Alberta - PNP Program

Alberta - Canada PNP Visa Agents

The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) is a business immigration programme that nominates people to live in Alberta permanently. You must possess skills to fill job shortages or either  intend to start or purchase a business in Alberta. They must be able to support their families as well. The charge of the initiative are only Alberta and Canadian government.

If one is nominated under the programme, you, your spouse or common-law partner, as well as any dependent children, may apply for permanent residence status.

Permanent residence applications are handled by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. These applications are likewise decided by the federal government.

AINP Streams 

How to be nominated, select a stream:

For foreign workers who reside and work in Alberta, or who plan to live and work here, the AINP has two streams :

Alberta Opportunity Streams 

An AINP nomination is available to those applicants who are qualified and can live and work in Alberta and have a job offer from an Alberta business.

The Alberta Opportunity Stream (AOS) criteria may apply at the time you submit your application, when the AINP evaluates it, or both. To ensure that you meet the qualifying requirements, carefully read the criteria.

The submission date for paper applications submitted to the AINP is based on the mailing date.

The following is how the AINP defines the term “mailing date”:

The mailing date indicates the day the item was accepted by Canada Post if sent by registered mail.

The mailing date for a parcel is the day it was accepted by Canada Post or picked up by a courier provider.

AINP confirmed mailing dates with the mail service provider as necessary.

Requirements for residency and work permits

You must have a valid temporary residence status in Canada that permits you to work in Canada, such as a temporary foreign worker permit, at the time your application is submitted and the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) assesses your application.

Applicants who are eligible

You must have a valid work permit – not implied status, automatic extension of status, or restoration status – for an eligible occupation at the time your application is submitted and assessed by the AINP.

Requirements for Eligibility

We’ll go over the five primary kinds of eligibility requirements in more detail below. If you, your employer, and your job offer meet all of the standards listed below, you can apply to the Alberta Opportunity Stream (AOS). This stream does not necessitate any settlement monies.

  1. Language eligibility:

You must show that you have a 4 or 5 on the Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) test in either French or English.

If you work in a NOC Skill Type/Level 0, A, or B occupation, the minimum language skill needed is CLB5.

For each language skill, the language requirement for NOC Skill Level C or D occupations is CLB4.

The AINP has now accepted the TCF Canada.

The minimum needed language test score for each language skill is CLB7 (instead of CLB4) if you apply under NOC code 3413 (Nurse aides, orderlies, and patient service associates).

  1. Educational requirements: 

If you do not have a Post-Graduate Work Permit (PGWP), you merely need to have finished a high school education in your home country. Beginning January 1, 2021, you must have completed a high school diploma that meets Alberta criteria.

There are additional requirements if you have a PGWP:

Your current job must be connected to your Alberta subject of study.

If you’ve been accepted and are enrolled in an Alberta credential programme, you’ll need to do the following:

  • a diploma or a post-graduate diploma (minimum one year in length)
  • master’s degree programme (minimum 2 years in length)
  • bachelor’s degree (undergraduate)
  • a postgraduate qualification
  • master’s degree master’s degree master’s degree master’s degree master’s

Your credential must be on the Alberta Opportunity Stream List of Alberta Advanced Education Approved Post-Secondary Credentials on or after April 1, 2019.

  1. Work experience is necessary:

The occupation you are working in at the moment you apply to the AOS is your “current occupation.” When you apply and the AINP evaluates your application, your present occupation must also reflect your work experience.

You must have the following items when your application is received by the AINP:

over the last 18 months, a minimum of 12 months full-time job experience in your present occupation in Alberta.

within the last 30 months, a minimum of 24 months of full-time work experience in your present occupation in Canada and/or abroad (this work experience can be a combination of experience earned in Alberta, Canada (outside Alberta), and/or abroad).

Work experience must meet the following criteria in order to be considered valid:

  • Must have been full-time, for a minimum of 30 hours per week, for the same occupation as your current occupation, permitted by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, and completed in Alberta or Canada with valid temporary resident status.
  • Cannot have been obtained while enrolled in a study programme in Canada and participating in co-op work placements or internships.
  • PGWP holders are exempt from this rule: work experience earned during paid co-op work terms as part of a programme of study at an Alberta post-secondary school can be used if it was full-time (minimum 30 hours per week), directly connected to your present occupation, and gained entirely in Alberta.
  • Your occupation must also be relevant to your previous undergraduate or graduate field of study outside Canada if you are admitted and enrolled in your Alberta credential programme on or after April 1, 2019, and you completed an Advanced Education-approved one-year post-graduate certificate.
  • To work in your present occupation in Alberta, you must have the necessary licencing, registration, or certification. Consider the following scenario:
  • You must have a valid Alberta Apprenticeship and Industry Trade (AIT) recognised trade certificate if you work in a required trade in Alberta.
  • You must have valid certification as a child development worker (previously Level 2) or child development supervisor if you work as a childcare worker (formerly Level 3).
  1. Employment offer requirements: You must have a legitimate job offer from an Alberta company to work in your current occupation in order to apply for the AOS. In Alberta, you must be employed full-time by the company.

The job offer must be signed by both you and your Alberta employer and must include the following requirements to be eligible for the AOS:

  • Work that is both continuous and compensated.
  • Work full-time (at least 30 hours each week).
  • For a period of at least 12 months, you must be employed.
  • Continue to work in your current position.
  • Wages and benefits that meet or exceed the requirements set out in your Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA), or that meet or exceed the requirements set out in your Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA).
  1. Employment offer requirements: You must have a legitimate job offer from an Alberta company to work in your current occupation in order to apply for the AOS. In Alberta, you must be employed full-time by the company.

The job offer must be signed by both you and your Alberta employer and must include the following requirements to be eligible for the AOS:

  • Individuals identified as Directors, Shareholders, or Agents of the Alberta employer on the Corporate Registry System, as well as independent contractors, business owners, or temporary agency workers (CORES).

  • Employees who do not work on company premises in Alberta, such as those who operate in a “virtual” location or support the company by telecommuting from outside the province.

Alberta Express Entry System

Candidates who are qualified with an express entry profile may get an invitation by the AAIP which will allow them to apply for the permanent residence nomination. Factors that can increase your chances for this can be the following:

  • Having Alberta job offer or work experience
  • Graduate from a post-secondary institution in Canada
  • Having blood relatives as a permanent resident living in Alberta
  • French as a first language

Rural Renewal Stream

Candidates who have a job offer to work in a rural Alberta community are qualified for applying the Alberta Advantage Immigration Program. At the time of submitting the application and during the assessment of application by AAIP, you must intend to and be able to reside and work in the designated community in Alberta.
