Alberta holds New PNP draw Aug 17
Alberta invited 396 Express Entry candidates to apply for a provincial nomination on August 10, the biggest draw of the year.
The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) invited applicants with Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores of at least 300, the lowest required to be eligible for nomination.
These candidates can now apply for a provincial nomination through the Alberta Express Entry stream.
Compared to the previous Alberta Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draw, more applicants were invited to this draw, and the CRS requirement remained the same.
Alberta has now invited 3,157 Express Entry candidates to apply for a provincial nomination since the invitation rounds resumed in January 2021. It had taken a temporary hiatus in the final months of 2020. Alberta is authorized to issue 6,250 nomination certificates in 2021.
