Alberta is one of Canada’s three Prairie provinces, located in Western Canada. It is one of the fastest growing provinces of the country and home to two of the country’s major urban centers, Calgary and Edmonton. Alberta’s landscape varies from towering mountains to glacial lakes, from vast boreal forests to fertile prairies and desert badlands. The province’s natural resource portfolio includes natural gas, oil, coal, minerals and the famous Alberta oil sands, making Alberta Canada’s energy province.
Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program
The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) is designed for individuals who possess the skills and abilities to fill labor shortages in Alberta.
The AINP accepts skilled worker applications under the Opportunity Alberta stream and under the Express Entry system. It also operates one business program, the Self-employed Farmer stream.
The program is operated by the Alberta government in partnership with the federal immigration department, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). Interested candidates must follow a two-stage process: apply for nomination to the provincial government, and then, if nominated, apply for permanent residence to the federal government.
IRCC allocates to AINP a limited number of nominations each year.
The AINP accepts applications under three streams: Alberta Opportunity Stream, Express Entry, and the Self-employed Farmer Stream.
This stream is managed by the AINP in close collaboration with the Alberta Agriculture and Forestry, and targets applicants with farm management skills and sufficient financial resources to invest in a farming business in Alberta.
Unlike some of the other provinces, the AINP does not reward candidates whose occupations appear on a certain list. Rather, the province publishes a list of ineligible occupations.
The AINP issues periodic Notifications of Interest, inviting candidates to apply for nomination under the AINP Express entry stream.
The details of each draw are typically published approximately one month after the date of draw.
