For Workers & Professionals
Our Workforce Category could be for you if you are interested in working for a PEI Employer, while living in Prince Edward Island. You can find the best fit for your education and experience through our various Workforce streams:
As an employer, staff of the Office of Immigration can assist you to support foreign nationals for permanent residency if you cannot find employees in the local labour market to fill permanent labour shortages and skill gaps for your business.
PEI Employers may also apply to become Designated Employers under the PEI Atlantic Immigration Program (AIP). If you meet program criteria, you may then Endorse your current or potential employees so they can work in PEI and apply to become Permanent Residents.
“When I was hired, my supervisor told me that we are like a small family and it seems to be true. PEI is a very attractive place for us because there are lots of things to do. My son is in swimming and he’s going to try ice hockey.”
