The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) is Alberta's Provincial Nominee Program. Through this program, prospective immigrants with the right mix of skills and work experience needed by the province may receive an Alberta Provincial Nomination Certificate.
The AINP consists of the following immigration streams:
Alberta Opportunity Stream
This stream allows individuals who meet the stream's minimum eligibility requirements and are working in Alberta in an eligible occupation to apply for an AINP provincial nomination.
Alberta Express Entry Stream
This stream allows the Government of Alberta to nominate eligible candidates from Canada's Express Entry system. A successful nomination under this stream results in 600 additional Comprehensive Ranking System points.
Alberta Self-Employed Farmer Stream
This stream allows individuals with farming experience and personal funds to purchase and develop a farm in Alberta to apply for permanent residence. Successful applicants are farm owners/operators who plan to live in Alberta in order to purchase and manage their farming business.
