Eligible and qualified candidates are directly selected from the express entry pool by Alberta Immigration Nomination Program (AINP). Candidates need to receive a notification of interest in their federal express entry portal (NOI) before they submit their application to the province.

Selection from Express Entry Pool for a Notification of interest from the Province

All the occupations which are high in demand in the province will have more chances of getting a notification of interest from the province. The occupation in demand list is not permanent and these occupations keep on changing subject to the demand of the labor market of the province.

You may receive a notification of interest:

  • If you have an active Express Entry Profile with at least 67 points
  • If you have expressed interest in permanently migrating to Alberta
  • if you have at least a score of 300 in the comprehensive ranking system (CRS)

  • Your occupation is ineligible to apply for the AINP program

What is an International Skilled Worker Expression of Interest (EOI)?

International skilled worker Expression of interest is submitted through Federal skilled worker Express Entry portal.

Only those profiles are given notification of interest which are more qualified because of occupations in demand, relatives in Alberta or have a job offer although there is no limit to the number of applications to submit an expression of interest under Express entry profile.

International skilled worker Expression of Interest submission is not considered as an application to AINP. It is a type of pre-application which allows an aspirant to express their interest and showcase their profile to the province. There is no fee to create an Expression of interest. It takes around 60 to 90 minutes of time to complete the application. It requires you to submit your personal details like Age,education,work experience, language scores, details of your family, details of your past studies,relatives in Canada etc.

So, your interest submission through an online application to move to canada is called Expression of interest. Applicants having the required qualification for Alberta’s job market are selected through the Skilled Worker EOI system and are issued an “Invitation to Apply.”
