Alberta has issued more invites to immigrate than it did in the previous PNP draw. The minimum CRS score needed for Express Entry candidates has increased slightly.

On December 14, Alberta invited 150 Express Entry applicants to file for a provincial nomination, an increase from the last round of invitations.

The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) welcomed candidates who scored at least 351 on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), which is a high score for an Alberta draw. In 2021, the majority of minimum cutoff scores were around 300.

Under the Alberta Express Entry stream, invited candidates may be eligible for a provincial nomination. They will be one step closer to permanent residency in Canada if they receive the nomination. The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) allows provincial candidates to apply for federal immigration to Canada. Candidates who get provincial nominations for Express Entry are prioritized at the top of the pool and are more likely to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence.

In the last Alberta draw, 100 applicants with CRS scores of at least 350 were invited.
