PEI EOI System - Selection Factors

The PEI EOI system gathers important information about candidates in the pool to rank and select those who are most likely to meet Prince Edward Island’s economic and labour market needs, based on one or more of the following attributes:

  • Language: English or French
  • Education: level and field of education and where completed
  • Skill and work experience level
  • Strategic priorities: attributes that would address immediate labour market needs in PEI
  • Other factors relevant to employment prospects: including, but not limited to having a job offer in PEI and/or previous Canadian work experience

Candidates invited to apply in this draw will receive an email notification that will include their file number and instructions for submission of the complete application to the Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP).

Immigrating to PEI in 2024

This draw is in line with the PEI PNP draw schedule for 2024. PEI is the only Canadian province that makes its draw schedule public in advance. We can expect 23 PEI PNP draws in 2024.

In 2023, Prince Edward Island PNP issued 2,422 invitations across 22 draws. The back-to-back EOI draws serve as a testament to PEI’s commitment to prioritising foreign skilled workers and businessmen with the necessary skills, qualifications, and potential to succeed in the province’s dynamic economy.

The same trend is expected to be carried out in 2024 as well.

Subsequently, you will be assigned a score, based on the details provided in your EOI profile. PEI then conducts an EOI draw, in which it sets the number of invitations to be issued, the category to be targeted - and the minimum cut-off score. If you’re selected, you will be issued an invitation to apply for permanent residency. 

80% of PEI PNP applications are processed within 10-12 months.
