Eligibility Requirements for the Alberta Provincial Nominee Program

For instance, the Express Entry stream requires candidates to demonstrate their ability to contribute to Alberta’s economic development or showcase strong ties to the province, and create an Express Entry profile by fulfilling the requirements of the relevant federal Canada Express Entry Process.

Alberta Occupation in-Demand List 2022

Skilled workers applying for Canada immigration under the Alberta Opportunity Stream must ensure that their occupation is in-demand in Alberta. The Alberta Occupation in Demand List indicates skills shortages in Alberta’s job market, which cannot be satisfied by the residents and citizens currently living in the province. Thus, the AINP invites overseas skilled workers to fulfill these shortages. Most occupations listed under National Occupational Classification Skill Type 0, or Skill Level A, B, C or D, are in-demand in Alberta.
