Express Entry Candidates with minimum CRS score of 400 invited by Alberta for Provincial Nomination

In the latest provincial draw of Alberta, a total of 148 Express Entry candidates were invited by the province of Alberta for provincial nomination for Canada Permanent Residence Visa.

In the draw held on November 6th, Express Entry candidates were required to have a minimum of Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 400 in order to receive the invitation among other major requirements.

As we know, the Express Entry program is a point-based immigration program that manages the pool of the candidates registered under Canada’s three major skilled economic immigration programs: Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

CRS awards point to the candidates based on various selection factors like age, work experience, language proficiency, etc. For an Express Entry candidate to land a provincial nomination, they are given a major boost of 600 CRS points. These many points effectively make sure that candidates are issued the Invitation to Apply (ITA) to apply for Canada PR Visa to the Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC)

Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) like other PNPs has a stream that is in-line with the federal government’s Express Entry Program – Alberta Express Entry Stream. This stream allows the province to search for skilled candidates in the federal express pool who are able to meet the requirements of the province’s local labour market.

To be eligible for AINP, having a job offer is not mandatory. AINP gives priority to the express entry candidates who:

  • Have an Alberta Job-offer and/or work experience; and/or
  • Graduated from a Canadian post-secondary institution; and/or
  • Have a relative living in Alberta such as a parent, child and/or sibling

There are also some points that can decrease the likelihood of an express entry candidate getting a provincial nomination from Alberta. These points are as follows:

  • Express Entry profile expires within three months
  • Express Entry candidates are working in an occupation on Alberta Opportunity Stream Ineligible Occupations list, as well as the list of High-wage and low-wage occupations in province and any occupation that already has a high volume of submissions across all AINP streams
