PEI PNP DRAW: 113 IMMIGRATION CANDIDATES INVITED
June 17, 2021
Prince Edward Island held a draw through the province’s Expression of Interest system on Thursday, June 17.
The Government of Prince Edward Island has released its June 17 PNP draw results.
The province invited a total of 113 immigration candidates through its Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).
Most of the invitations, 101, were issued to Express Entry and Labour Impact candidates. The remaining 12 invitations went to Business Impact candidates who had a minimum point threshold of 60.
This is the sixth draw of the year held by the Canadian maritime province. PEI has invited 905 candidates, 816 of which were from the Labour Impact and Express Entry streams and 89 from the Business Impact stream.
Immigration to P.E.I., like elsewhere in the country, has declined over the past year, largely due to travel restrictions. However, the federal government plans to make up the shortfall and achieve an ambitious immigration target in 2021. Under PNPs Canada’s target is to admit 80,800 new immigrants this year.
The PEI PNP’s Express Entry Category is an enhanced PNP, which means it is linked with the federal government’s Express Entry system.
Express Entry manages the applications for three economic-class immigration programs: Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class.
Eligible candidates are given a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score for their age, work experience, education, and language proficiency in English or French.
Express Entry candidates who receive a provincial nomination are given an additional 600 points toward their CRS score and are effectively guaranteed an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence in a subsequent Express Entry draw.
In order to be considered for a provincial nomination from P.E.I., Express Entry candidates need to create an EOI profile with the PEI PNP.
