This program is for current PEI workers. This is an employer-driven program, so they can fill their intermediate-skilled positions that are hard to fill.
How to apply? Create a profile on the PEI Expression of Interest System, and if found eligible, you will be invited to submit a full application for provincial nomination. Your employer is also asked to complete the employer-related forms. Once nominated, you will need to send your PR application to IRCC along with your nomination certificate to obtain permanent residence.
