rise in the AAIP

Alberta is expecting a massive rise in the AAIP over the next three years, Alberta is currently in dire need of workers to fill over 100,000 job vacancies and bolster its economy. To meet the labor shortage, the Prairie province has asked Ottawa to increase the number of immigrants it can accept through the Alberta Advantage Immigration Program (AAIP). 


Danielle Smith, Premier of the province, declared that AAIP would experience a significant surge over the subsequent three years. By the end of 2025, there may be an estimated 67 percent increase in nominations. The AAIP has recently increased the immigration numbers to 9,750 nominations for 2023. Those figures are predicted to climb even higher, with 10,140 anticipated for 2024 and approximately 10,849 for 2025.


Rise in the AAIP from 6,500 to 10,849 by 2025 

The Prairie province has been urging Ottawa to increase the number of immigrants it may accept through its Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), which it relates to as the AAIP, in order to meet its labor demand. 

The AAIP is permitted to increase the number of nominations.

  • In 2023, the number of nominations is set to increase to 9,750.
  • In 2024, the number of nominations is set to increase to 10,140.
  • In 2025, the number of nominations is set to increase to 10,849.

These are significant increases over the 6,500 permitted the prior year.

As well, Alberta Immigration Minister Rajan Sawhney said in a statement that “In order to grow their societies, fill labor shortages in major industries, and sustain Alberta’s economic success, the province needs more immigrants.”


Access to postsecondary education for all immigrants 

Demetrios Nicolaides, the minister of advanced education for Alberta, stated: “The Rural Renewal and Rural Entrepreneur Streams demonstrate that skilled immigrants are accepted, supported, and able to thrive and grow outside of Alberta’s major cities and fill open positions all over our province.”

The AAIP offers newcomers a number of options to gain permanent residence in Alberta, including temporary foreign workers, international graduates, and entrepreneurs.

Additionally, Alberta’s minister of advanced education has vowed his department’s support in guaranteeing that postsecondary education is affordable and accessible so that everyone has the opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills they need to create successful careers and secure Alberta’s future.

The possibility of increasing the size of the provincial labor force through immigration does have Alberta’s business community smiling.


Alberta Advantage Immigration Program (AAIP)

An economic immigration program called the Alberta Advantage Immigration Program (AAIP), formerly known as the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program, suggests people for Alberta permanent residence. Applicants must have the necessary skills to fill open positions in Alberta or have plans to buy or start a business there. 

Additionally, they must be able to support their families. The Canadian and Albertan governments oversee the initiative. 

You, your spouse or common-law partner, as well as any dependent children, may apply for permanent residence status if you are nominated through the program.
