Alberta PNP: Another 200 receive invitations to apply

By Editor
Updated May 10 2023

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.

On April 6, 2021, a total of 200 invitations to apply – also referred to as Notification of Interest [NOI] Letters – have been issued by the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program [AINP]. The invitations were issued to candidates under the Alberta Express Entry Stream.

Under the Alberta Express Entry Stream, Alberta PNP regularly reviews the candidates available in the federal Express Entry system.

As per the profile information in the portal, the AINP selects candidates, inviting them to submit their completed application to the AINP.

To be considered by the AINP for the Alberta Express Entry Stream, the candidate must –

  • Have an active profile in the Express Entry system of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada [IRCC],
  • Meet the criteria of any 1 of the 3 economic immigration programs managed through the Express Entry system – the Federal Skilled Trades Program [FSTP], the Federal Skilled Worker Program [FSWP], or the Canadian Experience Class [CEC],
  • Have the intention as well as the ability for living and working in Alberta,
  • Be working in an occupation supporting the diversification and economic employment of Alberta, and
  • Have a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System [CRS] score of 300.

The CRS determines the ranking of profiles in the IRCC Express Entry system. Generally, it is the highest-ranked profiles that are invited in the federal and provincial draws that are held from time to time.

The latest Alberta PNP draw had a minimum CRS 302 requirement.

A PNP nomination in itself fetches an Express Entry candidate 600 CRS points, thereby guaranteeing that they would be invited to apply for Canadian permanent residence in the next federal draw to be held.

Certain “adaptability factors” – such as an Alberta job offer or prior work experience in the province – might increase the likelihood of an individual being assessed or nominated by the AINP.

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.
