Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP): Alberta Express Entry Draw Issues 248 Invitations To Candidates With Minimum CRS Score of 300 to apply for a provincial nomination on Oct 26, 2021.
The latest draw is the sixth one in a row where the cutoff score was 300, which is the minimum needed to be eligible for the Alberta Express Entry Stream.
Since the invitation rounds resumed in January 2021, Alberta has invited 6,158 Express Entry applicants to apply for a provincial nomination. Express Entry candidates are invited to apply for a nomination certificate, which will support their permanent residency application.
Alberta Express Entry System
The Alberta Express Entry Stream allows Alberta to nominate a limited number of qualified candidates from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada’s Express Entry system.
Express Entry is the application management system for the three Federal High Skilled programs: Canadian Experience Class, Federal Skilled Worker Program, and Federal Skilled Trades Program.
This stream has 2 steps:
- Candidates with an Express Entry profile with the Government of Canada receive a Notification of Interest (NOI) letter from AINP in their Express Entry profile. Only candidates who receive an NOI letter may contact the AINP to advise they are interested in applying to this stream.
- The AINP invites these candidates to apply. Candidates determine if they meet assessment criteria and submit an application. Complete applications go into a pool of eligible applications for consideration for processing.
Alberta Express Entry Stream – Eligibility
In order to be eligible for the provincial nomination through the Alberta Express Entry stream, you need to have work experience in an eligible occupation. The AINP does not provide a list of eligible occupations, rather it offers a list of occupations that are not eligible for the stream. Many who apply under this stream work as food service supervisors, transport truck drivers, and cooks among others.
- Have an active Express Entry profile in the federal Express Entry pool.
- Have stated an interest in immigrating permanently to Alberta.
- Be working in an occupation that supports Alberta’s economic development and diversification.
- Many who apply under this stream work as food service supervisors, transport truck drivers, and cooks among others.
- Have a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System score of 300 points.
Factors that may improve a candidate’s chances of receiving notification of interest:
- A job offer from an Albertan employer and/or work experience in Alberta.
- Having graduated from a Canadian post-secondary institution.
- Having a relative that is living in Alberta: parent, child and/or sibling.
Factors that decrease a candidate’s chances of receiving notification of interest:
- The Express Entry profile expires within the next 3 months
- You work in an ineligible occupation
Information on draws will typically be posted approximately one month after the date of draw.
