On October 12, 2021, the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program invited candidates directly from the Express Entry pool to apply for provincial nomination. The lowest ranking candidate had a CRS score of just 300.
Since the start of 2021, the Alberta Express Entry stream has issued 5,635 invitations. In 2020, AINP’s Express Entry stream invited just 1,785 candidates in total after Alberta paused these draws in the last half of the year as part of their Economic Recovery Plan.

Alberta does not release details on the additional criteria targeted in each Express Entry stream draw. However, they have stated that the following factors may increase a candidate’s chances:
