The Skilled Workers in PEI is a program that has been put in place for the employers working in this region. For this reason, we consider it to be an employer-driven program and those people can apply for this provinces’ nomination who are already working with an employer based in Prince Edward Island. This stream for permanent residency allows a lot of employers to fill their vacant positions in the province of Prince Edward Island which could not be filled up by the local job market.
