A new Canada PR visa pathway will be launched by Alberta through the Express entry stream in 2018 January. This will permit the province to utilize its share of nomination candidates in the Express entry poll of the IRCC. This will be new Canada PR visa pathway through the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program.
By launching the new Canada PR visa pathway Alberta is finally joining the rest of provinces in Canada to have minimum one PNP Stream aligned with the Express entry. 600 extra CRS points and ITA to apply for Canada PR is offered to the candidates who receive a nomination from a province. The nomination must be from a stream aligned with the Express entry. The single most valuable factor under CRS is the enhanced nomination from a Canadian province, as quoted by the CIC News.
A target of 54,000 new permanent residents through the PNPs has been set under the 2017 Immigration levels plan for Canada. Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program is authorized to offer 5, 500 nomination certificates for 2017.
It is expected that there will be scope for increased settlements through the PNPs when the Canadian government announces the immigration levels plan for 2018. It will also be applicable to Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program. Alberta s yet to reveal the number of nominations that will be offered through its immigration stream aligned with the Express entry.
Christina Gray the Labor Minister said that immigrant workers are a valuable part of the workforce.
By launching the new Canada PR visa pathway Alberta will simplify the process. It will decrease the wait times for visa applications. The application for PR will also become fairer for applicants across diverse sectors added Gray.
