Alberta's linked Express Entry stream was introduced in June, and for the first time, it has released a list of qualified candidates. Since June, there have been seven draws so far and the first, which was also the largest, held on the 6th of July with a very low minimum ranking score of 302. Through the Alberta's Express Entry System, its Immigrant Nominee Program can look for qualified candidates who satisfy all the requirements stated by the stream in the Federal Express Entry System and offer them Invitations to apply for the Permanent Residence status. Express Entry System oversees all the candidates under Canada's three High Skilled Economic Immigration classes, which are Federal Skilled Trades Category, Federal Skilled Worker Category and Canadian Experience Class. If an Express Entry candidate has a provincial nomination, 600 points will be added to their Comprehensive Ranking Score, thus assuring them of an invitation to apply for Permanent Residence from the Canadian government. Factors used for grading candidates include proficiency in the language, age, work experience in a skilled trade, education. The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) has stated that for a candidate to qualify under its Express Entry program, he or she must have a comprehensive ranking score of at least 300 points and must be working in a job that supports the economic diversification and development of the province. A Candidate who has an offer of Employment or work experience in Alberta, or has a child, parent or sibling who lives in the province, or has acquired a degree from a higher institution in Alberta would be preferentially considered for a Notification of Interest. Also, candidates should have submitted their profiles even to be considered in this stream. The AINP has warned that if a candidate submits a Profile to the Express Entry Stream and it expires on or before three months to the stipulated draw date, such applicants may not be considered.
