Aligned with the Canadian government’s Express Entry System, PEI PNP’s Express Entry Category manages the applications for economic class immigration categories – Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class.
Under Express Entry, candidates have to create their profiles that go into a pool. Then they receive a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score basis various human capital factors, which involve age, education, work experience and proficiency in the official language.
Those candidates who are able to secure a provincial nomination are awarded additional 600 points which contributes to their existing CRS score, meaning an effectively guaranteed Invitation to Apply (ITA) from the Federal Government of Canada in a later Express Entry draw.
Express Entry candidates are required to create an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile with PEI PNP to be considered for a provincial nomination.
