The current focus of Prince Edward Island’s PNP program is to invite candidates who are already present in Canada and working in occupations that are in demand on the island. Hence, candidates with job offer in PEI are preferred.

As the island recovers from the pandemic’s economic impact, more draws are expected in the future.

Successful applicants receive additional 600 points to their CRS score, thereby virtually guaranteeing an ITA from Express Entry draw.

Canada’s Provincial Nominee Programs are extremely popular with applicants as it provides a certain pathway to Canadian permanent residence with 600 points.
