Alberta Immigration Holds a Draw Invites 374 Express Entry Candidates
On September 25th Alberta held its recent selection round for Express Entry and invited 374 candidates. They had a Comprehensive Ranking System score of 400 for applying and seeking the provincial nomination for permanent residence in Canada.

Canadian Immigration Gets A Boost

The Details of this draw were informed by the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program. This Program forms a component of Provincial Nominee Programs in Canada that allows nomination by the participating territories and provinces for a selected number of immigration candidates in the Economic Class to get the permanent residence every year.

Additionally, the territories and provinces participating in the PNP have a stream with a link to the federal system of Express Entry that administers the candidates’ pool for three immigration programs for skilled workers in Canada. These are:

  • Federal Skilled Trades Class,
  • Federal Skilled Worker Class,
  • Canadian Experience Class

Moreover, in September, the AINP held three rounds of selection through the Express Entry Stream in Alberta and also invited 852 candidates belonging to Express Entry for applying and seeking the provincial nomination.

The Express Entry Stream is Ideal

The Express Entry Stream in Alberta permits the AINP to look for skilled overseas workers in the federal pool who have some strong ties with Alberta or those who work in a job which supports economic development and diversification in the province. Candidates do not need an Alberta job offer in, but the Program states that those who have it have a better chance to get the invitation. After the provincial nomination, 600 points are added, in the Comprehensive Ranking System of Express Entry. Also the CRS determines the rank in the pool of Express Entry and the added points after getting the provincial nomination serve as an effective guarantee to get the invitation for applying to the PR in Canada. The score of 400 was comparatively higher than the selection rounds of AINP previously, when sometimes it was 300.


Furthermore, it is still lower compared to the score of 464 in the federal draw of Express Entry. After issuing 374 invitations in this draw the total number of invitations served to Express Entry candidates in 2019 stands at 6,088.
