Alberta Express Entry Stream

Alberta Express Entry Stream falls under the Canadian Federal Skilled Worker Express Entry Program. No separate profile is needed to apply for the Alberta Express Entry Stream. A Federal express entry profile must have been created by the candidate and the candidate will then be required to choose the province Alberta as their preferred location in Canada to migrate.

The Alberta Express Entry Stream is an AINP program that supports all the eligible individuals to apply for their Canadian PR visas in Alberta. This stream grants the province approval to nominate a small number of eligible persons chosen from the Federal Express Entry Pool.

Notes To Be Considered
