On 20th June, the province of Prince Edward Island invited 113 candidates in its Express Entry, Labour Impact and Business Impact immigration categories.
The PEI PNP is one of the most active in Canada, and through the monthly invitation rounds, it has helped the province achieve a population growth rate of 1.8 per cent in 2018. This programme invites immigration candidates who meet labour market needs in the province.
Candidates who are invited through PEI’s Express Entry or Labour Impact categories can apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence. A total of 106 invitations went to candidates in these two categories.
PEI’s Express Entry Stream is linked to the federal Express Entry system, and to be considered for a provincial nomination through either category, the first step is to register an Expression of Interest, or EOI, with PEI’s immigrant nominee program, the PEI PNP.
Out of 100, EOIs are given a score based on factors such as education, work experience and proficiency in English or French. The highest-ranked candidates are then invited to apply for a provincial nomination through monthly draws.
Express Entry candidates who receive a provincial nomination are awarded an additional 600 points toward their ranking score.
Another seven invitations were also issued to candidates in PEI’s Business Impact: Work Permit Stream.
This stream allows eligible foreign entrepreneurs, having business ownership or eligible management experience, to invest in and run a business in PEI.
The invited Business Impact candidates can seek approval for their business proposal. On the basis of this approval, the candidates receive a letter of support from PEI, allowing them to apply for a temporary work permit from Canada’s federal government.
The Work Permit Stream also operates on an EOI basis and the lowest-ranked candidate in the June 20th draw had a score of 112.
