Minimum required CRS score increased to 425
The government of Alberta has released the details of the latest invitation round through its Express Entry-linked provincial nomination stream that took place on July 5.
July 5th draw issued a total of 180 Notifications of Interest (NOIs) to Express Entry candidates with a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores of 425.
The Alberta Express Entry Stream allows the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) to search the federal Express Entry pool for candidates who meet the stream’s eligibility criteria. In order to be considered for a provincial nomination through the Alberta Express Entry Stream, the first step is to enter a profile in the Express Entry pool.
Although a job offer or previous work experience in Alberta is not required to apply under Alberta Express Entry Stream, but the AINP says it may give priority to candidates with:
- a job offer and/or work experience in Alberta;
- a degree from a Canadian post-secondary institution and a valid job offer; or
- a parent, child or sibling already living in Alberta.
AINP does not provide a list of eligible occupations.
The AINP has now issued a total of 3,996 NOIs in 17 draws it held so far this year through Alberta Express Entry Stream.
The minimum CRS score of 425 was the highest so far for an Alberta Express Entry Stream draw since the province has selected Express Entry candidates with scores as low as 300 through this Stream on four occasions in 2019. Three invitations round had a cut-off CRS score of 301 while the one other had a minimum CRS score of 302.
