Alberta PNP Express Entry stream

The Express Entry stream of Alberta PNP is aligned to the federal Express Entry system and so the candidate must first create an Express Entry profile in order to be considered under the stream. No job offer or previous work experience in Alberta is required for candidates to be eligible. However, they should be working in an occupation that supports the economic development and diversification priorities of the province of Alberta. Alberta does not have a list of eligible occupations.
The Express Entry stream of Alberta PNP gives priority to candidates with:

  • A job offer and/or work experience in Alberta;
  • A degree from a Canadian post-secondary institution and a valid job offer; or
  • A parent, child or sibling already living in Alberta.

Alberta PNP has conducted a total of 28 draws through its Express Entry stream ever since the stream was launched a year ago. A total of 5503 NoIs have been issued through these draws. In 2019 alone, Alberta has invited a total of 3,868 Express Entry candidates so far.
