Prince Edward Island held its draw on August 31 through the Labour and Express Entry stream of the PEI PNP. The invitations were issued to 22 candidates working in the healthcare, manufacturing, food processing, and construction sectors.

Provincial Nominee Program

The provincial nominee program or PNP is a great way to receive a Canadian permanent residency. Each PNP has one stream that is aligned with the Express Entry System, known as ‘Enhanced Nominations’. The advantage of enhanced PNP is that they award an extra CRS score of 600 points, which will guarantee PR to the applicant through express entry. Also, there is another stream under the PNP, known as ‘the base stream’. Here, you can apply to a PNP stream directly and once you obtain a provincial nomination, the federal government will process your permanent residence application.
