How to Apply for the Alberta Accelerated Tech Pathway?

The Alberta Accelerated Tech Pathway is aligned with the Alberta Express Entry Stream. To apply, you must first verify whether or not you meet the industry or National Occupation Classification (NOC) requirements.

Once this requirement is met, you can then start the application process by submitting details of your Express Entry profile, job offer, and employer to the AAIP. The provincial government will then assess the details provided in your application. If eligible, you will receive a provincial nomination.

With a provincial nomination alongside your Express Entry profile, you will automatically receive 600 points towards your CRS score. These additional points will then allow you to successfully receive an invitation to apply for Canada PR.
