When Express Entry Immigration is Not Possible, Prince Edward Island’s Business Immigration Entrepreneur Program Offers an Excellent Alternative


The province of Prince Edward Island (P.E.I.)’s provincial nomination program for entrepreneurs is an attractive option for experienced business owners and entrepreneurs who may not qualify under the Federal Skilled Worker program, or who have Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores too low to be selected by the federal government.

This program targets applicants who meet the following criteria:

  • Demonstrated experience as a business owner/operator, or high-level senior manager; • Intention to purchase an existing business or start a business in the province of Prince Edward Island; • Have a minimum verifiable personal net worth of CAD $600,000.00; • Must sign an escrow agreement with the province and submit a $200,000.00 deposit to the province, which is refunded upon meeting the terms of the agreement

Unlike many other provincial business immigration programs, applicants under the P.E.I. program can apply for permanent residence immediately rather than applying for a work permit to come to Canada initially.


Biometrics is a New Reality for Visa Applicants

Starting on July 31, 2018, many applicants from Europe, the Middle East, and Africa applying for a visitor visa, work/study permit, permanent resident status, or refugee or asylum status will be required to provide fingerprints and a photograph to Canadian Immigration as part of an expansion to its Biometrics Program. This expansion of the biometrics program in Canada is comparable to those in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand.
