9th express entry draw 2018

Express Entry candidate with low CRS score invited by Alberta for Provincial Nomination Program

Express Entry candidate with low CRS score invited by Alberta for Provincial Nomination Program

Province of Alberta has released information that is regarding the 14 draws that were held so far in 2019 for express entry linked immigration stream. These draw issued in total 3,357 invitations that allow applying for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence to express entry registered candidates with Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score as lows as 300 points.

As we know express entry program is a point-based program that manages the profile of the candidates who have registered under Canada’s three skilled immigration programs – Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC).  In case the express entry candidate is able to land the provincial nomination, they are awarded 600 CRS point that makes sure that the candidate gets the Invitation to Apply (ITA) to apply for Canada PR visa to the Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) stream – Alberta Express Entry Stream allows the province’s immigration office to search for the capable candidates registered under express entry program and meet the specified eligibility requirements and then invite them to apply for provincial nomination.

Under these draw express entry candidates invited, must be working in an occupation that “Supports Alberta’s economic development and diversification priorities,” and among other major criteria. Having a job offer or previous work experience in Alberta is not a requirement, AINP has stated that the candidate’s with job offer and/or work experience in province, a degree from Canadian education institution, and/or parent, child or sibling that are living in Alberta are given priority for provincial nomination for permanent residency in Alberta.

With the following 14 draws held, there were three draws where express entry candidates with low CRS score as 300 were invited:

Draw Date NOI’s Issued Lowest Score
10.01. 2019 337 300
25.01.2019 81 301
1.02.2019 168 301
22.02.2019 130 302
5.03.2019 473 400
12.03.2019 462 400
15.03.2019 106 300
19.03.2019 271 400
26.03.2019 370 400
2.04.2019 356 400
9.04.2019 172 300
15.04.2019 179 400
24.04.2019 133 400 119 400

As shown above, the largest draw by AINP was held on March 5, which sees a total of Notification of Interest (NOI) 473 issued.

This NOIs have issued candidates identified via a thorough search in the express pool. Express entry candidates who are able to receive an NOI, have 30 days to submit an application for a provincial nomination from the province.

Following are the factors that may decrease the chances of receiving NOI via Alberta’s Express Entry stream:

  • Express entry profile expires in 3 months or less
  • Working in an occupation:
    • On the list of High-wage and low-wage occupations in the province set out on the online Government of Canada refusal to process a Labour Market Impact Assessment list (LMIA)
    • On the Alberta Opportunity Stream Ineligible Occupations list, located under Alberta Opportunity Stream Section
    • That has a high volume of submissions across all AINP streams
