PEI PNP Express entry category
The Express Entry category of the Prince Edward Island PNP is aligned with the Government of Canada’s Express Entry system.
Eligible applicants receive a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score for their age, work experience, education, and language skills in English and French.
Express Entry applicants who receive a provincial nomination receive an additional 600 points for their CRS score and are effectively guaranteed an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence in a subsequent Express Entry draw.

EOI profiles are awarded points based on the province’s unique points grid. The highest-rated applicants are then invited to apply through monthly draws.
Prince Edward Island PNP did not provide a breakdown of the number of Express Entry and Labor Impact applicants that were invited, nor the minimum EOI score required for each category.
