Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program

The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) was conceived for people with talents and capabilities in Alberta to cope with job shortages. The AINP accepts applications from skilled workers through the Alberta Opportunity Stream and Express Entry. Two company programmes, the self-worker farmer stream and the International Graduate Entrepreneur Immigration Stream, are also underway. A third stream of business is scheduled to start in January 2021 with the Foreign Graduate Starts Visa Stream. The program is operated by the Alberta government in partnership with the federal immigration department, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

Alberta Opportunity Stream

This Stream was designed to simplify the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program application process, reduce waiting times and make the system fairer for candidates and employers.

Foreign Graduate Start-Up Visa Stream

This stream is aimed at qualified foreign-educated graduates from outside Canada, who wish to receive permanent residence upon launching start-up enterprises in Alberta.

Express Entry Stream

This stream allows Alberta to nominate a limited number of qualified candidates from federal Express Entry pool, through periodic draws.

Self-Employed Farmer Stream

This stream is managed by the AINP and targets applicants with farm management skills and sufficient financial resources to invest in a farming business in Alberta.
