PEI Express Entry Immigration Category
The Express Entry Category of PEI is for the candidates who have a profile in the Federal Express Entry System that manages the pool of candidates for the three primary economic immigration programs of Canada, “Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class, and Canadian Experience Class.”
The Express Entry candidates will get an additional 600 points towards their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score on receiving a provincial nomination. This will make them move ahead in the line to get an ITA for Canada Permanent Residency.
Express Entry must first register their Expression of Interest (EOI) profile with PEI PNP where they must provide details like education, age, work experience, employment, and adaptability up to a max of 100 points. EOI profiles will be assigned points on the basis of the six factors mentioned above.
The candidates scoring highest points will get an ITA for a provincial nomination. The candidates might get the Invitations with or without a job offer in PEI.
PEI’s Labour and Business Impact Categories
The Labour Impact Category of PEI also operates on an EOI basis and is divided into three streams, “Skilled Worker, Critical Worker, and International Graduate.”
Candidates under this stream must be working currently in PEI or have a job offer from a PEI’s employer, among other criteria.
Candidates in Business Impact Work Permit Stream must have a minimum score of 130 in order to be eligible under the stream. This immigration category provides the selected entrepreneurs with a temporary work permit for operating a business in PEI and will be issued with a nomination for PR on meeting the business performance agreement.
