New Provincial Attestation Letter (PAL) System for International Students in Prince Edward Island (PEI)

Updated: Apr 10

Prince Edward Island (PEI) has recently implemented new federal changes to the study permit process for international students. This initiative is part of Prince Edward Island's efforts to streamline the process and align with Canada's broader strategy for international student admissions.

It introduces a requirement for international students to obtain a PAL as part of their study permit application, confirming their acceptance within the set provincial or territorial quota. This change underscores the government's commitment to managing international student admissions while aligning with national immigration policies.


The Process:

Similar to British Columbia, Prince Edward Island requires international students to be accepted by a Designated Learning Institution (DLI) in the province. The DLI then obtains a necessary letter from the provincial government, confirming the student's acceptance within the allocated quota. This document is included in the student's study permit application.

Key Changes:

  • Requirement of Provincial Letter: Students need this letter for study permit applications, confirming their acceptance by a Prince Edward Island DLI within the allowed quota.

  • Role of DLIs: Prince Edward Island's DLIs are responsible for obtaining these letters based on their quotas.

  • Impact on Study Permit Applications: The new system directly affects the number of international students admitted by each institution, reflecting the federal strategy for managing admissions.


Prince Edward Island's adoption of this new system is crucial for international students looking to study in the province, aligning with broader national immigration policies. Staying informed about such changes is essential for students and educational institutions.
