5 Categories of the Provincial Nominee Program for Alberta
There are currently eleven provinces and territories that participate in the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), where a Canadian province or territory will nominate an immigrant worker to become a permanent resident of that province or territory.
A nominee is chosen and then the nominee can apply for permanent residence, but all of the provinces and territories have different requirements for becoming a provincial nominee, including the Alberta Provincial Nominee Program.
Categories of the Provincial Nominee Program in Alberta
1. Employer Driven Stream: If you have a job offer from an Alberta employer in a skilled occupation, you could be eligible for the Provincial Nominee Program.
2. The International Graduate Category: For this category, someone who has completed a degree, diploma or graduate program in a Canadian educational institution, has a job in the province and meets several other qualifications can be eligible for the Provincial Nominee Program.
3. Semi-Skilled Workers: Someone who has a full-time and permanent job offer from an employer in the province or territory in a certain category can be eligible for the Provincial Nominee Program.
4. The Family Stream: If you have a relative living in the province or territory who is a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, and you have a certain level of education and work experience, they can sponsor you for the Provincial Nominee Program. Please note there are many strict requirements for this particular stream of the Provincial Nominee Program.
5. Self-Employed Farmers: Self-employed farmers who are purchasing a farming enterprise and who have a proposed plan for the farming enterprise in the province or territory can be eligible for the Provincial Nominee Program if you meet certain financial requirements.
