Alberta outperforms the rest of the country when it comes to the best locations to live in Canada.
Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) is an economic immigration program that nominates people for permanent residence in Alberta. Nominees must have skills to fill job shortages or be planning to buy or start a business in Alberta. They must also be able to provide for their families. The program is run by the governments of Alberta and Canada.
If you are nominated through the program, you may apply for permanent residence status together with your spouse or common-law partner, and dependent children.
An AINP nomination is available to qualified applicants who live and work in Alberta and have a job offer from an Alberta business.
Temporary foreign employees who are already working full-time in Alberta and have a full-time job offer from an Alberta employer in an appropriate occupation are eligible for the Alberta Opportunity Stream (AOS). Candidates must have a positive Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) or be in possession of one of the approved LMIA exemption work permits.
Other minimal eligibility criteria include residency and work permit type, occupation, language, education, Alberta employment offer, and work experience.
