Understanding PEI’s Express Entry Stream

PEI’s Express Entry stream functions by selecting candidates from the federal Express Entry Pool for provincial nomination. A provincial nomination adds a significant 600 points to a candidate’s Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score, virtually guaranteeing an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian immigration. This stream offers pathways to permanent residence for candidates both with and without a job offer.

Navigating PEI’s Labour Impact Category

PEI’s Labour Impact Category encompasses two streams tailored to address specific labour market needs:

  1. Skilled Worker Stream: Designed for individuals with a job offer from a PEI business in a specified occupation category (TEER 0, 1, 2, or 3), this stream requires candidates to meet various criteria, including educational qualifications, work experience, language proficiency, and settlement funds.
  2. Critical Worker Stream: Targeting labour shortages, this stream is for foreign workers already employed in critical demand roles within PEI. Eligible candidates must hold a valid Canadian work permit, possess relevant work experience, and demonstrate basic proficiency in English or French, among other requirements.
