9th express entry draw 2018

Province of Alberta Invited 180 Express Entry Candidates For A Provincial Nomination

Province of Alberta invited 180 express entry candidates for a provincial nomination

Province of Alberta issues 180 Notification of Letters (NOIs) in the latest round of invitations to the candidates who have applied for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residency through its express entry linked in the draw held on July 5.

Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) has an express entry linked stream – Alberta Express Entry Stream that allows the province of Alberta to search for the candidates with the required skills and work experience in the federal government’s express pool. Candidates need to meet the stream’s eligibility criteria. Candidates with the low CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) of 425 points were issued the NOIs in the latest draw.

Federal Government’s Express Entry Program is a point-based program managing the pool of the candidates registered under Canada’s three skilled economic programs – Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC). Profiles of the candidates are ranked in the express pool on the basis of points awarded to the express profiles based on the factors like age, work experience, language proficiency, and education.

Then, the profiles with the highest rank have then issued the ITAs to apply for Canada PR Visa through regularly held express draws.

If an express entry candidate, is able to land the provincial nomination they are awarded 600 CRS points. These many points make sure that the candidate is able to get an Invitation to Apply (ITA) that allows the candidates to apply for Canada PR Visa to the Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

Now, to be eligible for Alberta’s express entry linked stream candidates do not require a job offer or previous work experience in the province. However, candidates are required to show “strong ties to Alberta” and must be working in an occupation that supports the province’s economic development and diversification priorities. Province gives priority to the candidates with:

  • Job offer and/or work experience in Alberta
  • Degree from a Canadian post-secondary institution and a valid job offer OR
  • Parent, child or sibling already living in Alberta

Looking at the statistics of this year, Alberta has held 17 draws until this point in the year 2019 with a total of 3,996 NOIs issued. Talking about the minimum CRS score requirement, Alberta invited candidates with the CRS score of 425 points which is much below than the CRS score cut-off requirement for express entry program that was set at 460 points. In 2019, the minimum CRS score requirement for an all-program express entry program was 438 points. Alberta has invited candidates with the CRS score as low as 300 points through their Express entry linked stream on four occasions. In this three CRS score, one had a minimum CRS score requirement of 301 points and one other had a CRS score cut-off of 302 points.
