Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP)
Prince Edward Island is one of eastern Canada's maritime provinces, off New Brunswick and Nova Scotia in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. It is Canada’s smallest province.
With red-sand beaches, lighthouses and an interior of fertile farmland, it's nicknamed "Garden of the Gulf." It’s renowned for its seafood, notably lobster and mussels. Charlottetown, the relaxed capital, is home to 1847 Province House, birthplace of the nation of Canada.
The PEI PNP is Prince Edward Island’s Provincial Nominee Program. Through this program, prospective applicants with the skills and experience may receive a Prince Edward Island Provincial Nomination Certificate, which will allow them to apply for Canadian permanent residence.
The PEI PNP accepts applications under three major immigration categories:
PEI PNP Express Entry
Applicants who are eligible to enter the Express Entry pool and are interested in settling in Prince Edward Island may apply to the PEI PNP Express Entry Stream. The PEI PNP does not guarantee that all Express Entry profiles submitted will be reviewed or accepted. Only those applicants with skills matching current identified labour needs for the province will be considered.
