Alberta PNP offers an opportunity to get Canada PR with low CRS score

Low Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score requirement remains the concern for the express entry candidates. However, you can raise your point score through AINP- Express Entry stream. The AINP is one of Canada's most popular Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs), which invite the candidates even with a relatively low point score.

If you apply in this Alberta PNP stream and nominated for Canadian PR visa by Alberta province, you become eligible to receive 600 extra CRS points in your Express Entry account. This significant addition of points makes your overall CRS score eligible to get the ITA (Invitation to apply) for Canadian Permanent Residency (PR) visa from Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
