The immigration policy for Prince Edward Island that is targeted at foreign nationals who can positively contribute to the province is known as the Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program.

There are three main immigration channels in the PEI PNP. The first two paths are broken into further, varied categories. The PEI PNP provides a speedy way for applicants to get the Canada PR Visa under the third Express Entry pathway, frequently in as little as six months.

There are two ways for potential applicants interested in entering Canada through the PEI PNP to get the Nomination Certificate. The first option is to apply directly to the PEI PNP through the Office of Immigration of Prince Edward Island, outside of the Express Entry Program. Candidates can then construct a profile in Express Entry and put the Certificate of the Provincial Nomination in it after being accepted by the PEI PNP.

The second way involves first creating a profile in the Federal Express Entry pool in order to be nominated by the PEI PNP for potential immigrants. The applicants must then formally express their desire to immigrate to Prince Edward Island using the Express Entry mechanism. Through Express Entry, PEI PNP can then get in touch with them immediately to extend an invitation to apply for PNP. This approach is typically the best choice because it enables you to submit your EOI – Expression of Interest – to the PEI PNP while also including your Profile ID in Express Entry.

Candidates who are chosen through the PEI PNP can immediately receive credit from the province for the Nomination Certificate because the Express Entry profile is already present. It will provide them a 600-point boost to their CRS score in the Express Entry pool, thus guaranteeing them an ITA for a Canada PR visa in the ensuing Express Entry draw.

Under the Prince Edward Island Provincial Nominee Program, there are three main immigration routes:

✅ Business Impact Pathway

✅ Labour Impact Pathway

✅ Express Entry Pathway

Business Impact Pathway for the PEI PNP

The PEI PNP’s Business Impact Pathway is for applicants who want to invest in and actively manage a business in Prince Edward Island. This PEI PNP immigration route is further broken into the following three groups:

Pathway for Business Impact: 100% Ownership Category

100 per cent Ownership Category as the name proposes, is for outside nationals who will claim 100% of the organization that is established in Prince Edward Island. It very well may be a fresh out of the box new organization that the individual beginnings, or it very well may be a finished acquisition of a current organization on Prince Edward Island.

Requirements:

People who want to apply for one of the immigration streams under the PEI PNP must meet a variety of standards. While many of the qualifications are the same for every application, the requirements vary based on the immigration sub-category.

100% Ownership Category requires the individuals to: 

Offer a detailed plan of business for the business being bought in PEI 

Offer ongoing and active management of the business by staying in PEI 

Undertake an agreement of escrow with a stipulation of a deposit of $200,000

Invest at least $150,000 into the business in PEI 

Apart from the above, the business must also fulfil specific criteria to qualify for the 100% Ownership Category. The business has to be: 

A corporation for-profit with good standing on all obligations and debts 

Uphold an enduring establishment and corporate headquarters in PEI 

Make a payment of all income tax for taxable income 

Possess assets having minimum book value worth of $150,000

Possess the potential of creating noteworthy financial profit to PEI

The 100% Ownership Category under PEI PNP specifies comprehensive requirements for the owner of the business as well. This is because the business owner is treated equally important as that of the business itself.

Pathway for Business Impact: Partial Ownership Category

For foreign nationals who prefer to own a portion of a firm in the province rather than the entire enterprise, the PEI PNP’s Partial Ownership Category is part of the Business Impact Pathway. The candidates must purchase a minimum of one-third of the company. As an alternative, they can invest at least CAD 1,000,000 in the business through an equity investment.

Requirements:

 ➡  Provide a thorough business plan for the partial ownership of the business.

 ➡ Continue to operate the company actively and continuously by remaining in PEI 

 ➡ Enter into an escrow agreement with a $200,000 deposit requirement.

 ➡ Contribute at least $150,000 to the company on Prince Edward Island for a minimum of 33.3% of the voting shares, or invest at least $1,000,000 in the company. 

Pathway for Business Impact: Work Permit Category

The Work Permit Category is for foreign people who wish to immigrate to Prince Edward Island and work for the company they wish to invest in. It is a fantastic option if the applicants want to gain knowledge of regular business operations before committing money. If not, the Work Permit Category outlines requirements that are comparable to those of the Partial Ownership Category.

Requirements

➡ Get a work visa for Prince Edward Island. 

➡ Present a thorough business plan for either partial or full ownership of the company. Continue to run the company actively while residing in PEI.

➡ Agree to the terms of the Performance Agreement, which include requirements for financial support of the company.

➡ Make a minimum $150,000 investment in the company.

All applicants for work permits, joint ventures, and full ownership must meet the following requirements:

✅  Be between the ages of 59 and 21.

✅ Possess at least a High School diploma.

✅  Have a minimum net worth of $600,000.

Express Entry Pathway for the PEI PNP

The province of Prince Edward Island uses the Canada Express Entry system to draw potential immigrants to its provincial nominee program, or PEI PNP. PEI can send a NOI Notification of Interest to Express Entry participants whose profiles fulfil the standards the government is looking for.

Various requirements must be met by applicants who want to be accepted into the PEI PNP using the Express Entry pathway. Candidates must have the abilities required by the PEI Province labour market at this time. Due to the shifting demands of the province’s labour market, these standards change over time. It is not necessary to have a job offer from a company in PEI.

Requirements

Candidates need to have a profile registered in the Canada Express Entry pool. They must be eligible for at least one of the following three economic programs before submitting the profile:
