Out of 165 invitations, 138 candidates were invited under Labour & Express Entry, while 27 were invited under Business Work Permit Entrepreneur. As compared to the last draw in June 2022, the minimum point threshold has been lowered by five points to 60.

There were 123 invitations issued by PNP on February 17, 2022, which was the lowest number in 2022. The largest PEI PNP draw so far has been in October 2021 with 204 applicants. As of 2022, 991 applicants have been invited to participate in PEI PNP
Candidates already in the federal Express Entry Pool are considered for a provincial nomination in PEI’s Express Entry category.
Express Entry candidates must first create an EOI profile with the PEI PNP in order to be considered for a provincial nomination from PEI.
Express Entry candidates who receive a provincial nomination 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.
The PEI Express Entry Category offers two paths to Canadian permanent residence: one for candidates who have a job offer and one for those who do not.
1) Skilled Worker Stream
This employer-driven stream allows skilled workers with a job offer in Prince Edward Island to be nominated for Canadian permanent residence if they meet the following criteria:
2) Critical Worker Stream
This category is designed to prevent labour shortages and is open to foreign workers already in PEI with work in critical demand occupations. To qualify, they should meet these requirements:
Individuals applying through the P.E.I. Work Permit Stream must obtain a Canadian work permit and work for a P.E.I. business for the duration specified in a Performance Agreement.
Following the completion of the Performance Agreement, the applicant must make a minimum $150,000 investment in the business and commit to managing it on a daily basis from within P.E.I.
