Prince Edward Island Express Entry Stream

PEI’s Express Entry stream manages candidates already in the Federal Express Entry Pool for a provincial nomination. Such provincial nominations from a PNP automatically award a candidate with 600 additional points to their Comprehensive Ranking System - CRS score. Securing a provincial nomination effectively guarantees an Invitation to Apply in a subsequent Express Entry draw. The PEI PNP offers direct pathways to Canadian Permanent Residency – one for candidates with a job offer, and one for those without.
