Latest Alberta PNP draw – November 6
Alberta invites 148 Express Entry candidates with minimum CRS scores of 400 to apply for provincial nomination
The Canadian maritime province of Alberta invited 148 immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence in latest draw through its Express Entry-aligned immigrant nominee stream on November 6.
The candidates, who received Notification of Interest (NOI) Letters in the November 6 selection round, need to have a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 400 to receive an invitation, among other requirements.
AINP Express Entry stream
Express Entry candidates looking to settle in Alberta have been able to pursue a provincial nomination under the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) under the AINP Express Entry stream.
The Alberta Express Entry Stream allows the AINP to nominate a limited number of qualified federal Express Entry candidates who meet the stream’s eligibility requirements to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence.
Although a job offer or previous work experience in Alberta is not required to apply under Alberta Express Entry Stream, but the AINP says it may give priority to candidates with:
- a job offer and/or work experience in Alberta;
- a degree from a Canadian post-secondary institution and a valid job offer; or
- a parent, child or sibling already living in Alberta.
A provincial nomination is highly desirable by Express Entry candidates, as it’s the single most lucrative way to accumulate 600 additional CRS points. It effectively increase their chances to get an invitation to apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence in subsequent Express Entry draw.
Alberta’s Express Entry Stream draws often invites candidates with CRS scores that are much lower than those drawn through Federal Express Entry draws, which makes it one of the best Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) to apply for.
