2 new Canada PR pathways have been launched by the Alberta province in Canada. These include the Alberta Express Entry aligned stream and Alberta Opportunity Stream.
Alberta will now be able to offer Provincial Nomination to the federal Express Entry pool candidates. This is because it now has a dedicated stream in the Express Entry, as quoted by the CIC News.
Immigrant Nominee Program Alberta has made this announcement for launching the 2 fresh immigration streams that offer Canada PR pathways. It has said that the Express Entry stream will be offering invites to applicants who offer proof of strong ties to the province. These must also be able to assist with the diversification and economic development priorities of the government.
The Express Entry candidates who receive a nomination from a province will be offered priority for Canada PR ITA – Invitation to Apply. This is because the nomination will add 600 points to their CRS scores.
Eligible candidates who have their Express Entry profiles will be chosen directly by the Immigrant Nominee Program Alberta.
Alberta Opportunity Stream is the second new immigration stream launched by the Alberta Province. It has started accepting applications from 14 June 2018. It will also accept the applications for Self-Employed Farmer Stream from this date.
AOS functions separately from the Express Entry. It offers Canada PR pathway to applicants who are employed in the Alberta Province. Candidates can apply under this stream without having to need support from the employer.
Strategic Recruitment Stream and Employer – Driven Stream of Alberta has now been replaced by the AOS. These 2 streams are now closed with effect from 14 June 2018. AINP has said that applications that have been submitted under these 2 streams prior to 14 June will be accepted and processed.
