In the January 18 draw, Alberta invited candidates with CRS scores as low as 346.  A total of 350 invitations were issued to Express Entry profiles in Alberta’s most recent draw.

Who is eligible for Alberta’s Express Entry stream?

To be considered under Alberta’s Express Entry stream, candidates must have an active profile in the federal Express Entry pool with a CRS score of at least 300, and a stated interest in immigrating permanently to Alberta. The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program 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:

  • A qualifying relative that is a permanent resident or citizen living in Alberta;
  • A job offer or work experience in Alberta; and
  • A completed credential from a Canadian post-secondary institution

How to immigrate through the Alberta Express Entry PNP stream

Foreign nationals interested in immigrating to the province of Alberta through the AINP Express Entry stream must first create an Express Entry profile. To submit an Express Entry profile, candidates must be eligible for one of three Federal High Skilled Worker (FHS) programs:

Candidates in the Express Entry pool are assigned a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. The CRS score is based on factors such as age, work experience, education, language ability in French or English, and connections to Canada.

Individuals successfully nominated by Alberta under a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) will receive an additional 600 points toward their CRS score. These additional points essentially guarantee an Invitation to Apply in a PNP-specific Express Entry draw.
