Alberta invites 294 Express Entry Candidates in Latest Selection Round
Nearly 300 Express Entry system candidates wanting to settle in Alberta received invitations to apply for a provincial nomination in the latest Alberta Express Entry selection draw. This minimum score was 400 though the minimum CRS score required has dropped to 300 on four occasions in the past year.
Alberta has now issued a total of 5,236 invitations to Express Entry candidates over the course of 23 draws this year. Alberta provides a pathway to permanent residence for eligible Express Entry candidates with strong ties to the province or who are working in an occupation that supports Alberta’s “economic development and diversification priorities,” among other factors. There is currently no list of eligible occupations available.
Express Entry candidates can only apply for a provincial nomination through the Alberta Express Entry Stream if they are invited to do so by the AINP.
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.
You may receive a Notification of Interest letter if you:
- Have an active Express Entry profile in the federal Express Entry pool
- Have stated an interest in immigrating permanently to Alberta
- Are working in an occupation that supports Alberta’s economic development and diversification, and
