PEI PNP Draw: 113 immigration candidates invited

The Government of Prince Edward Island has released its June 17 PNP draw results

There are 113 immigration candidates been invited through its Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).

Most of the invitations, 101, were issued to Express Entry and Labour Impact candidates. The remaining 12 invitations went to Business Impact candidates who had a minimum point threshold of 60.

This is the sixth draw of the year held by the Canadian maritime province.  PEI has invited 905 candidates, 816 of which were from the Labour Impact and Express Entry streams and 89 from the Business Impact stream.

PNPs allow Canada’s provinces and territories to select immigration candidates who meet their labour market needs.  This is true of  Prince Edward Island, which administers the Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP) within federally approved guidelines.

Immigration to P.E.I., like elsewhere in the country, has declined over the past year, largely due to travel restrictions. However, the federal government plans to make up the shortfall and achieve an ambitious immigration target in 2021. Under PNPs Canada’s target is to admit 80,800 new immigrants this year.
