December 2017, 07
EMAIL  Print A+
The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program, of Canada, attained the nomination allotment for 2017 and issued 5,500 nomination certificates during the year 2017.

The AINP said, that the submitted applications will be processed, but no additional certificates will be issued until the beginning of 2018. On Dec. 4th, there were 3,050 applications waiting for assessment and processing.

Owing to the multi-year immigration plan, pursued by the federal government and announced on Nov. 1st, Alberta is likely to benefit from a higher allotment in 2018. It has a target of 55,000 in the Provincial Nominee Program for 2018, which is eight percent more compared to the target of 2017 of 51,000.

This Program allows Alberta to nominate potential immigrants possessing sufficient skills and experience which match the demands of the labor market in the province. The fact that Alberta is the major producer of oil and gas products in the country is notable.

New Streams to be introduced in 2018

The New Year will be heralded with the introduction of two new provincial nomination streams in Alberta

The Alberta Opportunity Stream

And the Alberta Express Entry Stream

The Opportunity Stream is a combination of the present Stream for Employers and the Strategic Recruitment Stream. 11 sub-categories have been consolidated under one set of eligibility criteria.

The Express Entry Stream permits the AINP to nominate some candidates in the Express Entry pool of the federal government. It has candidates from the three economic immigration classes they being the Federal Skilled Trades Class, Federal Skilled Worker Class, and the Canadian Experience Class.

Candidates in the Express Entry, who are successful in receiving a nomination, using the Alberta Express Entry Stream, get 600 CRS points additionally and also get an Invitation to Apply for permanent residence in Canada in a later draw.

In order to be considered under the Alberta Express Entry Stream, all candidates are required to have a profile filed in the Express Entry pool.

At the time of the creation of the Alberta Opportunities and the Express Entry-aligned streams, the Government of the province projected several labor shortages to be removed in these occupations and sectors which required immediate addressing. They included: Nurse Supervisors and Registered Nurses with an expected shortage of 5,434 workers in the next 8 years,

Medical Technologists and Technicians with an expected shortage of 2,322 workers in the next 8 years,

Computer And Information Systems Professionals with an expected shortage of 1,426 workers in the next 8 years,

Managers in Construction and Transportation with an expected shortage of 1,386 workers in the next 8 years,

Sales and Service Supervisors with an expected shortage of 1,145 workers in the next 8 years

We will happily serve the aspirants and guide them in attaining their PR Status in the future.
