How can I enter the nation via Alberta's Express Entry stream?

Check your Alberta PNP Points here

The first step in the Alberta Express Entry stream of immigration is creating an Express Entry profile.

Express Entry serves as the application management system for the three Federal High Skilled programs (Canadian Experience Class, Federal Skilled Worker Program, and Federal Skilled Trades Program).

If you are eligible for Express Entry, you will receive a score based on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). You score points on criteria like your age, education level, work experience, and degree of French or English fluency.

The IRCC invites the winners of its Express Entry to draw to submit applications for Canadian permanent residency.

It is possible to use the Express Entry system to apply for immigration without a provincial nomination. Candidates for Express Entry with lower CRS scores may be eligible for an immediate 600-point reward through the PNP.

Who is qualified to apply for Alberta Express Entry Stream?

You must have experience in a qualified occupation in order to apply for the Alberta Express Entry stream.

Instead of providing a list of jobs that are eligible for the stream, the AINP gives a list of occupations that are not. Many of the applicants that use this stream work as chefs, truck drivers, and food service managers, among other positions. The provincial government website states that because of the number of applications received, processing may take longer.

Work experience, education in Canada, and employment offer in Alberta all improve your chances of being nominated. It is also helpful to have family members who already live in Alberta, such as parents, kids, or siblings.

It should go without saying that you must also meet the requirements for Express Entry eligibility. To be considered, your CRS score must be at least 300. You could receive a "Notification of Interest" invitation if you said in your profile that you are interested in moving permanently to Alberta.

What happens once I receive the NOI?

You fill out an application for a provincial nomination in Alberta.

Your CRS rating will rise by 600 points if you get nominated. After obtaining an Invitation to Apply (ITA) from a later Express Entry draw, you can then apply for immigration to Canada.
