Prince Edward Island

Hello, everyone! My family and I are going to immigrate to Canada by the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program.  We prefer to live in small provinces like PEI than big cities like Toronto. It is the most beautiful place I've ever seen. And of course, islanders will agree with me  :)

But the question is how to find a designated employer? And is there any way to find an employer?

Thanks for any responses. :)

Hi AmyElias, and welcome to Canada,

The best you can do is to get in touch with the PEI Association for Newcomers to Canada (PEIANC),  their mission is to provide short-term settlement services, and long-term inclusion and community integration programs in Prince Edward Island for all newcomers.

Try to explain your family situation, and prepare precise questions and request all kind of suggestions.

Perhaps through them you could ask for contact of people who are in your field of work for example, or with school for your kids (if you have), or anything you feel important to you.

Here is the contact information:

PEI Association for Newcomers to Canada
49 Water Street
Charlottetown, PE C1A 1A3
Phone: 902-628-6009
Fax: 902-894-4928

Don't forget to get back to us with what you would find.

We wish you good luck and again welcome.

Hi, I have also considered moving to Nova Scotia & have heard of but not yet witnessed the pristine beauty of PEI. I'm single with no children, mature, & not yet retired so any information that you can share is most appreciated. I have a teaching credential for secondary education lifetime, clear. Also have experience in telephone fundraising work, gardening, have traveled extensively etc. Love meeting new people so If we end up in the same area we'll be friends for sure. Be Well!

Hello! Where are you from?  :)

Thank you very much!

I was thinking of moving to Alberta. But after hearing that PEI and Nova Scotia are less unspoilt than as I have changed my mind an may try being admitted into one of those two lovely places.  :heart:
I'd be glad to know more on how to be accepted there!

Any news AmyElias?

How your search going on?

For Victoriahere9come and Khasnaw.rahmani, I suggest to check the same link I gave earlier :

General Inquiries
Office of Immigration: 94 Euston Street, 2nd Floor, PO Box 1176, Charlottetown, PE C1A 7M8
Phone: (902) 620-3628
Fax: (902) 368-5886

Perhaps this document could be also helpful so I encourage you to read it:

The Labour Application Guide … uide_0.pdf

Good luck everybody !

Hi! Unfortunately, they could not provide me with the information about designated employers.

Indeed they don't and it's normal.

Somehow it's in order to avoid that employers would receive a huge number of solicitation and to keep the process lighter.

So far, Newfoundland and Labrador is the only participating province ( of the 4 Atlantic)  that provides a list of its designated employers, which is listed in this link: … gs.NpWbQ=8

Hope that helps.

Thank you for that, Abdel!

Have a nice weekend  ;)

How can I know if the designated employers need to hire a particular profession? Say Auditors

Hello Crystalfreather, welcome !

This is quite an old thread.

I suggest that you open a new thread on the Canada forum and provide some details for example : where in Canada do you want to move back ?

All the best
