The Alberta Advantage Immigration Program (AAIP) frequently searches the federal Express Entry pool, to select candidates and nominate them to apply for Canada PR. Alberta conducts 2-4 Express Entry draws each month, but the information on the draws held is typically posted one week later.

The Alberta PNP latest draws held in March saw invitations being issued to 75 candidates under the Dedicated Healthcare pathway. The minimum CRS score required to be eligible for an invitation was 303.
