The Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP) offers a variety of immigration pathways that target immigrants with business acumen, skilled workers, and young graduates fresh from post-secondary education. The program gives prospective newcomers the chance to receive a provincial nomination through one of its many immigration streams, which may fast-track their path to Canadian permanent residence.
There are three categories of immigration streams offered by the PEI PNP:
PEI Express Entry
Prospective immigrants who are in the federal Express Entry pool and have expressed their interest in living and working in Prince Edward Island may be eligible for PEI Express Entry. Candidates must be eligible for one of the federal economic immigration classes, but only applicants whose skills and experience match the province’s current labor needs will be considered for Express Entry PNP.
PEI Labour Impact
Foreign workers and recent graduates are welcome to apply for provincial nomination via one of Prince Edward Island’s Labour Impact streams. These programs give individuals who have already been hired by a PEI employer the opportunity to access an accelerated path to permanent residency should they receive PEI PNP.
