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.

The PEI Expression of Interest (EOI) system gathers important information about candidates in the pool and invites those who are most likely to meet Prince Edward Island’s economic and labour market needs. The PEI EOI selection process is 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
