Alberta Express Entry Draws

Alberta Express Entry Draws are a way for the province of Alberta in Canada to select candidates for immigration through the Express Entry system. The Express Entry system is a points-based system used by the Canadian government to manage applications for permanent residence from skilled workers.

Alberta Express Entry Draws are conducted regularly to invite candidates who have shown interest in settling in the province. These draws focus on individuals with skills and qualifications that are in demand in Alberta's labour market. The process involves assigning points to candidates based on factors like education, work experience, language proficiency, and other criteria. To be eligible you must have either:

  • Experience in an in-demand occupation and an immediate family connection in Alberta
  • A job offer from an Alberta employer in the healthcare sector and are licensed to practice in one of the eligible healthcare professions under the Designated Healthcare Pathway
  • A job offer for an eligible tech occupation from an Alberta employer in an eligible tech industry under the Accelerated Tech Pathway
  • Experience needed to help support labour needs in key sectors, including agriculture, construction and tourism and hospitality

Candidates who score above a certain point threshold in the draw are invited to apply for permanent residence in Alberta.
