New invitations to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence from the province of Alberta focused on immigration applicants with a profile in Canada’s Express Entry scheme. September 12, 2019: Alberta announced on August 28 the results of the Alberta Express Entry draw. Alberta also announced that 4,115 nomination certificates have been issued in 2019 so far.
Nearly 300 Express Entry system candidates wanting to settle in Alberta received invitations to apply for a provincial nomination in the latest Alberta Express Entry selection draw.
The 294 candidates selected needed a minimum 400 points under Express Entry’s Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) in order to receive an invitation.
This minimum score was 38 points lower than the lowest score drawn through a federal Express Entry invitation round in 2019, which was 438 on January 30.
For the 2019 calendar year, the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) may issue up to 6,000 nominations. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) establishes this boundary. Approximately 1,640 applications are awaiting eligibility evaluation.
To obtain an invitation, the 294 applicants chosen required a minimum of 400 points under the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) of Express Entry. This minimum score was 38 points below the smallest score drawn in the 2019 invitation round of a federal Express Entry, which was 438 on January 30.
This was August’s second draw through its Alberta Express Entry Stream, allowing the province to search for applicants who fulfill the eligibility criteria of the stream for the federal Express Entry scheme.
On August 15, a previous draw released 121 invitations to applicants with CRS scores of Express Entry as low as 400. “If you have a score that’s below those being drawn through Express Entry, there are still many other potential opportunities,”
To qualify for the Alberta Express Entry Stream, no job offer or prior work experience in Alberta is needed. Nevertheless, candidates should work in an occupation that promotes the economic development and diversification goals of the province. A list of qualified occupations is not provided by the province.

Express Entry applicants whose request is approved and who are invited to apply for a provincial nomination receive an extra 600 CRS points. These extra points move the recipient to the top of the Express Entry pool and efficiently ensure an invitation to apply for permanent Canadian residence in a subsequent Express Entry draw, typically once every two weeks.
Information on draws will typically be posted approximately one month after the date of draw.
