Construction of EOI Profile

Candidates must first construct an EOI profile with all the information they feel is necessary to meet the selection criteria in order to begin the immigration process through PEI PNP. Candidates are then added to the EOI pool and wait to get invites in accordance with the characteristics of their profile and the current minimum score in PEI’s point grid.

Although the draw date and category are set in stone, PEI PNP does not release the minimum score and selection criteria beforehand due to application inventory and labor market fluctuations.

Expedited Processing

Moreover, PEI PNP ensures expedited processing, with 80% of applications typically finalized within 10-12 months, ensuring a streamlined pathway for prospective immigrants.
