Immigrating to Alberta with a EE-CRS score of 300
Alberta has announced 14 rounds of invitation through its Express Entry-linked immigration programs so far in 2019.
A total of 3,357 Notifications of Interest were sent out. Express Entry applicants who have been issued the Notifications of Interest can receive an additional 600 points toward their CRS ranking score, which will basically guarantee the applicant’s permanent residency status.
Of the 14 rounds of invitation in 2019, three rounds invited EE candidates with CRS scores as low as 300, which is lower a lot than the lowest score drawn through a Federal EE draw so far this year. Also, a CRS 300 points is the minimum required score for a provincial nomination in Alberta.
To be nominated by Alberta, the applicant must be eligible for one of the three Federal Economic Immigration programs: Federal Skilled Worker Program; Federal Skilled Trades Program; or Canadian Experience Class, and create a profile in the EE pool.
Although a job offer and previous study or work experience in Alberta is not required to be eligible for a provincial nomination, the candidate with a strong connection with the province may be prioritized for a Notifications of Interest. The strong connection can include the factors like have an Alberta job offer or work experience, graduated from a Canadian post-secondary institution or have relative that is living in Alberta.
