Prince Edward Island invited Express Entry, Labour Impact, and Business Impact immigration applicants this month.

Canada’s island territory invited 194 immigration applicants to make one stride nearer to permanent residence.

The Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP) held two invitation rounds so far in July.

The 1st draw was held on July 10, when the territory invited eight Labor Impact and Express Entry applicants to give an application for a provincial nomination. The PEI PNP didn’t tell of what number of applicants was invited from every immigration classification.

The draw on July 16 was substantially bigger. There were 157 applicants invited from the Labour Impact and the Express Entry class. The PEI PNP additionally invited 29 Business Impact applicants that day.

Generally the PEI PNP follows a pre-decided timetable for holding invitations. This year, the coronavirus pandemic has messed up the area’s plans. PEI has held two draws on time since March, on June 18 and July 16.

The next draw is planned for August 20.

PEI Express Entry Category

The PEI PNP Express Entry Class lined up with the Canadian government Express Entry system.

Express Entry manages with the applications for three economic-class immigration types: Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class.

Qualified applicants are given a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score for their age, work experience education, and language expertise in English and French.

Express Entry applicants who get a provincial nomination are given an extra 600 points toward their CRS score, and are adequately guaranteed an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence in a resulting Express Entry draw.

So as to be considered for a provincial nomination from PEI, Express Entry applicants required to make an Expression of Interest (EOI) profile with the PEI PNP.

EOI profiles are given point’s base on the territory’s special point’s framework. The most elevated scoring applicants are then invited to give an application by monthly draws.

The PEI PNP didn’t give a breakdown of what number of Express Entry and Labor Impact applicants were invited, nor the least EOI score required for every type.

Labour Impact Category

Applicants in the Labor Impact Type were invited in the two rounds this month.

This immigration type is for remote nationals who have a legitimate employment offer in PEI, and have support from their manager. It is separated into three streams: Skilled Worker, Critical Worker, and International Graduate.

Applicants include in this classification have to present an EOI profile in order to be considered for a provincial nomination through the Labor Impact type.

Business Impact Category

The PEI PNP provided invitations to 29 applicants with an EOI profile in the Business Impact: Work Permit Stream on July 16.

Those invited needed to have at least EOI score of 117, the similar as the past Business Impact draw on June 23.

The Work Permit Stream is for business people who wish to possess and work a business in PEI.

FSWP and FSTP candidates eligible to receive invitations to apply for permanent residence in the first all-program draw since March 4.Canada has resumed all-program Express Entry draws and is now issuing invitations to apply to Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) candidates.

Canada’s first all-program Express Entry draw since March 4 has issued 3,900 invitations to apply (ITAs) for permanent residence. Candidates needed a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of at least 478 to be invited in the July 8 invitation round.

Express Entry Draw

Since the coronavirus was labeled a pandemic and Canada introduced travel restriction to prevent its spread, Express Entry draws have been limited to Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC) candidates. This left FSWP and Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSTP) candidates in limbo. Most CEC candidates are already in Canada and therefore are not affected by Canada’s current travel restrictions.

PNP candidates continue to be invited as well to allow provinces to meet their labor market needs. It is important to note however that even when Canada was excluding FSWP and FSTP candidates, some of the CEC and PNP candidates being invited in previous draws were also outside of Canada.
