Invitations issued by Alberta PNP are also referred to as Notification of Interest [NOI] letters.
A part of Canada’s Provincial Nominee Program [PNP], Alberta PNP has an immigration pathway linked with the federal Express Entry system managed by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada [IRCC].
Under Alberta Express Entry Stream selections, the AINP goes through the pool of available candidates with IRCC Express Entry, selecting and inviting candidates based on the profile information submitted by them on the portal.
The previous Alberta PNP draw was held on September 21, 2021.
|An Overview of September 30 AINP draw|
|Category||Number of Invitations Issued||Ranking score of the lowest-ranked federal Express Entry candidate invited|
|Alberta Express Entry Stream||275||CRS 300|
As the Alberta Express Entry Stream is aligned with IRCC Express Entry, the ranking of the candidate as per the 1,200- point Comprehensive Ranking System [CRS] has a role to play.
All the 4 AINP draws held in September 2021 has a CRS 300 requirement.
As a PNP nomination is worth 600 CRS points in itself, those successful in securing a nomination are thereby guaranteed an invitation to apply by IRCC in a subsequent federal draw.
For 2021, Alberta has received an annual allocation of 6,250 nomination certificates from IRCC.
As on October 12, 2021, the AINP had issued 4,686 nomination certificates so far in 2021.
Proving that the individual is a nominee, the nomination certificate is required for submitting an application to IRCC, which is the second part of the process for Canada PR through Canadian PNP.
|With the latest AINP draw, a total of 5,617 NOIs have been issued by Alberta PNP in the 22 draws held by the province so far in 2021.|
