Immigration authorities in Prince Edward Island issued new invitations to applicants seeking the provincial nomination in its Express Entry, as well as in Labor Impact and Business Impact categories. The Office of Immigration issued 116 invitations to E.E. and Labor Impact Category candidates. Eight candidates in Business Impact Category also received them. The minimum score in the Business Category was 152. Furthermore, PEI Immigration authorities did not provide this score for the Labor Impact or the E.E. invitations.
E.E. candidates who wish to join the PEI E.E. must first create a profile in the Expression of Interest system. There is a review of Profiles and candidates get points based on factors like language, age, work experience, education, employment, and finally adaptability.
Moreover, the E.E. candidates who receive the invitation in the PEI E.E. Stream get 90 days for submitting the complete application to Immigration Office of the province. Nominated Applicants of PEI get 600 additional C.R.S. points. Through this they are in a good position to get an Invitation to Apply for permanent residence in Canada.
Furthermore, the Labor Impact Category in the province is special for individuals who have the necessary experience and skills needed by the labor market. This category has three streams:
• International Graduates
Some business streams closed now
The Provincial Government announced last week that the draw of September 20 will be the last round for the 100% Ownership and Partial Ownership streams in the Business Impact Category. These had become controversial.
The streams permitted nomination of candidates for permanent residence by the Island in exchange for starting a business in it. After some Investigations the authorities realized that several entrepreneurs did not open a business after receiving PR status.
Additionally, the Island will maintain the Work Permit Stream in the Business Category. It issues temporary work permit to the immigrant entrepreneurs for starting a business and gives nomination for Canadian PR after they fulfill the terms of a Performance Agreement.
