The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) has reduced work experience requirements in its Semi-Skilled Worker stream.

Effective immediately, applicants to the Manufacturing Industry sub-division of the Semi-Skilled Worker stream are eligible to apply if they have two years of work experience in a job similar to the job they will be working in Alberta. At least one year of work must be completed in Canada.

The AINP is one of many Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) in Canada. Most Canadian provinces run their own PNP, which allows the province to nominate foreign nationals for Canadian Permanent Residency. Provinces are able to tailor their PNPs to target individuals with skills and experience that are in high demand in the region.

The AINP has streams for the following individuals:

  • Engineers
  • Tradespeople
  • Skilled Workers
  • International Graduates
  • Semi-Skilled Workers
  • Self-Employed Farmers
