PEI’s Critical Worker Stream: Eligibility & Requirements

The PEI PNP Critical Worker stream is a potential Canadian immigration option for workers with a job offer in PEI in an occupation categorized into Training, Education, Experience, and Responsibilities (TEER) 4 or 5. 

To be eligible to receive an invitation, you would need to meet the following requirements:

Express Entry Profile NO
Connection to Province Work Experience
Job Offer
Language Proficiency CLB 4
Level of Education
High School
Work Experience NOC C or D (2 Years)
Investment Requirement None

Prince Edward Provincial Nominee Program (PEI PNP) invites candidates through an Expression of Interest (EOI) system. This means that interested candidates must first create an EOI profile with the PEI PNP. The EOI profile includes personal information, education, work experience, language proficiency, and other relevant details.

Once a candidate has submitted their EOI profile, they will be assigned a score based on the information provided. The highest-scoring candidates will receive an invitation to apply (ITA) for a provincial nomination.

PEI PNP's Critical Worker Stream offers a direct route to Canadian permanent residence for certain workers who may not be eligible to pursue immigration through the Express Entry system.
