Express Entry stream of PEIPNP

The applicants registered in Federal Express Entry system of Canada can submit a separate EOI (Expression of Interest) profile in PEIPNP mentioning all key details of the profile. The Prince Edward Island assess the submitted EOI profiles and allocate them points based on the key profile factors, i.e. age, education, work experience, and language ability, etc.

The EOI is not an application for nomination, rather it's a desire or request to apply for the provincial nomination in the Prince Edward Island. Although, PEIPNP don't necessarily demand the job offer from PEI, however, the applicants with connection to the province are given the preference for sure. The top scoring EOI profiles get the Invitation to Apply for provincial nomination from the Prince Edward Island.
