Alberta is one of the three Prairie Provinces in Canada. It’s one of the fastest growing Canadian provinces with huge opportunities for personal and professional growth. Alberta PNP is the most popular immigration program run by the government of Alberta to invite foreign skilled workers with the skills needed in the provincial labor market.

The Alberta Provincial Nominee Program accepts immigration applications under the following streams:

• The Alberta Opportunity Stream

• The Express Entry System

The province also runs three business immigration programs, which include:

• The Self-Employed Farmer Stream,

• The International Graduate Entrepreneur Immigration Stream, and

• The Foreign Graduate Start-Up Visa Stream.

As an economic migration program, the AINP nominates foreign skilled workers who are capable of meeting the economic and demographic needs of the province. The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program offers permanent resident Canada to individuals who wish to live and work in Alberta. It also grants residency to foreign entrepreneurs interested in establishing a business in the province.

Each stream has different eligibility criteria to select candidates for immigration.

Streams for skilled workers

Alberta Opportunity Stream- the stream is created for temporary foreign workers already living and working in Alberta and have a full-time job offer from an employer in Alberta. Candidates must obtain a positive Labor Market Impact Assessment to apply for this stream.

Additionally, they must also meet other eligibility requirements, such as residency, work permit, language skills, occupation, and work experience.

Alberta Express Entry Stream- with this stream, the government of Alberta nominates qualified immigration candidates to immigrate to Alberta. For this, applicants must create a valid Express Entry profile with the government of Canada and receive a notification of interest letter from AINP in the express entry pool.

In-demand occupations

Unlike other Canadian provinces that publish a list of in-demand occupations, Alberta publishes a list of ineligible occupations.

AINP Draws

The province of Alberta issues notifications of interests in periodic draws, wherein it invites applicants to apply for a provincial nomination under the AINP express entry stream.

The details of these draws are published a month after the draw date.
