ALBERTA May 19-1200 (1)

Abstract: The draw held by AAINP invites 100 candidates.


  • An Alberta Notification of Interest letter implies that you are being considered under this stream.
  • Based on the profile information available in the Express Entry portal, Alberta selects applicants and sends them a Notification of Interest letter.
  • Selection, notification, and eligibility requirements are different for candidates under the Accelerated Tech Pathway.

On May 19, 2022, Alberta held a draw under AAIP or Alberta Advantage Immigration Program. The draw issued 100 Notification of Interest letters to immigrant candidates.

IRCC or Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada limit the number of nomination in this program. The program aids in welcoming foreign nationals who migrate to Canada.

The CRS or Comprehensive Ranking Score of the lowest-ranked applicant who received the letter of Notification of Interest is 382. So far, in 2022, AAIP has issued a letter of Notification of Interest to 2050 candidates.
