To be eligible under the Express Entry stream of Alberta, the candidate does not need a job offer or previous work experience in the province. But the candidates must demonstrate strong ties to the province and work experience in an occupation that supports the economic development and diversification priorities of the province. However, Alberta does not have an in-demand occupations list.

In the Alberta Express Entry stream draw, candidates with the following advantages are given preference:

  • A job offer and/or work experience in Alberta
  • A degree from a Canadian post-secondary institution
  • A valid job offer from an Alberta employer

AINP has conducted 17 Express Entry stream draws so far this year in which a total of 3996 candidates have been invited to apply for provincial nomination. The highest minimum CRS cut-off score in all these draws was 425. But this year, Alberta has invited candidates with CRS score as low as 300 to apply for nomination from the province. In three AINP Express Entry stream draws, the minimum CRS score was 301 while in another one, the minimum CRS score required was 302.
