Canada PR Through Latest Alberta PNP Draws
The federal Express Entry system is an application management database to streamline federal immigration programs to issue Canadian permanent residency. It manages applicants under three federal programs – the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), the Canadian Experience Class (CEC), and the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP).
Additionally, most PNPs have a dedicated stream to select desirable candidates for provincial nominations directly from the federal Express Entry pool.
The province is attracting Chemical Engineers, Metallurgical & Material Engineers, and Petroleum Engineers for Canada PR through the latest Alberta PNP draws.
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 an additional 600 CRS points added to their overall score.
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 degree of scores will help the government determine a prospective immigrant to succeed in Canada’s labor market.
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 latest Express Entry draws targeted 589 candidates with prior provincial nominations to apply for Canadian permanent residency.
