PEI Provincial Nominee Program
The PEI PNP is designed to attract immigrants who have the skills and experience that are in demand in Prince Edward Island. The program offers a variety of streams, each with its own eligibility requirements. Some of the streams are open to skilled workers, entrepreneurs, and business owners. Other streams are open to graduates of Prince Edward Island universities and colleges.

Once an application is approved, the applicant can receive a provincial nomination, which is a major advantage in the Express Entry immigration system. Applicants with a provincial nomination are given priority processing and are more likely to be invited to apply for permanent residence in Canada.
To immigrate through the PEI PNP, candidates must first register in the province’s Expression of Interest (EOI) system. After their profile has been assessed and they have been assigned a CRS score, the top applicants are invited to submit an application during regular draws.The PEI Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP) issues Invitations to Apply (ITAs) to qualified candidates every month, with a few exceptions. The frequency, size, and date of the next PEI PNP draw are determined by the needs of the Prince Edward Island economy.
