Alberta Advantage Immigration Program


Alberta Advantage Immigration Program


Located in Western Canada, Alberta is home to two of Canada's largest cities, Calgary and Edmonton, and is the most populous of the country's three 'Prairie provinces'. It is also renowned as one of the most beautiful parts of North America, with famous national parks, such as Banff and Jasper.

Alberta, a province in western Canada, is primarily known for its oil and gas resources and agricultural production. Its landscape encompasses forests, magnificent Rocky Mountains, and picturesque prairies. In addition to the diverse economy and cultural background, it offers high living standard, outstanding healthcare, and excellent education systems.

The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program is an economic immigration program that targets prospective immigrants with the desired skills and experience to meet skill shortage in Alberta or the ones intending to acquire or set up a business. The applicants, if nominated via the AINP program, can apply for permanent residence collectively with their spouse or common-law partner, and dependent children.

The province operates the Alberta Advantage Immigration Program (AAIP), formerly the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program. Through this program, prospective immigrants with the right mix of skills and work experience needed by the province may receive an Alberta Provincial Nomination Certificate.

The Alberta Express Entry Stream works by invitation only. Candidates who have Express Entry profiles may receive a Notification of Interest (NOI) from the Alberta government directly in the federal system. Invited candidates then have a limited about of time to indicate to the province that they are interested in being considered for selection under this stream.

If selected, candidates will receive a request from the AAIP to apply for provincial nomination by submitting all required documents through the AAIP online portal.
