Specific overseas students in the Alberta province of Canada will benefit from the transition period for Alberta Opportunity Stream. The provisional period will assist them to adapt to the new list of Approved Post-Secondary Credentials – Alberta Advanced Education. This has been revealed by the Government of Alberta.
The list forms a part of the latest Alberta Opportunity Stream, as quoted by the CIC News. It determines the credentials of programs at post-secondary institutions in Alberta. This is for applicants who hold a Post-Graduation Work Visa.
Immigrant Nominee Program Alberta has said that the list is aimed at assisting overseas students. This is to determine if their work experience and education are aligned with the existing skill shortages in Alberta, added AINP.
The transition period is applicable to overseas students who are admitted to institutions in Alberta before 1 October 2018. This is for 1-year Certificate Programs at the entry level, Diploma, and Post-Graduate Certificate Programs that are not included in the list currently. These will now still be qualified for the Alberta Opportunity Stream subject to fulfilling all other criterions.
Overseas students who are accepted after or on 1 October 2018 will not be qualified to apply to the AINP for a Post-Graduation Work Visa. This is for those whose program is still not on the list. Nevertheless, they will still be able to apply for AOS in specific conditions. This is if they are able to obtain a Labour Market Impact Assessment based Work Visa.
Alberta Opportunity Stream requires all the applicants to fulfill the Work Visa and Residency Status requirements. They are also required to cater to the income level, work experience, education and language requirements. Work experience must be in an occupation that is not included in the list of ineligible occupations.
