The Province of Alberta Canadahas an Express Entry program launched in June 2018. This program allows the province to select from the provincial candidates the cases that have active profiles in the Express Entry system. Alberta automatically tracks profiles on FedEx Entry. While the exact criteria for this selection are not known, AINP says it will look for candidates who have strong ties to Alberta and can support economic development and diversity in the region.

Express Entry candidates who receive their provincial nominee through this app will receive a 600-point increase in their Comprehensive Rating System (CRS) score, which almost guarantees that they will receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Receive permanent residence in Canada in the next stage of their Express Entry.
