Alberta Nominates 148 Express Entry Candidates With CRS 300 for Canada PR


The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) held an Express Entry nomination draw on July 27, keeping the spirits of welcoming foreign immigration high.

PNP News

The provincial program extended 148 invitations to apply (ITA) for a provincial nomination. All these invitations were issued to candidates having an active Express Entry profile. They are now one step closer to applying for permanent residence (PR) in Canada.

The federal Express Entry system is an application management database to streamline federal immigration programs that offers direct permanent residency to foreign applicants. It manages applicants under three federal programs – the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), and the Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

CanApprove has observed several Canadian immigration aspirants apply for study in Canada and gain work experience through Post Graduate Work Permit (PGWP). After gaining full-time work experience of at least one year in Canada, they qualify under CEC for Canada PR.

Alternatively, immigration aspirants look to receive provincial nominations based on their education and work credentials obtained in Canada.

All the registered profiles receive a score based on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). Candidates get points for factors including their age, education, work experience, language ability in English or French, and others. The varying scores will help the government determine a prospective immigrant to succeed in Canada’s labour market.

There are two significant advantages of receiving a provincial nomination under AlNP:

  • Qualifying CRS score remains as low as 300, unlike any other provincial draws,
  • Those who receive the provincial nomination will automatically get 600 CRS points added to their overall score.

It means that candidates are effectively guaranteed an invitation to apply for permanent residence in the upcoming federal Express Entry draw. As a matter of fact, the previous Express Entry draw targeted 512 candidates with prior provincial nominations to apply for permanent residency.

CanApprove recommends entering the federal Express Entry pool as quickly as possible while preparing to qualify for provincial nominations to secure permanent residency.

Direct Immigration to Canada Through AINP Express Entry Stream

Issuing a permanent residency certificate is the exclusive domain of the federal government.

However, provincial governments provide an alternate pathway for obtaining Canada PR through Canada PNP; one particular case is Alberta Express Entry Stream.

Alberta Express Entry stream is classified as enhanced PNP under the AINP. It is exclusively for Express Entry candidates who had already submitted their Expression of Interest (EOI) to Alberta.

Major requirements to receive provincial nominations under this stream include strong ties to Alberta. It includes family ties or graduation from any University or College in Alberta or those who can support the government’s economic development and diversification priorities.

Candidates are also required to have adequate work experience in an eligible occupation. The AINP only provides a list of occupations that are ineligible for the stream’s requirements.
