PEI - More Invitations sent to Express Entry Candidates in the Second Round

March 2018, 20
EMAIL  Print A+

72 candidates were issued invitations to apply by The Prince Edward Island under the Labour Impact and Express Entry Categories of its Provincial Nominee Program. Moreover, seven candidates were also invited to apply under the Business Impact Category and they had scored between 135 and 142.

The Express Entry stream gives superior provincial nominations to successful candidates. This translates into granting of 600 additional CRS points, to the candidates figuring in the Federal Express Entry pool who get the provincial nomination from the Province. They also get an Invitation to Apply for PR in a later invitation round of federal Express Entry.

The Office of Immigration plans to have a new Expression of Interest system from the present year for overseas nationals who are interested to apply for any immigration category in Canada that is managed under the Provincial Nominee Program of the Prince Edward Island.

How does the new system work?

All the immigration applications which are submitted to the PNP pass through these three steps:

Step 1: Creating an account, submitting a profile in the EOI system

Step 2: The top-ranked candidates who are eligible and have a connection to PEI, receive an invitation for submitting an application to the PNP.

Step 3: A review is conducted of the application that is submitted to the Immigration Office. The successful applicant submits another application to the Canadian Government to seek permanent residency.

For the Express Entry category of the PNP, candidates are given a score out of 100 on the factors of their age, proficiency in the language, education received, employment, work experience, and degree of adaptability.

Express Entry Category of PEI offers two pathways to attain PR status, and one of this favors candidates who do not have a job offer on the Island.

Regarding the present draw, the Office of Immigration has mentioned that candidates who successfully received the invitation to apply need to have a job offer with an existing business in the PEI.

A point to note here is that submission of an Expression of Interest is not regarded as an application, but it is an indication to the authorities that the candidate is willing to be associated for the category of immigration that is managed by the PNP.

At present, the Government of the Province is not charging a fee for submitting an EOI.

In the update, Prince Edward Island has released a list, which outlines the countries of origin, of all the candidates invited, reflecting its commitment, to have a diversity in the province.
