PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND PROVINCIAL NOMINEE PROGRAM
PEI is considered “the birthplace of Canada” since the “Charlottetown conference”, which led to the country’s formation in 1864. PEI, the island province, is renowned not only for its lush farmland and beautiful coasts, but it is also home to a burgeoning economy centred on agriculture, tourism, and fishing.
Through the Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP), prospective immigrants with the right skills and experience may receive a Prince Edward Island Provincial Nomination Certificate. The PEI PNP consists of the following immigration categories: PEI Express Entry, Labour Impact, and Business Impact.
PEI Express Entry is designed for candidates who are eligible to enter the Express Entry pool and are interested in living and working in PEI. Applicants may benefit from short processing times; however, only those applicants with skills matching current identified labour needs will be considered.
