Once the applicant signs the performance agreement, the government of PEI will issue a letter of support to the Canadian government allowing the applicant to apply for a work permit. This letter will only be issued if the performance agreement is signed and the business plan and settlement plan are approved. If the applicant meets all relevant criteria, a work permit will be issued on behalf of the applicant. Once the applicant receives the work permit, he/she will be required to take an active role in the operation and management.

If all immigration requirements are met, the applicant and accompanying dependants will be granted Canadian permanent residence. Once the permanent residence visa is activated, the applicant will be able to start living in PEI.
