The AINP is Alberta’s version of Canada’s Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP), under which participating provinces and territories to nominate Economic-Class immigration candidates for Canadian permanent residence each year. Participating provinces and territories search in the federal Express Entry system for skilled foreign workers with strong ties to the province or territory, or candidates who are working in an occupation that supports the province’s economic development and diversification priorities.

The federal Express Entry system manages the pool of candidates for three of Canada’s main economic immigration categories — the Federal Skilled Worker ClassFederal Skilled Trades Class and Canadian Experience Class and some parts of provincial immigrant nomination programs.

Advantages of AINP and other Provincial Nomination Programs

AINP and other PNPs typically require CRS points that are significantly lower than those requested for the federal Express Entry draws. For instance, the latest federal Express Entry draw of February 5, 2020 required minimum CRS of 472 points compared to AINP’s range of 300-350.

Candidates are not required to have a job offer in Alberta to participate in AINP, but having a job in Alberta may increase the likelihood of a candidate being invited. Candidates are ranked in the pool based on their CRS score, which considers factors such as age, education, skilled work experience and proficiency in English or French.

Aother major advantage of AINP and other PNPs is that, if a candidate’s provincial nomination is approved, the invited candidate will be issued an additional 600 Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points in the federal system. The additional points place them in a favorable position to receive a federal Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence in a future federal Express Entry draw.

In general, AINP will give priority to candidates with:

  • a job offer and/or work experience in Alberta;
  • a degree from a Canadian post-secondary institution and a valid job offer; or
  • a parent, child or sibling already living in Alberta.

For complete eligibility requirements see the AINP – Selection Criteria page.
