PEI PNP Draw Schedule 2024

Immigrating to PEI in 2024

Prince Edward Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP) invites candidates through an Expression of Interest (EOI) system. This means that interested candidates must first create an EOI profile with the PEI PNP. The EOI profile includes personal information, education, work experience, language proficiency, and other relevant details.

Once a candidate has submitted their EOI profile, they will be assigned a score based on the information provided. The highest-scoring candidates will receive an invitation for a provincial nomination.

The PEI PNP regularly conducts draws to invite the highest-scoring candidates to apply for provincial nomination. The draws typically take place once a month or as mentioned in the Prince Edward Island PNP draw schedule for 2024.

PEI PNP's Critical Worker Stream offers a direct route to apply for Canada PR visa - for certain workers who may not be eligible to pursue immigration through the Express Entry system.
