Work Permit Stream

What is Work Permit Stream?

The PEI PNP- Work Permit Stream is for foreign nationals with business ownership or extensive management experience who would like to move to PEI to start their business, and eventually become a permanent resident. The applicant will come to PEI on a work permit and operates a business for a minimum of one year prior to receiving a nomination for permanent residency.

After September 20, 2018, the province of PEI closed the previous 100% Ownership and Partial Ownership streams. Now, PEI has only one pathway for entrepreneurs through the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) – the Work Permit Stream.
