AAIP made changes to immigration pathways

On April 3, 2023, the AAIP made changes to immigration pathways to allow more in-demand workers and entrepreneurs to become permanent residents and immigrate to the province. 

According to the announcement, the AAIP will use up to 30 percent of available Express Entry allocations for the Dedicated Healthcare Pathway, allowing healthcare workers with an Alberta job offer to immigrate to the province. 


Additionally, Alberta reduced the minimum investment requirements for the AAIP Rural Entrepreneur Stream from $200,000 to $100,000 and removed the Settlement

Organization Endorsement Letter Requirement for the AAIP Rural Renewal Stream. 

Most importantly, the AAIP will participate in the Economic Mobility Pathways Pilot (EMPP) to help refugees immigrate to the province through existing economic programs. 


In order to attract and retain workers, Alberta is streamlining the application process for the rural renewal stream. The Rural Renewal Stream will enable rural towns to attract, hire, and accept newcomers based on local requirements by doing away with the need for a letter from a settlement agency.

Finally, Alberta provided a new AAIP phone line as an additional option to contact the AAIP. 


Alberta Advantage Immigration Program 

An economic immigration program named the Alberta Advantage Immigration Program (AAIP) suggests individuals for Alberta permanent citizenship. Candidates must have the necessary skills to fill open positions in Alberta or have plans to buy or launch a business there. In addition, they must be able to support their families. The Canadian and Albertan governments manage the program.

You, your spouse or common-law partner, and any dependent children can apply for permanent residence status if you are nominated through the program. Applications for permanent citizenship are processed by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada.
