On January 28, 2021, Alberta’s AINP conducted a PNP that invited 100 new immigration candidates to apply for a provincial nomination. These were Express Entry candidates holding a minimum CRS score of 360. These candidates were eligible to apply for a provincial nomination under the Alberta Express Entry stream.
The chosen candidates had their immigration profiles in the Express Entry system that manages applications of potential immigrants trying to move to Canada under economic streams including FSTP, FSWP, and CEC.
These applicants put up their profiles with IRCC and get ranked by CRS. The CRS scores are based on factors like education, work experience, age, and language skills in English or French. If the candidate gets a nomination from a Canadian province, for being a great talent to work in Canada to meet the needs of the province’s labor market, his/her CRS scores will get an additional 600 points. That’s enough to ensure he/she will get an ITA in the next federal Express Entry draw.
Like this PNP draw, there are draws happening all around the year at regular intervals at the provincial level that aligns itself with the Express Entry system. The chosen candidates will have experience in a relevant occupation that plays an important role in developing and diversifying the province’s economy.
