Alberta Draw Requires CRS Score Of At Least 300
The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program AINP released details of the March 18 draw, where 136 candidates were invited to apply through the Alberta Express Entry Stream for Canadian permanent residence.
Invited candidates had profiles in the federal Express Entry pool and required a Comprehensive Ranking System score of at least 300.
Express Entry candidates need to be working in an occupation that supports Alberta’s “economic development and diversification priorities” in order to be eligible for an invitation through the Albert Express Entry Stream.
The AINP does not provide a list of eligible occupations.
While it is not necessary to have a job offer to be eligible for this stream, the AINP says it may give priority to candidates who meet the following three criteria:
- 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 the province.
So far this year, Alberta has issued 887 invitations to Express Entry candidates. In 2019, Alberta issued a total of 11,137 invitations through the Alberta Express Entry Stream.
