Alberta has now issued 1,209 invitations to Express Entry candidates to apply for a provincial nomination so far in 2021.
Alberta held a new draw on April 6, inviting Express Entry candidates to apply for a provincial nomination.
If the lowest-scoring candidates in the new Alberta draw receive the nomination, their new CRS scores will be 902.
Alberta was allowed to issue 6,250 nomination certificates in 2020. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the province reduced their allocation to 4,000 nominations. All of these nominations were issued by June 2020, which is why there were no draws for the second half of the year.
The AINP has not yet released the number of provincial nomination allocations for Alberta in 2021.
