Alberta invited 350 Express Entry applicants to apply for a provincial nomination in the second draw of the year. The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program invited applicants with a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of at least 346 to submit an application.
The invited applicants in the Alberta Express Entry stream might be qualified for a provincial nomination. If they are nominated, they would be one step on the way to obtaining permanent residency in Canada. Under the Provincial Nominee Program, provincial applicants may submit an application to the federal government for immigration to Canada (PNP).
The pool is placed at the top for applicants who obtain provincial nominations for Express Entry, and these candidates have a higher chance of receiving an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence.
In January, Alberta also unveiled its brand-new Accelerated Tech Pathway. Tech workers may request accelerated processing if they meet the criteria for the Alberta Express Entry stream.
What are the requirements and application procedure for Alberta Express Entry?
Instead of a list of professions that are eligible for the stream, the AINP offers a listing of professions that are not. Cooks, transport truck drivers, and food service managers are just a handful of the careers open to people who apply under this category.
To register for the Alberta Express Entry stream, the applicant must have experience working in one of the permitted professions.
Your possibilities of being recommended are increased if you have professional experience, a Canadian degree, or a job offer in Alberta. If you have relatives in Alberta, it is also advantageous.
It is obvious that you need to also satisfy the requirements for Express Entry eligibility. To be taken into consideration, applicants must have a CRS score of at least 300.
Steps for applying:
You should first register an Express Entry profile in order to use the Express Entry program to immigrate to Alberta. Express Entry serves as the application management system for the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, and the Canadian Experience Class.
If you are qualified for Express Entry, you will receive a score depending on the Comprehensive Ranking System. Your age, education, employment history, command of the English or French language, and other factors all contribute to your point total.
Use the Express Entry pathway to apply for immigration if you don’t want to file for a provincial nomination. However, Express Entry applicants with lower CRS scores can use the PNP to be awarded 600 points automatically.
The applicant can then submit an application for Canadian permanent residence after receiving an Invitation to Apply (ITA) from a later Express Entry draw.
