When a candidate is nominated in the express entry stream, it automatically adds 600 points to the Comprehensive Ranking System of the candidate. This in turn ensures that the candidate gets an invitation to apply for Canadian Immigration.
All the candidates must fill a simple form on the official website of the provincial government while applying for a nomination from the Prince Edward Island. When the candidate fills the form online, it is considered as intent to migrate to the Prince Edward Island.
