In latest draw AINP CRS score slips to 300
On May 13, 2020, AINP CRS score slips to 300 again. This is a positive sign which indicates that the CRS score might fall lower or at least stay put at 300.
Alberta issued 191 Invitation to Apply (ITA) to qualifying applicants for nomination to apply for permanent residence in Canada. To qualify in this draw the applicants needed a CRS score of 300. Further, if these Alberta Express Entry (EE) applicants receive a nomination then they will receive an extra 600 CRS score. This guarantees that they will surely receive an ITA to apply for a Canada PR.
Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) is Alberta’s very own immigration program. It helps the province select and retain skilled workers who have the skills and experience to grow the province. In case, you receive an ITA in the May 13 AINP draw then it means:
- Firstly, you have an active EE profile
- Secondly, you have a CRS score of 300 or more
- Also, you have a job offer in an in-demand occupation in Alberta
One must note that Alberta does not specify a list of in-demand occupations for qualifying in its draws. But it does share that it will favour the selection of applicants who:
- Firstly, have a job offer and or work experience in Alberta
- Secondly, have a Canadian post-secondary degree and a valid job offer; or
- Further have a parent, child or sibling living in Alberta.
Looking at the past AINP draws the AINP CRS score slips to 300. This is evident from April 1 (CRS 381), April 14 (CRS 351), and April 29 (CRS 322) requirement. Further looking at the frequency of Canada immigration draws we can expect the CRS score to either fall or stay put at 300. And this is great news for everyone who wishes to move to Canada, get a Canada job or get permanent residence in Canada.
In 2019, Alberta invited 6,884 applicants whereas up till now it has selected 1,598 applicants. This number is only expected to go up.
