Immigrants are choosing Prince Edward Island, bringing needed skills, new ideas and a richness to our social and cultural fabric.
Prospective immigrants with the right skills, education and/or credentials to help grow our workforce may be nominated for permanent residency through the immigration pathways.
Our Entrepreneur Stream supports foreign nationals. This stream could be for you if you are interested in living in Prince Edward Island with your family, while owning and operating a business.

“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.”
