Alberta PNP invites 200 Express Entry candidates

Alberta PNP invites 200 Express Entry candidates

Alberta has one of the most robust provincial economies in Canada, attracting newcomers from all over the country and the world. It is well-known for its fossil fuels, agriculture, forestry, education, tourism, and hospitality, as well as its manufacturing industry, which employs thousands of people in Canada.

The Alberta Advantage Immigration Program (AAIP), formerly known as the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP), has become one of Canada's most popular immigrant recruitment programmes, offering Canadian permanent residency to skilled foreign workers and entrepreneurs, as a result of a strong economy, the number of temporary foreign workers in the province, and the increased tightening of federal immigration programmes.

The AINP (Alberta PNP) also has a fast-track application process, with its new online portal which has decreased processing times to as little as 4 to 6 months.

In order to be considered for a provincial nomination in 2021, Alberta has invited 6,359 Express Entry candidates to apply. On November 9, Alberta sent an invitation to 200 Express Entry candidates to file for a provincial nomination.

Candidates with an Express Entry score of at least 343 were asked to apply for the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP). The most recent draw is the first of many with a cutoff score higher than 300, the minimum required for the Alberta Express Entry Stream.

Since resuming invitation rounds in January 2021, Alberta has invited 6,359 Express Entry candidates to seek a provincial nomination. In the latter months of 2020, the province went on a brief hiatus.

Candidates in the Express Entry pool are invited to apply for a Certificate of nomination by the Province of Alberta through regular draws, the receipt of which will greatly support their application for permanent residence.

Alberta is permitted to issue 6,250 nomination certificates this year. The province may have concluded sending invitations for the current year since the number of invitations issued has now exceeded the number of certificates of nomination that can be provided.

What is the Alberta Express Entry Stream and how does it work?

The Alberta Express Entry programme is a more advanced version of the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). It enables the provincial government to scan the federal government's Express Entry pool of candidates for candidates who might be eligible for a provincial nomination.

The Canadian Experience Class, the Federal Skilled Worker Program, and the Federal Skilled Trades Program all use Express Entry as their application management system.

You will be given a score based on the Comprehensive Ranking System if you are eligible for Express Entry (CRS). You earn points based on your age, education, work experience, English or French language proficiency, and other things.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (I), Canada's immigration department, holds Express Entry drawings on a regular basis, inviting the top-scoring individuals to apply for permanent residency.

It is possible to immigrate without a provincial nomination through the Express Entry system; however, persons with lower CRS scores may choose to apply for a PNP. Provincial nominees receive an automatic 600-point boost to their overall score.

If the lowest-scoring candidates in the new Alberta draw are nominated, their new CRS scores will be 900, which is more than enough to be invited to a provincial election.

Eligibility for the Alberta Express Entry Stream

You must have work experience in a relevant occupation to be eligible for a provincial nomination under the Alberta Express Entry stream.

The AINP does not provide a list of occupations that are eligible for the stream; instead, it provides a list of occupations that are not. Food service supervisors, transport truck drivers, and cooks are among the jobs available to those who apply under this stream.

Work experience, a Canadian education, or a job offer in Alberta are all criteria that boost your chances of getting nominated. It also helps if you have a family member, such as a parent, kid, or sibling, who lives in Alberta.

The AINP continues to accept and examine applications and Expressions of Interest notwithstanding temporary adjustments to some application and assessment processes (EOIs). On a monthly basis, the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) works with Immigration, College of Immigration and Citizenship Consultants (CICC) to analyze and improve their processes and standards.

Due to government social distancing regulations, new and current candidates may be qualified for nomination if they operate in an area that is not allocated for commercial or industrial usage.

The applicant is still employed by their company and performs some of the job tasks or types of work listed in their job description, they may be qualified for candidacy if they can show that they will resume their usual duties during the nomination period.

After making an application to the AINP, candidates who have lost their jobs or are no longer able to meet employment standards have up to 6 months (180 days) from the time their application is examined to find work that meets AINP eligibility requirements.

Eligible candidates are those who have been unable to renew their work permit due to COVID-19. Candidates must meet the minimum qualifications for employment at the time of application.

You may have a better chance of being assessed or nominated for the programme if you have one or more of the links indicated below:

- You have a job offer from Alberta and/or work experience in the province; 

- You have a parent, child, brother or sister who is a permanent resident of Alberta, or a Canadian citizen living in Alberta;

- You are a graduate of a Canadian post-secondary institution; or

- Your first language is French.

The job offer must be made in good faith and signed by your Alberta employer, and it must include the following:

- continuous, paid job 

- full-time labour, defined as a minimum of 30 hours per week 

- 12 months or more of employment 

- pay and benefits that reach or exceed the provincial minimum wage

- work at an Alberta location

Furthermore, if you are or will be working at a home-based business in Alberta, your employer must have the authority to operate the business from a personal residence.

Alberta's mechanism for gaining a nomination for Canada PR and then the PR itself is one of the most straightforward in Canada. Candidates with CRS scores as low as 300 are accepted into the AINP's Express Entry aligned Stream. 

As a result, if your CRS point score is low, you can apply for permanent residency in Canada under the Alberta Provincial Nomination Program.

If you apply in the Alberta-Express Entry Stream and receive a provincial nomination, you will be entitled to an additional 600 CRS points in Express Entry, which will assist you in receiving a Canada PR invitation from CICC.
