Prince Edward Island Express Entry Stream
PEI’s Express Entry system considers candidates already existing in the Federal Express Entry Pool for a provincial nomination.
This nomination automatically adds 600 points to a candidate’s Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score and assures an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian immigration.
The PEI Express Entry Category provides two pathways to acquire Canadian permanent residence, one for the candidates with a job offer and one for those without.
Prince Edward Island Business Impact Category (Work Permit Stream)
The candidates who apply under the PEI Work Permit Stream must acquire a Canadian work permit or work for PEI business for a certain period as mentioned in a Performance Agreement.
After the Performance Agreement is completed, it is a necessity to make a minimum investment of $150,000 in the business and commit to managing the business day-to-day from within P.E.I.
