PEI PNP Express Entry Stream

Please be advised that the Province of PEI has filled its 2016 Express Entry allocation this calendar year.  Our office will continue to review applications that may potentially be considered in the new year, based on program criteria.  We thank you for your patience in relation to this matter and would be happy to discuss Provincial Nominee Program criteria that you may also consider.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has a new electronic system for managing applications for Permanent Residence called Express Entry. If you are interested in immigrating to Canada and you meet all eligibility requirements of one of the Federal Programs under Express Entry, you may create a profile at any time through IRCC’s website.

Once all criteria have been met, your profile will be accepted into the Express Entry Pool for a period of one full year. There is no limit to the number of profiles accepted into the pool and no deadline by which you must submit. Based on the information you submit, your profile will be scored and the top-ranking profiles will be invited to apply for permanent residence during each draw held throughout the year.

There are many actions you can take to increase your score and improve your chances of being invited to apply, such as upgrading language skills or education, securing a valid job offer from a Canadian Employer or by contacting the individual Provinces/Territories to be considered in a Provincial Nominee Program.

At this time, we are only collecting the single form posted on our website for Express Entry. To use this form, you must have already created an Express Entry profile with IRCC and you are now looking for a job offer or nomination from a Province you would like to live and work in to upgrade your score.

Once you submit the form to our office, it serves as an expression of your interest to immigrate to PEI. Since this is not a formal application to the PEI PNP, there is no application fee.

We will have more information regarding the formal application to the Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program: Express Entry Stream on our website in the coming months. Please continue to check back with us.

If you have already created an Express Entry Profile and are interested in living and working in Prince Edward Island, please complete the form below and email it to

Please note, the PEI PNP does not guarantee that all Express Entry Profiles submitted will be reviewed or accepted by our office. Only those profiles that the PEI PNP have interest in pursuing will be contacted.

All inquiries regarding the Express Entry process for PEI must be sent to
