Here is an update related to the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program.
January 27, 2016
Effective immediately, the temporary pause on application intake has ended and the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) is now accepting new applications under all AINP streams and categories. During the pause, the AINP was successful in reducing the application queue by almost half, with fewer than 5,000 applications remaining to be processed.
Current applicants to the AINP with existing applications will remain in the queue awaiting assessment. Please visit the AINPprocessing and inventory page for regular updates on application processing and inventory status.
In order to manage the volume of applications going forward, we may stop accepting new applications in the future if the program is oversubscribed. We will monitor the program closely and look for opportunities to improve the program as necessary in the future. Any updates to the program will be posted on this website.
Applications postmarked before January 27, 2016 will be returned.
