Living in PEI

Prince Edward Island (PEI) is an amazing place to live and work. This section will guide you through the process of living in PEI. Citizenship and Immigration Canada, the PEI provincial government, and local settlement service providers have created a number of resources and services to help you settle in PEI.

There are two primary settlement service providers in PEI to help you once you move to PEI. The PEI Association for Newcomers to Canada has offices located in Charlottetown and Summerside with a variety of programs, services and online resources. The Guide for Newcomers to PEI will assist you to learn what to do when you first arrive, how to obtain essential Canadian documents, and other information that will help you settle in PEI.

The Guide for Newcomers to PEI offers valuable information to anyone new to PEI and to those who have moved back to PEI.La Coopérative d’intégration francophone de l'Î.-P.-É. (CIF) se trouve dans la communauté de Wellington dans la région ouest de l'Île-du-Prince-Édouard, mais offre des services partout dans la province.
