The Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP), is a collaboration of immigration programs that aims at immigrants with business experience, skilled workers, and young graduates who are fresh from post-secondary education.

The Skilled Workers Outside Canada program allows individuals who have been offered a job by an employer outside of Prince Edward Island to apply for a provincial nomination.
The Critical Worker Program is an option for workers who possess unique skills or experience that are needed in Prince Edward Island.
The International Graduate Program is an option for recent graduates of post-secondary institutions located in Prince Edward Island or other parts of Canada who wish to continue their education at one of the province’s public universities, as well as those who wish to work in Prince Edward Island upon completion of their studies.
The Business Impact stream of the PEI PNP is ideal for those who are interested in immigrating to Canada and becoming involved in their own small business or for those who wish to invest in an existing local business.
The province of Prince Edward Island offers one of the most comprehensive Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP) in Canada. The program helps entrepreneurs and investors from around the world establish themselves as permanent residents of Prince Edward Island (PEI).
The Business Impact stream is for individuals who wish to immigrate to Canada on a business visa and are interested in investing in a new or established PEI business. This stream offers two options:
A 100% ownership option is available for those who wish to own all the shares of the business. To be eligible for this option, applicants must have a minimum net worth of $600,000 and a minimum personal net worth of $300,000. The funds must be legally obtained and invested into the PEI company. Applicants will need to demonstrate that they have experience running a business or operating as an executive in another company.
A partial ownership option is available for those who do not want to own all the shares of the company but want an active role in managing it. Applicants must have a minimum personal net worth of $300,000 and invest at least 10% of their investment capital into the PEI company.
In both cases, applicants will need to demonstrate that they have experience running a business or operating as an executive in another company. They may also apply as part of this stream if they are already living in PEI and wish to obtain a work permit through investment in an existing business.
The Prince Edward Island Provincial Nomination Program (PEI PNP) is a popular Canadian immigration program that enables individuals with relevant skills and experience to apply for permanent residence.
