International Graduate Stream

You can apply for a nomination for permanent residency through the International Graduate stream of PEI PNP, if you graduated from a publicly-funded PEI post-secondary institution. The International Graduate stream is employer-driven, allowing Island employers to fill positions that they are unable to fill through the local job market.
