Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) nominates the immigrants who want to live in the province as permanent residents and help in the province's economic development. To be eligible for Alberta PNP, you have to meet the minimum requirements of the provincial nominee program that also includes having work experience in eligible occupations for the process.

Alberta PNP Occupation In-demand List 2024

When you are applying for the provincial nomination under the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP), you must have work experience in an eligible occupation that matches your previous work experience. Almost all the occupations under the National Occupation Classification (NOC) TEER Category 0, 1, 2, 3 4 and 5 are eligible for AAIP.

At the time your application is submitted to the AAIP, and at the time the department takes to assess your application, you must work in an eligible occupation in Alberta. Occupation requirements also apply to your work experience and job offer.

AINP gives two lists for occupations. One is for the occupations ineligible for its Alberta Opportunity Stream (AOS) and the other is for the occupations that are eligible for the Alberta Express Entry stream.
