PEI Express Entry Category

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.


Prince Edward Island Labour Impact Category

The Labour Impact Category is for foreign nationals with a valid job offer in Prince Edward Island and employer support. There are three streams: Skilled Worker, Critical Worker, and International Graduate.

To be considered for a provincial nomination through the Labour Impact Category, candidates in this category must also submit an Expression of Interest.


Prince Edward Island Business Impact Category
