The score is awarded out of 1200 and it is based on this score, the candidates are ranked. Canada conducts Express Entry draws in every two weeks.

Alberta Express Entry stream

The Alberta Express Entry stream is aligned to the federal Express Entry system. Those who receive a provincial nomination from Alberta will have 600 additional CRS score points added to their total score and that guarantee them an invitation to apply for permanent residence in Canada in the subsequent federal Express Entry draw.
To be eligible to receive a nomination under the Alberta Express Entry stream, the candidate must have work experience in an occupation that supports the economic development and diversification priorities of Alberta. The occupation must not also be featured in the list of occupations that Alberta does not consider for nomination.
The federal government of Canada increased the number of occupations which are not eligible for a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) in Alberta, on November 1, 2020. But those who have received a notification of interest before the said date can apply for provincial nomination, even if their occupation is featured from the list of occupations for which LMIA will not be processed.
In 2020, the number of nominations allocated to Canada was 6250. But it was reduced to 4000 owing to the impact of COVID-19. All these nominations were issued by June 2020. The number of nominations allocated to Alberta for the year 2021 is yet to be revealed.
