You can apply for a nomination for permanent residency through the PEI PNP Skilled Workers Outside Canada Program of the Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program if you have a job offer from a Prince Edward Island employer.  This stream is employer-driven, allowing PEI employers to fill high-skilled positions that they are unable to fill through the province’s workforce. Through this stream, your employer offering you the job offer must be approved by the PNP prior to submitting an expression of interest profile.

To be eligible to apply for the PEI PNP Skilled Worker stream you must:

  • have a full-time long-term (i.e. permanent or minimum of  two years) job offer from a PEI employer in NOC Skill Level 0, A, or B
  • have legal status in the country of residence
  • be able to attend an interview with staff from the Office, if required
  • have successfully completed a post-secondary degree or diploma – a minimum two-year program
  • be between the ages of 18 and 59
  • have at least two years of full-time work experience in the past  five years;
  • possess sufficient English and/or French language ability to perform the job offered.  Language ability can be verified by one of the following:
    • A language test from an IRCC approved testing institute within the past  two years with a minimum score of CLB/NLCC 4
    • Employer signed PEI PNP-L06 Employer Language Declaration
    • Documents from an internationally recognized institution indicating that the principal language studied was in English or French
  • have sufficient financial resources for the applicant and family to pay all immigration costs (including travel expenses) to be able to establish in PEI
  • demonstrate a genuine intention to settle in PEI
