Alberta holds first draw since June 2020

Alberta invited eligible candidates with Express Entry profiles to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence in the province‚Äôs latest Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draw on January 8.

The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) issued 50 invitations to candidates who may be eligible through the Alberta Express Entry Stream.

Invited candidates must have a valid Express Entry profile with a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) requirement of at least 406.

Express Entry is the system that the federal Canadian government uses to manage permanent residence applications for the three federal immigration streams:

  • Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
  • Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP); and
  • Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

In order to be in the Express Entry pool, candidates need to qualify for one of these immigration streams. They are assessed based on multiple factors such as their age, education, work experience and language ability and are ranked according to the CRS.
