Skilled Workers Outside Canada
If you are a foreign national and possess a job offer from a PEI employer, you can apply under this stream. It is an employer-driven program for specific hard-to-fill skilled positions outside Canada. PEI Employers need to get in touch with the Office of Immigration for approving the job offer and submitting the PEI-EOI profile.
In all the above immigration streams, you will need to create a profile in the PEI – Expression of Interest System.
Atlantic Immigration Pilot (AIP)
The Atlantic Immigration Pilot, was introduced on a pilot basis for three years in 2017. Its primary goal is to to fulfill labor market requirements by supporting employers in the four Atlantic provinces of Canada:
- Prince Edward Island
- Nova Scotia
- New Brunswick
- Newfoundland and Labrador.
In the AIP, employers have to adhere to certain criteria for enrollment to hire qualified immigrants for hard-to-fill job roles. They will also need to provide initial and ongoing support to newcomers and their families.
Foreign nationals can apply for permanent residency in Canada through three immigration streams of Intermediate skilled, high skilled and International graduate. Job offer from a designated PEI employer is required to apply under this stream apart from fulfilling the rest of the eligibility criteria.
