Immigration to Prince Edward Island for workers with intermediate experience
Professionals who have found work in the province in an intermediate skilled occupation can immigrate through the Intermediate Experience stream.
The Intermediate Experience stream of the Prince Edward Island provincial program allows those professionals who have worked in Canada and found an employer in the province to obtain a permanent residency.
To be eligible to apply for the Intermediate Experience stream, you must meet the following requirements:
