Alberta PNP held the latest draw with the lowest CRS score in 12 months

The latest Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP)s provincial draw invites immigrants with a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 300 to apply for provincial nomination on May 5.

It was not the biggest draw of the year, 250 immigrant applicants were invited. This year's record is 300. But, the minimum CRS score requirement was the lowest since May of last year.

If the candidates who were invited are eligible under Alberta's Express entry stream, they earn extra 600 CRS points to their overall Express Entry score. Once that happens, they will likely be invited to apply for permanent residence in Canada.

Alberta PNP manages the Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP) for immigrants to Alberta.

The Alberta Express Entry stream is an enhanced PNP, which means it comes from the Express Entry pool of candidates. The first step to being eligible for this program is to obtain a profile in the Express Entry pool of candidates.

AINP's Express entry stream is an enhanced provincial immigration stream that allows the express entry candidates with strong ties to the province to apply for provincial nomination. Priority is given to candidates who can support the provincial government in its economic development and diversification priorities.

Alberta PNP is only considering candidates who are currently living and working in the province for provincial nomination.

Applicants must have work experience in an eligible occupation. The AINP does not provide a list of eligible professions but does offer a list of professions that are not eligible for the component.

Alberta was given an annual allocation of 6,250 nominations in 2020. But due to the pandemic, this allocation has been reduced to 4,000 nominations. All these nominations were issued in June 2020, which is why there was no draw for the second half of the year.
