Alberta PNP draw: Alberta welcomes 293 potential immigrants

Alberta has announced information on an immigration draw scheduled for October 12 

The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) welcomed 293 Express Entry applicants with at least a 300 score to apply for a provincial nomination. This is the first draw of the month for the province. In September, Alberta held four Alberta Express Entry stream draws, each with a minimum score requirement of 300. In just one month, 1,610 invitations were sent out.

Alberta has invited 5,910 Express Entry candidates to submit for a provincial nomination since commencing invitation rounds in January 2021. It has taken a little respite in the latter months of 2020. The draws invite Express Entry applicants to apply for a nomination certificate, greatly assisting their permanent residency application. This year, Alberta is allowed to issue 6,250 nomination certificates.

The Alberta Express Entry program is a condensed version of the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). It allows the provincial government to examine the federal government's Express Entry pool for profiles of individuals who may be eligible for a provincial nomination. Express Entry application management system controls the three Federal High Skilled programs: Canadian Experience Class, Federal Skilled Worker Program, and Federal Skilled Trades Program.

If you meet the Express Entry eligibility requirements, you will be assigned a score using the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). Your age, education, work experience, English or French language skills, and other characteristics contribute to your overall score. Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) organize Express Entry draws on a monthly basis, asking the top-scoring individuals to apply for permanent residence.

The Express Entry system makes it possible to immigrate without a provincial nomination; however, persons with lower CRS scores may apply for a PNP. Provincial nominees earn a 600-point increase in their overall score. Therefore, if the lowest-scoring Alberta draw candidates are recommended, their new CRS scores will be 900, which will be more than enough to be invited to the next Express Entry draw. You must have work experience in a related occupation to qualify for a provincial nomination through the Alberta Express Entry stream.

Usually, AINP does not provide a list of suitable vocations; instead, it provides a list of occupations that are not suited for the stream. For example, many applicants for positions in this industry work as food service managers, transport truck drivers, and cooks, among other things.

Certain qualities, such as work experience, a Canadian education, or a job offer in Alberta, boost your chances of getting nominated. It is also advantageous to have a family member, such as a parent, kid, or sibling, who is already residing in Alberta.
