Alberta Express Entry Stream

Route 1 of 2

In late 2017, Alberta announced its Provincial Nomination Program Routes, the criteria for which were released on 14th June, 2018.

The Alberts PNP routes introduced were:

1. Alberta Express Entry: Candidates with active profiles in the Federal Express Entry system
2. Alberta Opportunity streams: Candidates who are working in Alberta at the time of Application

In this article, we will take a look at the Alberta Express Entry Route for Alberta PNP 2019.


The Alberta Express Entry stream is aligned with the federal Express Entry system. In order to be considered for the Alberta PNP stream, a candidate must already have an active profile in one of the three Express Entry aligned programs: Federal Skilled Worker, Federal Skilled Trades, or Canadian Experience Class.

Alberta will automatically consider profiles in the federal Express Entry pool. Alberta Immigration Nominee Program (AINP) will directly contact candidates whose profiles are of interest and will invite them to apply for the AINP Express Entry stream. While the exact selection criteria are unknown, AINP states that it will seek candidates who demonstrate strong ties to Alberta and who can support regional economic development and diversification.

It should be noted that in order to be considered by AINP, candidates must indicate Alberta as a province of interest in their Express Entry profile.

Once a candidate is notified by AINP, they may submit an official PNP application to the province. If this application is approved, the candidate will receive a provincial nomination, resulting in a 600 point increase to their Express Entry CRS score. This means that the candidate will be virtually guaranteed an official Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence in the next Express Entry Draw.
