  • Prince Edward Island Makes Immigrants Feel Welcomed

    The opportunity to work in Canada, the friendliness shown to newcomers and the high-quality lifestyle are some of the reasons that many immigrants are moving to Prince Edward Island (PEI).

    Canada’s smallest province is located in the country’s Atlantic region, above Nova Scotia and east of New Brunswick.

    The population of PEI is approximately 157,000 and the provincial capital and largest city is Charlottetown, which has around 37,000 residents.

    Prince Edward Island is a beautiful place to live in Canada, boasting beautiful beaches, rolling hills and more than 30 golf courses.

    An ongoing shortage of workers also makes PEI a good location for immigrants to find work in Canada.

    Between 2018 and 2019, Canadian immigration to PEI increased by 7.8 percent, with 2,267 immigrants moving to the province in the 12-month period.

    During the last few years, India has been the #1 country of origin for immigrants settling in PEI, replacing Chinese who now account for the second largest group of foreign-born residents.

    This mirrors a national trend for immigration to Canada, in which individuals from India currently account for 25% of new Canadian permanent residents.

    For example, around 74,455 people from India were approved for Canadian immigration in 2019.

    Many people who immigrate to Canada and settle in PEI report receiving a warm welcome and plenty of support from the local residents as well as the provincial government.

    If you would like to immigrate to Canada and live in a welcoming community with great job opportunities, whether a small province such as Prince Edward Island or a larger location like Ontario, there are several Canadian immigration programs available.

    You and your family could be among the 341,000 immigrants who will be granted Canadian permanent residency during 2020, if you meet all of the eligibility requirements and complete the Canadian immigration procedure successfully.
