While there is the possibility of immigrating to Canada and getting permanent residence solely through the Express Entry system, you may consider the PNPs such as the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) if you have a low CRS score.

Anyone with a PNP nomination certificate gets an automatic 600 points in the Express Entry system. This score is added to their overall score to increase their invitation chances in the subsequent Express Entry draw. For instance, the lowest-scoring candidate among the 500 nominees from the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) with a 300 CRS cut off will have a CRS score of 901 in the Express Entry system.

Alberta Express Entry Stream Minimum Requirement

Besides qualifying for the Express Entry draw, your eligibility for Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) depends on other factors such as work experience. Ensure that your education and work experience fall in the eligible stream of work.

Remember, the Alberta Express Entry stream candidates apply through the following work streams:

  • Foodservice supervisors,
  • Transport truck drivers,
  • Cooks.

Although AINP fails to provide an exclusive list of occupations that qualify as eligible work streams, they provide that for those who do not qualify.

Here is How You Can Increase Your Invitation Chances

When you register, your express entry profile ensures that you express your interest in moving to Alberta to increase your chances of getting a nomination certificate. Besides, if you have a job offer in Alberta or a relative such as a Canadian parent in Alberta, you may improve your chances. In addition to work experience, Canadian education is also an added advantage to various Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) applicants.
