Immigration candidates with a profile in Canada’s Express Entry system were the focus of new invitations to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence from the province of Alberta.
Alberta issued 121 Notifications of Interest (NOIs) to Express Entry stream candidates with Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores as low as 400 in its latest draw, which took place August 15.
This was the second draw of August through its Alberta Express Entry Stream, which allows the province to search the federal Express Entry system for candidates who meet the stream’s eligibility requirements.
An earlier draw on August 7 issued 35 invitations to candidates with Express Entry CRS scores as low as 352.
In order to be considered for a nomination through the Alberta Express Entry Stream, as well as many other Express Entry-aligned Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs), the first step is to create an Express Entry profile.
