About The Alberta Immigration Nominee Program
Alberta express entry is a stream of the Alberta Immigration Nominee Program
which also is a Provincial Nominee Program that is operated by the province of Alberta.
The express entry stream selects candidates from the federal express entry pool ( Alberta express entry draw system )and it also invites them to apply for nomination by province.
A major number of the participating provinces and territories at least have one PNP system that is aligned with the federal express entry system.
All this is just to reduce the backlog as well as processing delays that are currently affecting the resident application. In January the IRCC had held two Alberta express entry draws
and has also invited more than 1400 PNP candidates who fell under the express entry program.
