Meeting the criteria listed below does not guarantee a nomination or permanent residence.
As a candidate, you must:
The Alberta Express Entry stream is aligned with the federal Express Entry system. In order to be considered for the PNP stream, a candidate must already have an active profile in one of the three Express Entry aligned programs: Federal Skilled Worker, Federal Skilled Trades, or Canadian Experience Class.
Alberta will automatically consider profiles in the federal Express Entry pool. AINP will directly contact candidates whose profiles are of interest and will invite these candidates to apply for the AINP Express Entry stream. While the exact selection criteria is unknown, AINP states that it will seek candidates who demonstrate strong ties to Alberta and who can support regional economic development and diversification.
It should be noted that in order to be considered by AINP, candidates must indicate Alberta as a province of interest in their Express Entry profile.
Once a candidate is notified by AINP, they may submit an official PNP application to the province. If this application is approved, the candidate will receive a provincial nomination, resulting in a 600 point increase to their Express Entry CRS score. This means that the candidate will be virtually guaranteed an official Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence in the next Express Entry draw.
