PEI Labour Impact Category

The main focus of the Labour Impact Category is on the strong labour market needs of Prince Edward Island’s innovative and agricultural industries. Despite the fact that Prince Edward Island has a relatively small labour force and many seasonal industries, labour market gaps do occur, and it can be challenging for some businesses in Prince Edward Island to locate new employees in Canada with the required skills.

The Labour Impact Category provides an opportunity for potential new workers from outside Canada and Prince Edward Island businesses who have the necessary skill set to immigrate, work, and settle in Prince Edward Island.

An applicant may select one of three categories under the Labour Impact Category (LIC):

  • Skilled Worker Stream
  • Critical Worker Stream
  • International Graduate Stream
