As the CRS cut-off falls by 28 points who has an invitation for Alberta PNP nomination in the current draw?

If you have a Notification of Interest (NOI) in this draw then it is because you have:

  • Firstly, have an active profile in the Express Entry (EE) System.
  • Applied to one of the EE categories such as:
    • Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
    • Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)
    • Canadian Experience Class (CEC)
  • Also, meet Human Capital Factors:
    • Age
    • Education
    • Work Experience
    • Language Skills
  • Besides, are eligible for the AAIP Express Entry stream.
  • Finally, match the CRS cut-off and get an NOI.


The moment you get an Alberta PNP nomination against your EE profile, you will get a boost of 600 CRS points in the EE pool. As a result, with an increased CRS score in the pool, your chances of getting an ITA to submit a permanent residency application for Canada will go up.

Such is the benefit of applying for a Canada PR visa via the Express Entry + AAIP PNP pathway. So, what are you waiting for?
