in comparison, to the last similar PEI PNP draw of June 29, 2023, we see 32 points fall in the invitations. A reason for the same can be attributed to the change in the current draw pattern. As the current draw is selecting applicants from specific job profiles. Thus, it is advisable to look forward to future PEI PNP draws, to assess the upcoming patterns.
