Labour Impact Category - PEI PNP

Skilled workers and recent graduates wishing to permanently settle in PEI can take advantage of one of several Labour Impact streams of the Prince Edward Island Provincial Nomination Program (PEI PNP).

These programs give prospective immigrants who have a job offer from a PEI employer the opportunity to take advantage of an accelerated path to permanent residency. The PEI Labour Impact category includes three streams:

  • PEI Skilled Workers
  • Skilled Workers in PEI
  • Skilled Workers Outside Canada
  • PEI Critical Worker
  • PEI International Graduate

PEI Skilled Worker

Workers with relevant experience in skilled occupations and have been hired or identified by a PEI employer can receive a provincial nomination through one of the PEI Skilled Worker streams. The Skilled Workers in PEI stream is for candidates currently working in the province of PEI. Eligible candidates outside of PEI may be able to apply to the PEI Skilled Workers Outside of Canada stream.

  • Skilled Workers in PEI
  • Skilled Workers Outside Canada

PEI Critical Worker

Workers in low-skilled occupations who have worked on a full-time basis for at least six months with a PEI employer may be eligible for a provincial nomination through the PEI Critical Worker stream. Applicants must have experience as a truck driver, labourer, customer service agent, hospitality worker, or housekeeper.

PEI International Graduate

Recent graduates from recognized PEI post-secondary institutions who have received a full-time, permanent job offer in a skilled occupation and hold a valid Post-Graduation Work Permit may be eligible for the PEI International Graduate stream.
PEI Labour Impact Category Ranking System

If a candidate meets all of the Skilled Worker in PEI eligibility requirements, they will need to create a profile in the PEI Expression of Interest (EOI) system. Applicants will be awarded up to 100 points based on their age, language, education, work experience, employment, and adaptability.
