Expression of Interest Draws

Office of Immigration Invitations to Apply

PEI Provincial immigration pathways are dependent upon federal immigration allocations, application volumes, and provincial labour market needs. The PEI Office of Immigration is currently selecting and prioritizing skilled workers in higher demand sectors such as health care, trades, childcare, and other key industries facing labour shortages.  Individuals working in the sales and service sector may not receive an invitation to apply at this time.

An Expression of Interest is not an application, but an indication of your interest in being considered to apply to the PEI PNP. The Office reserves the right to limit intake or make exclusions from Expressions of Interest draws.
