9th express entry draw 2018

Alberta Invites Candidates With Minimum CRS Score of 300 CRS Points for Canada PR Visa

Alberta Invites Candidates With Minimum CRS Score of 300 CRS Points for Canada PR Visa

AINP invites a total of 191 Express entry candidates through it’s Alberta Express Entry Stream to apply for a provincial nomination for Canada PR Visa

Province of Alberta has released the details of the provincial draw that was held on May 13, inviting express entry candidates through AINP – Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program’s “enhanced” stream Alberta Express Entry stream.

A total of 191 Express entry candidates were invited to apply for a provincial nomination for Canada PR Visa with the minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score set at 300 points to get a Notification of Interest (NOI) from Alberta.

Express Entry applicants who are able to get a provincial nomination are awarded an additional 600 CRS points for their overall score. Provincial applicants are effectively guaranteed to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) in a subsequent Federal Express Entry draw, such as the one held on May 27.

As the coronavirus still poses an imminent public health risk, Alberta only considers candidates for a provincial nomination if they already live and work in the province. Normally, it is not necessary to have a job offer to receive a notice of intent via the Alberta Express Entry Stream.

Alberta offers flexibility for PNP applicants who cannot submit all documents due to disruptions in service resulting from the pandemic. The AINP will accept copies of the documents and if the candidate meets the necessary requirements, their file will be kept for 60 calendar days.

The first step to immigrating to Canada through the Alberta Express Entry stream is to create a profile in the federal government’s Express Entry program. Applicants must have work experience in a qualifying profession that supports the province’s economic development and diversification priorities. The AINP does not provide a list of eligible professions, but rather a list of professions they will not take into consideration. Ineligible occupations include those in high-wage and low-wage occupations of the Province of Alberta and the list of ineligible occupations in the Alberta Opportunity Stream.

With special measures in place against coronaviruses, the AINP now requires that applicants meet the following criteria to receive an appointment:

  • Currently work in Alberta, even if they work from home;
  • Have a work permit authorizing them to hold their current job;
  • Have a full-time paid job, meet the provincial minimum wage, exceed the requirements of the Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA); and they must work in an eligible profession.

Applicants who worked full time before the coronavirus pandemic and those who work in a regulated profession who cannot meet permit requirements will have their application pending for 60 calendar days.

If applicants do not have a recent employment history in the province, their applications will not be processed until further notice.

So far this year, Alberta has sent 1,598 invitations to Express Entry applicants. In 2019, the Albert Express Entry Stream issued 6,884 invitations. Alberta’s provincial allocations for 2020 have not yet been released.
