Alberta Express Entry Stream
The provincial stream in Express Entry permits the AINP in selecting candidates, belonging to the federal EE pool, after they meet its eligibility requirements. It invites them to seek the provincial nomination. After the launch, there were 27 draws in the Alberta Express Entry stream issuing 5,382 NOIs totally.
Moreover, the eligibility norms of the Alberta Express Entry stream demand that the candidate should have the Express Entry profile that is active. It does not require a job offer/previous work experience in Alberta for qualifying, but a candidate must possess sizable work experience in a job supporting the diversification priorities and economic development of the province. The applicant should at least have a CRS score in the range of 300 or above. It also gives Priority to candidates that have a:
Alberta job offer and previous work experience;
A post-secondary degree from Canadian institutions besides the valid job offer; or
Any near relative with a domicile in Alberta
