This Stream is for foreign nationals interested in pursuing a viable business opportunity in PEI who would like to apply for a nomination for permanent residency through the PEI PNP. If approved as a provincial nominee, you and your dependent family members can apply to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to become a permanent resident of Canada in the Provincial Nominee class.
The Business Impact Category supports foreign nationals who are interested in owning and operating a business in PEI and who would like to apply for a nomination for permanent residency through the PEI PNP. Priority will be given to applicants who have the greatest potential to become economically established in PEI.
The PEI PNP selection process operates through an Expression of Interest (EOI) system which is points based and used to assess potential candidates in advance of issuing an invitation to apply. The intent of the process is to identify candidates with the greatest potential to become economically established.
As a first step, interested applicants must review this guide to ensure they meet program criteria. If program criteria are met, applicants register and create a profile through our EOI system.
If you choose to use an immigration representative they must be an approved Island Agent. Island Agents are the only representatives authorized in PEI to submit profiles for consideration as they have extensive knowledge of PEI and our economic requirements and opportunities.You are not required to use a representative to complete the work on your behalf if you have the ability to represent your own interest in the immigration process. If you are not using a representative you are required to meet with the Office to demonstrate your understanding of the program criteria and connectivity to PEI prior to finalizing your EOI profile.
