Canada’s Alberta has released the details of their second provincial draw held in May 2021 under the Provincial Nominee Program [PNP].
On May 18, 2021, Alberta PNP invited another 250 Canada immigration hopefuls to apply for being nominated by the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program [AINP] for their permanent residence in Canada.
AINP invitations, also referred to as Notification of Interest [NOI] letters, went out to candidates under the AINP Express Entry Stream.
|An Overview of May 18 AINP draw|
|Number of Invitations Issued||Ranking score of the lowest-ranked federal Express Entry candidate invited|
As the AINP Express Entry Stream is linked with the federal Express Entry system, the ranking of the candidate in the IRCC Express Entry pool is one of the criteria taken into consideration.
For the latest AINP draw held on May 18, 2021, the minimum score requirement – as per the Comprehensive Ranking System [CRS] score – was that of CRS 301.
In 2021, the CRS scores targeted by the AINP have been in the CRS 300 to 406 range. The January 8 AINP draw had the highest CRS requirement of CRS 406 so far in 2021.
The previous AINP draw, held on May 5, had the lowest CRS requirement of the year, that of CRS 300.
|The AINP’s Alberta Express Entry Stream allows the province of Alberta to nominate a specific number of qualified candidates from the Express Entry system of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada [IRCC].|
Those with strong ties to the province might be asked to submit an application to the AINP.
No direct applications are accepted for the Alberta Express Entry Stream.
A candidate cannot apply to the Stream unless they have received an NOI by the AINP in their IRCC Express Entry profile.
Those successful in receiving a PNP nomination – through any of the IRCC Express Entry linked PNP streams – have a higher chance of receiving an ITA from IRCC.
|With the latest draw, Alberta has invited a total of 1,909 to apply for an AINP nomination for Canada PR in the 10 AINP draws held so far in 2021.|
