Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP)

Since the announcement by the Government of Alberta on January 27, 2016 about the opening of Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP), I have been receiving a lot of inquiries about the program.  Oftentimes, the statement would be like "I was told by my relative that Alberta is now accepting applications for AINP and that I should apply immediately".  But they will end up disappointed after I tell them how the program works.

Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP)
Banff, Alberta, Canada (May 2015)


So I thought of writing about Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) and to guide those planing to immigrate to Canada. So here it goes...

In a nut shell, you are not eligible to apply for permanent residence in Canada under AINP if you:

  • are presently not in Alberta and with a valid work permit, or
  • don't have a valid job offer from an employer in Alberta or
  • don't have financial resources and farm management experience to establish a farm in Alberta
How to qualify and get a permanent residence in Canada via Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP)?

First, you need to be Canada ready. Get your documents ready. This includes properly documenting your identity, education, training, work experience and language proficiency.  As to how you will be able to do it, you may visit Citizenship and Immigration Canada website (http://cic.gc.ca) and you can get the information you need for FREE.

But if you think you need help, you may take our FREE Online Assessment or attend one of our information seminar/orientation schedules.

    Has the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program ended?


    There are rumors circuating around that the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP) will be ending this year. I often receive this kind of question about MPNP.

    Has the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program ended?

    If you have questions about Canada's immigration programs, always consult the official website first. That's what I did and here's the answer I found:
    No. The MPNP does not end. There is no deadline date to submit applications.


    Ok. The site's FAQ may not be updated. Now, consider what I've found from Labour Market Bulletin - Manitoba (May 2010):

    The province has announced that it will increase the minimum wage by 50 cents an hour to $9.50 on October 1. The Manitoba Labour Federation was advocating for an increase of 75 cents an hour effective April 1, while business leaders were advocating for either an increase of no more than 30 cents or no increase at all. Manitoba created almost 7,000 jobs in April, increasing from 612,200 employed to 619,000 over the month.

    The unemployment rate for Manitoba in April was 4.9%, up from the 4.6% unemployment rate for April 2009, while the labour force participation rate increased from 68.9% to 69.8% in the same time period.

    In 2009, over 12,000 immigrants entered Manitoba, the largest annual immigration total since 1913. This increase from the 3,725 immigrants to Manitoba in 1999 means that immigration levels have tripled in the last decade. This increase has been attributed to the provincial nominee program which was introduced in 1998. The province has a target of increasing immigration to 20,000 immigrants per year 2017.

    Manitoba targets 20,000 immigrants!

    I've been trying to search for official announcements regarding the planned ending of MPNP but without luck. What I do know is that they are still processing applications. In fact, here's a MPNP applicant I have assisted who were issued visa just recently.

    MPNP
    Mr and Mrs Vergara, together with their children will be moving to Canada before the school year begins this year. They were sponsored by Mr. Vergara's former colleague and kumpare.

    To qualify under MPNP General Stream, you need two distant relatives or friends who are ready and willing to support you. In their case, the wife of Mr. Vergara's kumpare served as the 2nd sponsor.

    Mr. and Mrs Vergara are both doing great on their chosen fields. But they still decided to immigrate to Canada because of one thing - they want to prepare a better future for their children. It is a major decision and takes a lot of courage to get out of your comfort zone. But they did it just the same and it's for a noble intention. Hats off to the Vergara couples!

    Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program is still open. File your application now!

    NTNP Guidelines for Critical Impact Worker Guidelines


    The NTNP Critical Impact Worker program is intended to assist Northwest Territories (NWT) employers with critical labour shortages that cannot be filled by local residents. This category is designed to increase the labour pool for entry level jobs (NOC skill levels C & D) in the hospitality and service sector industry to address the critical need of semi-skilled workers in the NWT.

    Employees must have worked in the position for six months under a temporary foreign worker permit. This category will be closely monitored and will remain in place until the labour market for semi-skilled workers within the NWT economy indicates this category is no longer required.

    position using national advertising requirements; and,

  • Obtain a Labour Market Opinion (LMO)

  • A Human Resources Plan that verifies the need to fill the position with a nominee will be evaluated as an asset to the application. The employer is responsible for completion of the application form and for submission of all required documentation to ECE.

  • Be for a permanent full-time position;

  • Be in an occupation that falls into NOC Matrix Skill Levels O, A or B
