The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program reached their maximum allotment of 5,500 nomination certificates for the year 2017.
Any application that has been submitted under this program will be processed, but no further certificates will be issued until 2018. The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program has reported that they currently have 3,500 applications that are in the queue that are waiting to get assessed and processed accordingly.
In the year 2018, there will be two new provincial nomination streams: the Alberta Opportunity stream and the Alberta Express Entry Stream.
The Alberta Opportunity Stream will be a combination of the Employer-Driven Stream and the Strategic Recruitment Stream and 11 sub-categories that will be under one set of eligibility criteria.
The Alberta Express Entry Stream will allow the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program to nominate candidates in the Express Entry pool.
