In the realm of Canadian immigration, the month of August witnessed a dynamic series of events as the Alberta Advantage Immigrant Program (AAIP) orchestrated six consecutive Express Entry draws. The AAIP, with its astute vision, delved into the IRCC’s (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada) Express Entry pool, meticulously selecting candidates who align with the Alberta PNP’s (Provincial Nominee Program) diverse streams.
Throughout the span of August, the Alberta Express Entry draws cast a spotlight on a total of 647 candidates who were extended Invitations to Apply (ITAs). These six invitation rounds were not only a testament to Alberta’s commitment to fostering immigration but also a testament to its keenness to attract individuals who could contribute to the province’s growth story. The common thread that united these candidates was their adherence to a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 303—a score that epitomizes their alignment with Alberta’s aspirations.
