Alberta latest PNP draw set CRS score cut-off at 300

Alberta held a new provincial draw on June 5, inviting 191 Express Entry candidates to apply for a provincial nomination.

The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) released details of its last draw on June 8. Invited applicants may be eligible for the Alberta Express Entry stream.

To be invited, applicants had to have a profile in the Express Entry System with a score of at least 300. The last provincial draw held on May 18, had the higher score requirement by a single point at 301.

A total of 2,100 express entry candidates have been invited since Alberta resumed their invitations round in Jan 2021 after a temporary hiatus due to coronavirus.

Alberta is authorized to issue 6,250 nomination certificates in 2021. Not all people invited to apply will receive a nomination, and not all people who are nominated will receive permanent residence.

In theory, if Alberta makes about 692 appointments per month for the remainder of the year, the government will meet this target. The province is not required to issue its share of nominations. During the pandemic, the province stopped holding draws for the final months of 2020. Plus, unlike before, it only invites applicants who are already in the province to apply.

Requirements for Alberta PNP

To be eligible for provincial nomination through the Alberta Express Entry stream, you must have work experience in an eligible occupation. The AINP does not provide a list of eligible professions, but rather a list of professions that are not eligible for the component.

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

Your Express Entry profile must indicate that you want to move to Alberta. Certain factors increase your chances of being nominated, such as 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 a citizen of Alberta.

The purpose of this particular PNP is to support the economic development and diversification priorities of the province.
