The draw on November 24 was tied for the smallest of the year, with the second-highest CRS requirement.

On November 24, Alberta welcomed 100 Express Entry applicants to file for a provincial nomination.

Given that the majority of this year's Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) draws have welcomed more than 200 candidates at a time, it was a relatively smaller draw. In January, just one other draw was smaller than 100, and the least was 50.

The minimum score necessary for an Alberta draw was also rather high, at 350 points. Only one other draw this year, in January, had a higher cut-off score of 360.

The number of nominations that Alberta can provide each year is established by the federal immigration agency, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). Alberta will be able to provide 6,250 nomination certificates in 2021. Alberta has granted 6,094 nomination certificates so far this year. This might explain why the draw was so tiny, given the scarcity of nomination certificates.

According to the government website, there are roughly 400 Alberta Opportunity Stream applications and 825 expressions of interest in the Alberta Express Entry pool as of December 7.
