AINP – Alberta issued 121 Notifications of Interest (NOIs) to Express Entry stream candidates with Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores as low as 400 in its latest draw, which took place on August 15.
This was the second draw of August through its Alberta Express Entry Stream, which allows the province to search the federal Express Entry system for candidates who meet the stream’s eligibility requirements.
An earlier draw on August 7 issued 35 invitations to candidates with Express Entry CRS scores as low as 352.
No job offer or previous work experience in Alberta is required to be eligible for the Alberta Express Entry Stream. However, applicants should be working in an occupation that supports the province’s economic development and diversification priorities. The province does not provide a list of eligible occupations.
The AINP says it may give priority to candidates with:
- 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.
