Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP)

Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP)

PEI is considered "the birthplace of Canada". The "Charlottetown conference" — which led to the country’s formation — took place in PEI in 1864. The island province is renowned not only for its lush farmland and beautiful coasts, but it is also home to a burgeoning economy centered around agriculture, tourism, and fishing. The Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP), a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), is a collection of immigration pathways that target immigrants with business acumen, skilled workers, and young graduates who are fresh from post-secondary education. The PEI PNP 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.

The province operates several immigration streams divided among three categories:

  • PEI Express Entry
  • PEI Labour Impact
  • PEI Business Impact


  1. PEI Express Entry

Prospective immigrants who are in the federal Express Entry pool and have expressed their interest of 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, however only applicants whose skills and experience match the province’s current labour needs will be considered for Express Entry PNP.

  1. 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.

  • Skilled Workers in PEI
  • Skilled Workers Outside Canada
  • Critical Worker
  • International Graduate


  1. Business Impact

Whether establishing a business with 100% ownership or investing in a new or established PEI business, individuals wishing to immigrate to Canada on a business visa may take advantage of the Business Impact stream of the PEI PNP. They may also choose to obtain a work permit by investing in a PEI business, which will provide a faster transition to their new life in Canada and PEI.
