Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program

The Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program is the immigration program of Prince Edward Island that is aimed at overseas nationals who can positively contribute to the province.

The PEI PNP is divided into 3 major immigration pathways. The first 2 pathways are further sub-divided into diverse categories. Under the third Express Entry pathway, PEI PNP offers a quick route for candidates to obtain the Canada PR Visa, often within just 6 months

Prospective applicants interested in immigration to Canada through PEI PNP have two methods to obtain the Nomination Certificate. The first method is to directly apply to the PEI PNP outside the Express Entry Program through the Office of Immigration of Prince Edward Island. If accepted by the PEI PNP, candidates can then create a profile in the Express Entry and include the Certificate of the Provincial Nomination in their Express Entry profile. 

The second method for obtaining a nomination from PEI PNP for prospective immigrants is to first create a profile in the Federal Express Entry pool. The candidates must then officially indicate their interest in immigrating to PEI within the Express Entry system. They can then be directly contacted by PEI PNP through Express Entry for offering an invitation to apply for PNP. This method is normally advisable as it permits the inclusion of your Profile ID in Express Entry while submission of EOI - Expression of Interest to PEI PNP. 

As the Express Entry profile is already present, candidates who are successful through PEI PNP can instantly be credited with the Nomination Certificate by the province. It will increase their CRS score in the Express Entry pool by 600 extra points which effectively ensures an ITA for Canada PR Visa in the subsequent Express Entry draw. 

The 3 major immigration pathways under Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program are: 

  • Business Impact Pathway
  • Labor Impact Pathway
  • Express Entry Pathway
