Successful applicants can obtain General Registration without conditions or restrictions.

Choose to live in a place that offers universally funded healthcare, safe communities, and a short commute. Prince Edward Island (PEI) is Canada's smallest province with a renowned reputation for arts, culture, and innovation. PEI boasts more than 600 miles of shoreline, with over a hundred popular beaches, acres of gentle farmland, National and Provincial parks, and an island-wide trail system. Individuals and families from 90 different cultures have chosen to call this island 'home'.
