135 candidates received ITA’s through PEI’s new EOI draw
In July 18th draw 118 invitations were sent to Express Entry and Labour Impact candidates. In general, 135 candidates in Express Entry, Labour Impact and as well as Business Impact categories received invitations in a new draw held in July 18.
PEI PNP, the province’s immigrant nominee program, has issued new invitations.
Prince Edward Island, commonly known as PEI is also taking part in Canada’s Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).
Participating provinces in PNP nominate foreign workers, international graduates and as well as entrepreneurs to become Canadian permanent residence.
The federal Express Entry system also handles the PEI PNP which, in turn, allows the province to nominate Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class and as well as Canadian Experience Class applicants to receive permanent residency in Canada.
As an applicant in the federal Express Entry system, you can receive a provincial nomination which awards you an additional 600 points toward your Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. This effectively guarantees you to get an invitation to become a Canadian permanent residence.
The Express Entry system does not process PEI’s Labour Impact Category. This category is divided into three streams which include Skilled Workers (in PEI and also outside Canada), International Graduates and as well as Critical Workers.
If you want to apply for immigration through these streams, then you must be working in PEI or have an eligible full-time, and as well as a long-term job offer from an employer in the province.
Express Entry and Labour Impact candidates in the PEI PNP can now apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence if they received an invitation to apply.
However, candidates in the business category who are invited through the province’s Entrepreneur: Work Permit Stream first need to apply for a letter of support from the PEI PNP. This is necessary to receive a temporary work permit. Candidates receive a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence only if they can fulfill the terms and conditions of their business performance agreement.
