To be eligible for the PEI International Graduate stream, candidates must have graduated from a minimum two-year program at a publicly-funded post-secondary institution in PEI. Candidates must also have been working in PEI for at least six months in a position that is directly related to their PEI post-secondary education.
Candidates must have a full-time, permanent job offer from their current PEI employer. The job offer must be for a position classified as National Occupational Classification (NOC) Skill Level 0, A, or B.
While there is no minimum language proficiency to meet the eligibility requirements for this stream, candidates must have sufficient ability to communicate in English or French.

Candidates must have completed a minimum two-year post-secondary program in PEI.
Candidates must have at least six months of experience working in PEI.
Candidates must be between 18 and 59 years old to be eligible to apply to this stream.

Intention to Reside

The International Graduate stream operates on an Expression of Interest (EOI) system. Candidates who meet the eligibility criteria must submit a profile to PEI’s pool of candidates. All of the candidates in the pool will then be ranked against each other based on the PEI Labour Impact Category Ranking System. The highest-ranking candidates will be invited to submit a complete application to the stream in one of the category’s periodic draws. Successful candidates will be issued a provincial nomination from PEI.
After receiving a provincial nomination, an applicant has six months to submit a federal application for Canadian permanent residence. Applicants in this program must complete and submit a paper-based application for permanent residence and submit it by mail to the appropriate application centre. Paper-based PNP applications for permanent residence are generally processed within 18 months.
If a candidate meets all of the eligibility requirements for this stream of PEI PNP, they may create a profile in the Expression of Interest system where they will be awarded up to 100 assessment points based on their age, language, education, work experience, employment, and adaptability.
