PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND PROVINCIAL NOMINEE PROGRAM

The PEI-PNP Labor Impact Category focuses on the ever changing Labor market needs of Prince Edward Island’s innovative and primary industries. While Prince Edward Island’s Labor force is quite small and many industries are seasonal, Labor market gaps are a reality and finding new employees, within Canada, who have the right skill sets, can be a challenge for many Prince Edward Island businesses.

The Labor Impact Category facilitates and provides opportunity for Prince Edward Island businesses and potential new employees from outside of Canada, who have the right skill set to immigrate, work and settle in Prince Edward Island.

There are three streams under Labor Impact Category from which an applicant can choose:

  • Skilled Worker Stream
