What is the process to apply for the Alberta Express entry program?

Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) Express entry stream is an enhanced PNP category for Express Entry candidates to apply for Alberta PNP provincial nomination. Getting a nomination from Alberta is a very simple and easy process.

There are three streams under the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP):

  • Alberta Opportunity Stream
  • Alberta Express Entry Stream
  • Self-Employed Farmer Stream

After getting a nomination from the province in the latest Alberta draws, express entry candidates get 600 CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) points to their profile thus effectively guaranteeing an ITA in the next express entry draw.

 

What is the Alberta PNP selection process for Express entry candidates?

You can apply for Alberta PNP’s Express entry stream as a skilled worker after receiving a Notification of Interest (NOI) from the province. Candidates who meet the minimum criteria of AINP will be directly contacted by the province.

Candidates will only receive an NOI from Alberta if they:

  • Have an active Express Entry profile;
  • Must have the intention to live in the province permanently;
  • Must support in province’s economic development and diversification process;
  • Minimum CRS score of 300 points;

Alberta is likely to give invitations to candidates who have one or more adaptability factors. For that they must:

  • Have work experience in Alberta occupation in-demand or have a valid job offer from an eligible provincial employer;
  • Have graduated from the province’s educational institution and have a valid job-offer;
  • Have family members living in the province as a Canadian citizen or permanent resident;
