About PEI Business Impact Category
The business impact category is designed keeping in mind foreign nationals who want to invest in or actively manage a business in PEI. PEI PNP Business Impact category comprises three sub-categories:
As the name suggests, this category is designed for foreign entrepreneurs who want to either
purchase an already existing PEI business or those who want to start their own firm in PEI. The business should be able to create revenue by selling goods or services at arm’s length to third parties.
This category is designed for foreign nationals who wish to buy a part of a business in PEI. The person should purchase atleast 1/3rd ofthe business’ equity or invest $1,000,000 in the equity of the business.
This stream is quite similar to the PEI PNP Partial Ownership Stream. The only difference being that the applicant (appropriate work permit is granted) can work in the PEI business they plan to invest in before deciding whether to invest or not. Using this category the applicant can move faster to PEI in terms of settlement and immigration. When the applicant meets the requirements and conditions of a performance agreement, he/she will then be nominated to apply for permanent residency.
To understand how the PEI Business Impact Category is similar/different from Canada’s Owner/Operators Category, see Canada To Terminate Special Temporary Foreign Worker Program Processing.
