Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program reopening

Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program reopening

See below for information AINP released regarding the reopening of the program:

Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program reopening

as of January 27, 2016, the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) pause on new application intake is over. The AINP is now accepting new applications under all streams and categories.

During the temporary pause on application intake, the AINP was successful in reducing the queue by almost half, with fewer than 5,000 applications still remaining to be processed.

In order to manage the volume of applications going forward, AINP may stop accepting new applications in the future if the program is oversubscribed. AINP will monitor the program closely and look for opportunities to improve the program as necessary in the future.

Individuals who had applied to the AINP before the pause do not need to reapply and their existing application will remain in the queue awaiting assessment. Applicants can visit AlbertaCanada.com/processingtime regularly for updates on AINP application processing and inventory status.

Please contact us with any questions you may have.
