Alberta PNP draw: 148 Candidates invited


The province of Alberta has released the details of Provincial Nominee Program draw conducted on May 27.


The candidate’s profile should have been launched in Express Entry pool in order to be eligible for invitation. Three economic migration programs are managed by Express Entry. Approval of PNP will fetch an additional 600 points to the candidate’s Comprehensive Ranking Score. With these additional points, an ITA in the draw is guaranteed.

Coronavirus impacted AINP activities. For the moment, only candidates are being invited for nomination within Alberta.


Candidates must have work experience in a qualified occupation which supports the economic development and diversification priorities of the province. The AINP does not include a list of qualifying professions, but instead provides a list of professions they do not take into account. Ineligible professions include those in the province of Alberta's high- and low-wage government jobs, and the Alberta Employment Stream Ineligible Professions list.


With special measures for coronavirus in place, the AINP now requires candidates to meet the following criteria to receive a nomination:


Be employed in Alberta at the moment, even though they work from home;

Have a work permit which allows them to work in their current job;

Have a full-time, paid job that meets the provincial minimum wage, exceeds the requirements of the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) and must work in an eligible job.
