Important Information for International Applicants
In order for the PEIIA to proceed with processing an application for membership in the Prince Edward Island Institute of Agrologists, all applicants must provide proof of residency in Prince Edward Island and proof of ability to work in Canada, if not a Canadian citizen. Applicants must provide official transcripts of all international post-secondary institutions attended. If official transcripts are not in English, you may be asked to provide a translated copy.
Applicants will be asked to provide an original copy of a course-by-course WES (World Education Services) assessment OR a specialized IQAS (International Qualifications Assessment Service) assessment of international degree(s) or diploma(s).
Applicants must complete the PEIIA membership application form. The non-refundable fee for processing international applicants is $125.00 CAD and must be paid at the time of application.
This process can take some time. It may be started in advance of your arrival on PEI, but cannot be completed until residency is established.
