Alberta releases details of first PNP draw in 2022

In its first PNP draw of the year, Alberta invited 250 Express Entry candidates with scores as low as 327.

Alberta invited 250 Express Entry candidates to apply for a provincial nomination on January 5. The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) invited candidates who had Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores of at least 327. Invited candidates may be eligible for a provincial nomination under the Alberta Express Entry stream. If they get the nomination, they will be one step closer to Canadian permanent residence. Provincial nominees can apply for Canadian immigration to the federal under the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). Express Entry candidates with provincial nominations get boosted to the top of the pool, and are primed to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence. News of the draw comes nearly a week after Alberta announced its new Accelerated Tech Pathway
