PEI PNP Express Entry draw just selects 29 applicants

Dec 21, 2023: PEI PNP Express Entry draw just selects 29 applicants. This is the second draw of the year where the island has selected the lowest number of applicants. Before this, the May 10, 2023, PEI PNP draw issued 20 invites. Besides, the details of the current draw are as the following:

  • Firstly, only 29 applicants got an invitation to apply for a PNP invitation.
  • Secondly, out of 29 invitations:
    • Labour and Express Entry category: 26 invitations issued.
    • Business Work Permit Entrepreneur category: 3 applicants have an invitation with an EOI score of 80.
  • In addition, applicants from the food processing, construction, and healthcare sectors have an invitation.


It may seem a bit low when we see the PEI PNP Express Entry draw just selecting 29 applicants. However, this lower figure may be attributed to the 2023 ending soon. But PEI PNP may surprise us with one or two more draws before the year ends. Besides, as of now, the province has issued 2,422 invites in 22 PEI PNP draws.


Did the PEI PNP Express Entry draw select you from the Express Entry linked stream?

If yes, then you are in for an amazing time. However, before we discuss the benefit of applying to the PEI PNP EE stream you must know its eligibility criteria first such as:

  • Firstly, create an online profile in the Express Entry (EE) System.
  • Select one of the EE sub-streams you qualify to apply for such as:
    • Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
    • Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)
    • Canadian Experience Class (CEC)
  • Secondly, you must meet Human Capital Factors:
    • Age
    • Education
    • Work Experience
    • Language Skills
  • Also, apply to the PEI PNP EE stream.
  • Finally, get an invitation from the province in periodic draws.


The perk of this route is that if you get a PNP nomination against your EE profile then you will get an extra 600 CRS score. This will raise your chances of getting an ITA for Canada PR visa from IRCC.

Perhaps this is the reason that in 2023 everyone is opting for Express Entry + PNP Pathway. In short, take our Free Assessment. Contact Us to know more.
