Prince Edward Island (PEI) is one of Canada’s gems many have not heard of. It truly is a shame, seeing as PEI has some of the most beautiful sceneries, delicious seafood, friendly people, and exciting investment opportunities in all of Canada. The best part is - the beach is always within reach on this picture-perfect island province. If you haven’t heard about PEI, this is what you, as a prospective immigrant, must know.

Being one of Canada’s maritime provinces, PEI is in great need of skilled workers and is in fact struggling to fill vacancies in the local labour market. The province has its own Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) through which they find skilled workers to invite to come and live and work in PEI. Prince Edward Island immigration has just released dates for all the PNP draws they will have in 2019. Keep note of these dates so that you can make the move to Canada.
