Alberta conducts New Express Entry Draw with CRS 400

In the latest draw took place on August 15, 2019, Alberta issued a total of 121 Notifications of Interest (NOIs) under its Express Entry stream to express entry candidates with CRS score as low as 400. It is the second draw of the August month that took place through the Alberta Express Entry Stream, a stream that allows the province to look for Express Entry candidates who meet the eligibility criteria of this stream.

In the previous draw held on August 7, 2019, a total of 35 invitations were issued to the Express Entry candidates with CRS as low as 352. To be eligible to receive a nomination through the Alberta Express Entry Stream, the interesting candidate has to create an Express Entry profile.

Immigration candidates with a profile in Canada’s Express Entry system were the focus of new invitations to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence from the province of Alberta. Also, there is no requirement of a Job offer or work experience in Alberta to be considered for the Alberta Express Entry Stream but the applicant’s occupation should benefit the province economically. Alberta doesn’t have its list of eligible occupations like Saskatchewan and other provinces.

As per AINP rules and guidelines, there are a few points on whose basis it provides priority to the candidates:

a) A job offer or work experience in Alberta;

b) a degree from a Canadian post-secondary institution and a valid job offer; or<

c) a parent, child or sibling already living in Alberta.

Candidates who receive NOI from the province are eligible to apply for provincial nomination and nominated candidates get additional 600 points to their overall CRS score, results in escalating the chances of getting invitation in a next Express Entry draw. In 2019, Alberta has chosen Express Entry candidates with CRS as low as 300 for almost four occasions.

Express Entry system operates the three major economic immigration programs: the Federal Skilled Worker Class, the Federal Skilled Trades Class, and the Canadian Experience Class. Interesting candidates can apply for these programs by submitting the application in the Express Entry Pool and are given a CRS score depending on factors like age, education, work experience, English/French proficiency, among other factors. Every Express Entry draw selects a set number of candidates and invites them to apply for Canada permanent residence.
