AINP Invited 191 Express Entry Candidates

CRS falls to 300 in latest AINP draw

The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program AINP invited 191 Express Entry candidates to apply for a provincial nomination for permanent residence. Candidates only needed a Comprehensive Ranking System CRS score of 300 in order to receive a Notification of Interest NOI from Alberta.

Eligibility Criteria:
The first step to immigrate to Canada through the Alberta Express Entry Stream is to create a profile in the federal Express Entry system. Candidates need to have work experience in an eligible occupation that supports the province’s economic development and diversification priorities. The AINP does not provide a list of eligible occupations, rather they provide a list of occupations that they will not consider.

With special corona virus measures in place, the AINP now requires candidates to meet the following criteria in order to receive a nomination:

  1. be currently working in Alberta, even if they are working from home;
  2. have a work permit authorizing them to work in their current job;
  3. have a job that is full-time, paid, meet the provincial minimum wage, exceed Labour Market Impact Assessment requirements; and they must work in an eligible occupation.

So far this year, Alberta has issued 1,598 invitations to Express Entry candidates. In 2019, the Albert Express Entry Stream rendered 6,884 invitations.
