Prince Edward Island (PEI) is Canada’s smallest province and is known for its beautiful sandy beaches. Due in part to the warm and welcoming nature of its residents, PEI is quickly becoming an attractive settlement destination for newcomers to Canada. To entice more immigrants to the province, the PEI provincial government recently announced the addition of five new categories to their Provincial Nominee Program. By expanding the program, PEI hopes to increase the population and supply of workers, and to fuel business and economic development in the province. Applicants who are students in Canada, semi-skilled workers, and investors are now able to fast-track their applications for Canadian permanent residency through PEI.
