Alberta Advantage Immigration Program (AAIP)
An economic immigration initiative called the Alberta Advantage Immigration Program (AAIP) recommends candidates for Alberta permanent residence. Candidates must have the necessary skills to fill open positions in Alberta or have plans to buy or start a business there. Also, they must be able to support their families.
The Canadian and Alberta governments administer the program. You, your spouse or common-law partner, and any dependent children may apply for permanent residence status if you are nominated through the program.
For foreign workers who are living in Alberta and working there or who plan to do so, the AAIP offers three streams.
- Alberta Opportunity Stream
- Alberta Express Entry Stream
- Rural Renewal Stream
Alberta Express Entry Stream
The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP), a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) administered by the province of Alberta, has a stream called Alberta Express Entry. Candidates are selected from the federal Express Entry pool and invited to submit for nomination by the province through the Alberta Express Entry stream.
All Express Entry applicants will be considered; the program’s exact selection criteria are not yet publicly available. A limited number of qualified candidates may be recommended by Alberta through the Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship (IRC) ExpressEntry Stream.
The 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.
