Alberta Express Entry is one of the immigration streams of the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program. AINP is the Provincial Nominee Program managed by the Alberta province. The stream chooses candidates from the pool of federal Express Entry and offers invites for Provincial Nomination applications.
You will be offered the ITA for Canadian Permanent Residence if you are successful in receiving Provincial Nomination through Alberta Express Entry. The application for this program is only through invitation and overseas citizens cannot directly apply for the program.
Alberta Express Entry is a stream of the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program that is aligned with the federal Express Entry. So all candidates in the pool of federal Express Entry are automatically considered once they create their profile in it. Alberta directly shares the notification with the Express Entry profiles of the candidates that it chooses for ITA.
