About the Alberta Express Entry Stream

The Alberta Express Entry Stream allows Alberta to nominate a limited number of qualifying candidates from Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada’s Express Entry system. Priorities and approaches to candidate selection in the Alberta Express Entry System are shared as a courtesy and are subject to change without notice.

Those interested in the Alberta Express Entry Stream must be asked to apply. You cannot apply for a nomination in this stream unless you have been invited to apply.

How candidates are selected in the Alberta Express Entry Stream?

Candidates may be sent a Notification of Interest (NOI) letter or invited to submit an application if they have:

  • Experience in a high-demand occupation and an immediate family connection in Alberta are also required.
  • a job offer in the healthcare sector from an Alberta business license to practice in one of the authorized healthcare professions under the Designated Healthcare Pathway; expedited processing is possible.
  • Under the Accelerated Tech Pathway, a job offer for an eligible tech occupation from an Alberta employer in an eligible tech industry is required; an initial Accelerated Tech Pathway web form is required as a first step, and faster processing applies.
  • Experience is needed to meet labor needs in important sectors such as agriculture, construction, tourism, and hospitality.
