Prince Edward Island- the popular Atlantic province of Canada has launched latest draw of its PNP, i.e. Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program (PEIPNP) on August 16, 2018. The draw invited total 118 candidates under three key streams of PEIPNP. Though, no official number out indicating invites sent individual categories, however, it appears that the Express Entry candidates got largest chunk of the same. Let's find more about the latest draw of PEIPNP (Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program).

PEIPNP Latest Draw

Out of the total 118 invites issued in the latest PEIPNP draw, 111 were issued to candidates under Express Entry and Labour Impact categories. The remaining invites were issued to the candidates registered under Business Impact category. The province, however, hasn't provided the segregated figures with regards to the invitations issued to the individual categories. Moreover, no information was shared about the fact, whether or not the invited candidates are working in the province of Prince Edward Island.

How it works

Although, PEIPNP accepts the EOIs of the candidates without job offer, however, the fact that remains strong is that it gives first preference to the applicants who have the job offer from PEI.

The PEIPNP allocates points to the applicants who register their profile under different categories based on its points grid designed for the EOI based immigration system. The points are given based on the answer given by the applicants while registering their profiles in the PNP. The top ranking candidates in the pool, later receive invites from the PEI.
