Alberta Advantage Immigration Program (AAIP): New Rules, Requirements & Eligibility

For skilled people who want to live and work in Alberta, Canada, there is a pathway called the AAIP. In this blog, we examine the requirements for eligibility and offer helpful advice on how to apply with ease.

For temporary foreign workers who are already employed full-time in Alberta, there is the Alberta Opportunity Stream of the Alberta Provincial Nominee Program. In February 2022, Alberta changed the name of the PNP to the Alberta Advantage Immigration Program (AAIP). Formerly known as the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AAIP)

Out of the 5,393 nominations allotted for 2024, AAIP has so far issued 2,245 nominations in total. According to the most current AAIP update, 430 applications will be accepted for the June 11 application intake for the Alberta Opportunity Stream. After 430 applications are received, the stream will close until its next planned intake date of July 9, at which point it will accept 444 applications.

As of right now, 3,659 applications are being processed by AAIP, which is evaluating applications submitted before October 26, 2023.

Language Requirements

You must provide proof that you passed the following language tests in either French or English when you submit your application. Based on a single test result, you must receive the necessary points at the time of application filing. The formal test results ought to be no older than two years.

The age of your test results is determined by the date you took the exam, not the date your results were sent. The app won’t take a language exam enrollment confirmation instead of a test score.

Occupation Requirements

Eligible Occupations

You must be employed in an eligible profession in Alberta at the time your application is reviewed, and at the time you submit it. Both a job offer and your prior work experience are subject to the occupation requirements. The majority of jobs in Tiers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 of the National Occupational Classification (NOC) are qualified

Postgraduation Work Permit Holders

In Alberta, if you hold a Post-Graduation Work Permit, your employment must be related to your academic program. If starting on April 1, 2019, you enrolled in an Alberta credential program and successfully finished a one-year post-diploma or post-bachelorate certificate approved by the Advanced Education Board, then your occupation must also be relevant to your previous postsecondary field of study conducted outside of Canada.
