The Express Entry Stream
Prince Edward Island has an Express Entry category which works by considering the candidates who have already been listed in the federal Express Entry Pool. PEI officials give them a provincial nomination for permanent residence. The nominations earn candidates an extra 600 points in their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. This earns them an automatic Invitation to Apply (ITA) for residence in Canada.
The process of application is simple. Potential candidates need to follow the following steps:
- Ensure that you are eligible
- Make your PEI Expression of Interest profile
- Get your invitation to apply
- Prepare and submit the application
- Make an application for permanent residence
