Two significant modifications have been launched to the Stream of Alberta Opportunity, including the elimination of its least income requirement and an update to its least language demands.
The elimination of the least income demand will be appealed to all applications presented on or later Jun 14, 2018, which is the day the current Alberta Opportunity Stream (A.O.S) started allowing appeals.
Reforms in Alberta Opportunity Stream
The A.O.S is for qualified foreign nationals who are employed in Alberta or foreign graduates who have finished their studies at a recognized post-secondary institution in the province of Alberta.
The Program of Alberta Immigrant Nominee (A.I.N.P) stated it would proceed to verify whether applicants are being paid the provincial least salary and whether the salary respects the least for their profession as established in their L.M.I.A or on the Alberta province official website.
The other modification concerns least language conditions, which the A.I.N.P has set for both applicants working in a area that is estimated skill level C or D below National Occupational Classification (N.O.C) of Canada and those working in a profession with an N.O.C skill level rating of 0, A or B.
The A.I.N.P said the least language demand for those operating in N.O.C C or D positions will continue at a Canada Language Benchmark (C.L.B) score of 4 and will not rise to C.L.B 5.
Alberta Opportunity Stream was revealed in June, and the A.I.N.P announced the least language demand would rise to C.L.B 5 beginning Jun 14, 2019. It is now no continued the case for N.O.C C or D rated professions.
As to applicants working in professions that are rated N.O.C 0, A or B, the A.I.N.P said the least language requirement would continue at C.L.B 4 till Jan 1, 2020, and it will rise to C.L.B 5.
These modifications will make it simpler for people to appeal to the program and will help make sure the province of Alberta can proceed to fill job deficit with qualified applicants when there are no Canadians or Albertans feasible to do the work.
