Prince Edward Island has supported its healthcare and trucking industries in the fight against coronavirus by inviting essential workers through the PEI PNP.
In three draws since March, invitations have been issued to specific COVID-19 essential workers.
A total of 29 Labour Impact and Express Entry stream invitations have been issued, again illustrating the flexibility of Canada’s immigration system.
In the first draw, dated March 23, 5 invites were issued, with 10 invites issued in an April 27 draw and 14 on May 15.
The three draws previously scheduled to take place over this period were postponed.
