Congratulations!

As I understand, Alberta Express Entry Stream is not the same as AINP. You apply for Express Entry and they might call you if they want you in Alberta Express Entry stream and grant you additional 600 points?

My wife is a graduate from an Alberta university and works in Alberta so this might not be a bad shot. She only has around 410 CRS points but if they call her, it would be great.

Are there any additional rules to be aware of? (Type of employment, etc.)
Hey did you get any info on this? is it like if your NOC is in demand in Alberta they will send invitation or you have to have a study or work experience from Alberta only then you are eligible ?

No, you don't have to have studied in Alberta or even have any connection to the province to get NOI, having these things would obviously mean better chances but they are not a selection criteria. The major criteria in my view is your NOC, and again your CRS score too, because the applicants with the highest CRS in your NOC would get invited obviously.
I am an outlander, never been to Canada, no ties to the province, NOC 2132. Already received my COPR after getting nominated by Alberta.
