Alberta PNP Occupation In-demand List 2022

When you are applying for the provincial nomination, you must have work experience in an eligible occupation that matches your previous work experience. Almost all the occupations under National Occupation Classification (NOC) skill level 0, A, B, or C are eligible for AINP.

AINP gives two lists for ineligible occupations. One is for the occupations ineligible for its Alberta Opportunity Stream (AOS) and the other is for the occupations that are ineligible for candidates under AOS who are on a post-graduate work permit (PGWP).
