Alberta holds new round of invitation on November 24, 2021.
Alberta invited 100 express entry candiates to apply for a provincial Nomination.
This was a relatively small draw, given that the majority of this year’s Alberta Immigrant Nominee (AINP) draws invited over 200 applicants at a time. Only one other draw in January was as small as 100, and the smallest was 50.
The scoring requirement was also relatively high for an Alberta draw of 350. Only another draw this year had a higher cutoff score of 360 in January.
The federal Department of Immigration, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) sets limits on the number of nominations that Alberta can make each year. For 2021, Alberta is authorized to offer 6,250 nomination certificates. So far this year, Alberta has issued 6,094 Certificates of Nomination. Perhaps this is the reason why the draw size was so small, since few certificates of nomination remain.
As of Dec. 7, there were approximately 400 requests for the Alberta Opportunity Stream stream and 825 requests for expressions of interest in the Alberta Express Entry pool, according to the government’s website.
