Province Launches WorkPEI Wesbite

The Province of PEI, through the Department of Workforce and Advanced Learning, has launched a new website designed to match job seekers with employers in Prince Edward Island.

Located at www.workpei.ca, the website provides job seekers, employers, students, newcomers and expats with information on employment assistance provided by the Province. The site also includes a new job board with advanced search features and a statistics section with key economic indicators for PEI.

Job seekers who register to become members of WorkPEI can also take advantage of enhanced job search tools, while registered employers can post jobs and manage applications through a private job dashboard.
