On November 24, Alberta held its second-smallest PNP draw for the year with the second-highest CRS cut-off requirement since February.
It has invited 100 candidates under Alberta Express Entry Stream selections.
The minimum score required for the latest draw is high, that is 350. There was another January draw that had a higher cut-off score of 360.
IRCC sets the limits for the number of nominations that Alberta can issue each year. Alberta is allowed to offer 6,250 nomination certificates this year. It has issued 6,094 nomination certificates till now. There are a few nomination certificates left which could be the reason for the small draw by the province.

Alberta Express Entry Stream
This stream allows the AINP to nominate a limited number of qualified candidates from the Federal Express Entry Program.
- Your Express Entry profile must be active in the Federal Express Entry Pool.
- You must meet the eligibility criteria of any one of the federal immigration programs- FSWP, FSTP, or CEC.
- You must intend to live and work in Alberta permanently.
- You must have work experience in an occupation that supports the economic development and diversification goals of the province.
- You must have a minimum CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) score of at least 300.

- You have completed your graduation from a post-secondary educational institution in Canada.
- You have a blood relative (parent, sibling, or child) who is a PR or citizen of Canada living in Alberta.
One of these factors may decrease your chances of getting a nomination from Alberta:
- Your Express Entry profile is about to expire in 5 months or less.
- You work in an occupation that is listed on the Alberta ineligible occupations list or has a high volume of submissions across all streams of AINP.
