Alberta invited 150 Express Entry candidates to apply for a provincial nomination of Alberta. Candidates with Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores as low as 350 were given NOIs.
Express Entry candidates with a provincial nomination from Alberta receive an additional 600 points toward their CRS score and are effectively guaranteed an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence in a subsequent draw from the Express Entry pool.
This stream of invitations draw doesn’t require job offer from Alberta Employer but priority may be given on following grounds:
- a job offer and/or work experience in Alberta;
- a degree from a Canadian post-secondary institution and a valid job offer; or
- a parent, child or sibling already living in Alberta.
