Alberta invited Express Entry candidates with CRS scores as low as 302.

Alberta released the details of its June 29 draw.

The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) invited 148 Express Entry candidates with Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores of at least 302. These candidates may now apply for a provincial nomination through the Alberta Express Entry stream.

Compared to Alberta’s previous Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draw this month, this draw had fewer candidates and a slightly higher CRS requirement.

Alberta has now invited 2,432 Express Entry candidates to apply for a provincial nomination since it resumed invitation rounds in January 2021. It had taken a temporary hiatus in the latter months of 2020.
Alberta is allowed to issue 6,250 nomination certificates in 2021. Not everyone invited to apply will receive a provincial nomination. Some may not fill out the application, or they may not meet the eligibility criteria. In the same vein, not everyone who gets a nomination will become a Permanent Resident, although the vast majority do.

In order to be eligible for the provincial nomination through the Alberta Express Entry stream, you need to have work experience in an eligible occupation. The AINP does not provide a list of eligible occupations, rather it offers a list of occupations that are not eligible for the stream.

Many who apply under this stream work as food service supervisors, transport truck drivers, and cooks among others.

Your Express Entry profile should indicate that you have an interest in moving to Alberta. Certain factors increase your likelihood of being nominated, like having work experience, or a job offer in Alberta.

A Canadian education also helps. It also helps your application if you have a parent, child, or sibling who is a permanent resident or citizen in Alberta.

The point of this PNP is to support the province’s economic development and diversification priorities.
