If you are knowledgeable about Canada immigration, you must be knowing that provincial immigration is a highly preferred pathway to obtain a Canada PR visa. But are you aware of which is the easiest PNP of them all?
Though every province has a PNP to its right, Alberta PNP is currently considered the easiest PNP. Let’s examine Alberta PNP and find out why it’s considered so and why it’s going to be so in 2022 too.
An introduction to AINP
AINP is an economic immigration program that issues nominations to individuals looking for permanent residence in Alberta. Nominees need to possess the skills to fill job vacancies that are facing a shortage of workers in Alberta. They could otherwise be those foreigners who are interested in starting and running a business in Alberta.
Streams under AINP
Alberta Opportunity Stream
This stream is for qualified candidates who are employed in Alberta and are living in the province. They have a job offer from an employer in Alberta who can apply to AINP for nominating a candidate.
Alberta Express Entry Stream
It’s for Express Entry candidates who are qualified enough to be invited by AINP to get nominated so that they can immigrate to the province.
International Graduate Entrepreneur Immigration System
Are you a foreign national who has graduated from an approved Alberta post-secondary institution? Do you want to start/buy a business in Alberta and run it? If your answer to both is “yes”, then International Graduate Entrepreneur Immigration System is meant for you.
Foreign Graduate Start-up Visa Stream
This stream is meant for foreign graduates from outside Canada. It enables them to apply for a Canada PR visa.
Why is Alberta PNP the easiest PNP?
Here are the reasons to consider Alberta PNP as the easiest PNP:
- AINP has an immigration stream that’s aligned with Canada Express Entry system. Candidates are invited via that stream with CRS score requirements as low as 300 points. This helps those in the Express Entry pool with lower scores to get the opportunity to be nominated for Canada PR sooner.
- Applying to the Alberta PNP system will fetch you 600 extra CRS points along with a provincial nomination. With the increased CRS points, you will be able to effectively guarantee that you will be invited to apply for a Canada PR visa. Higher your CRS score, the earlier you will get to apply for Canada PR.
Other Canada provinces that provide easy PNPs are:
- Prince Edward Island
- Nova Scotia
