The Alberta province in Canada has invited 197 candidates in Express Entry with CRS scores as low as 301 to apply for Canada PR. This is through a nomination from the province.
The draw was held through the stream Alberta Express Entry on 15th May. AINP – Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program announced the details of this draw this week.
The AINP forms a part of the Provincial Nominee Program – PNPs in Canada. It permits participating territories and provinces to select candidates for economic immigration. They must fulfil the labour market needs locally, as quoted by the CIC News.
The Alberta Express Entry Stream was launched in 2018. It permits the AINP to seek candidates in the federal Express Entry system. These must fulfil its distinct eligibility criteria.
The Express Entry system administers the applicants’ pool for 3 main economic immigration streams in Canada:
• Canadian Experience Class
• Federal Skilled Trades Class
• Federal Skilled Worker Class
Qualified candidates from these 3 streams are assigned a pool and score as per the Comprehensive Ranking System. The candidates with highest rank are offered Invitations to Apply for Canada PR through draws that are held frequently from the pool.
Candidates in Express Entry who receive a nomination from a province get 600 extra CRS points. This ensures that they get an ITA for Canada PR from the Government of Canada.
So far in 2019 AINP has offered Canada PR ITAs to 3, 554 candidates in the Express Entry pool. This is through the stream Alberta Express Entry.
Applicants in Express Entry must have minimum CRS score of 300 to qualify for the stream Alberta Express Entry. They must be having a job that supports diversification priorities and economic development of Alberta amongst other requirements. This is for being considered for an ITA from the AINP.
