The province of Alberta in Canada has held its latest round of invitations under the Provincial Nominee Program [PNP]. Details of the latest provincial draw have been released by Alberta.

With the latest AINP draw, a total of 1,209 have been invited by Alberta in the 7 draws held so far in 2021.
The AINP allocation for 2021 has not been revealed as yet.
