Alberta Province of Canada has finally revealed much awaited details about new Express Entry and Alberta Opportunity streams of its popular PNP, i.e. Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP). Both these AINP streams were expected to launch in January this year, however, for some reasons province delayed the inauguration of their framework. The details are finally revealed by Alberta and both Express Entry and Opportunity stream of AINP are implemented w.e.f. June 14, 2018.
Let's find out more details about the two programs.
AINP- Express Entry Aligned Stream

The new EE stream will allow the province of Alberta to notify the suitable candidates in Express Entry pool to apply in its Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). The federal Express Entry system is the point based online immigration system of Canada that allocate permanent residency to the selected applicants.
It has three key subcategories, i.e. Federal Skilled Worker (FSW), Federal Skilled Trade (FST) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC). The candidates from all three streams find place in Express Entry pool after the primary round.
Benefits of AINP- Express Entry aligned Stream
The candidates, who apply in Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) AINP under Express Entry stream and get selected for nomination, shall become eligible to receive additional 600 CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) points in the express entry. The additional CRS points will make certain the candidates receives the ITA (Invitation to apply) for Canadian Permanent Residency (PR) from IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) in the subsequent Express Entry draw.
The candidates in Express Entry can apply in Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program, if they have received the notification from AINP being in the express entry pool.
