Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program - major program changes

The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program has a new application stream called the Alberta Opportunity Stream (AOS), and an expansion to the occupations and skill levels that can be accepted.

These new changes will better serve workers in Alberta who want to become permanent residents. We have simplified processes, which will reduce wait times and provide fair access for all workers who wish to build lives in Alberta.

In response to the program’s expansion to include most occupations and all skill levels, the federal government requires minimum criteria for language, education and income.

As of June 14, 2018, the AINP will accept applications under two streams:

  • Self-Employed Farmer Stream
  • Alberta Opportunity Stream (new)
