The Alberta Advantage Immigration Program (AAIP) is designed to lure skilled and talented workers and entrepreneurs to Alberta. It has two pathways: 

  • Express Entry pathway, which is for express entry candidates who are eligible for one of the economic immigration programs managed through the federal Express Entry system 
  • Non-Express Entry pathway, which is for candidates who don’t have express entry profile, but who have skills and experience that are in demand in Alberta.

In general, this allocation is good news for those who are looking to move to Canada through the AAIP. The greater than before allocation of nomination certificates over the upcoming years will offer more opportunities for skilled workers and entrepreneurs to make Alberta their new home.

The Alberta PNP- Express Entry stream is easiest Canada PR pathway, as it invites, assess and nominates the skilled worker applicants with relatively low CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) score, i.e. as low as just 300 CRS points.
