The eligible candidates are evaluated on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), which focuses on the scores individuals get for their age, education, work experience, fluency in English, and French. Applicants within the Express Entry who get nominated from the provincial level get a guaranteed Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residency in a subsequent Express Entry draw.
Express Entry candidates at the provincial nomination program must first show their willingness to apply for permanent residency. That said, they are required to create an Expression of Interest (EOI) file, which should be submitted together with a PEI PNP form.
However, EOI forms are not subject to federal policies but are graded according to every province’s point grid. Candidates who achieve high marks on their EOIs are selected to partake in monthly draws.
Requirements for the Labor Impact Category
As mentioned earlier, candidates from the Labour Impact category were invited to take place in PEI’s nominations twice this month. This category is limited to applicants who have a job offer in Prince Edward Island. They also should have recommendations and support from their employer. The class is divided into three sub-categories:
- Skilled Worker
- Critical Worker
- International Graduate
Like their Labour Impact counterparts, they also submit an EOI to extend to the provincial-level draw.
Leverage the Business Impact Category and Start a Business in PEI
Immigration candidates who took part in PEI PNP tallied 29. The draw, which took place on July 16, required the applicants to obtain an EOI file as a requirement for the Business Impact: Work Permit Class. The eligible candidates in this category had a minimum EOI score of 117, which matched the same pass mark as the Business Impact draw, which was previously held on June 23.
The Work Permit Stream was designed for foreigners who wish to own and operate a business in Prince Edward Island.
