Alberta Launched New Accelerated Tech Pathway For Express Entry Candidates!

Last Updated On 25 February 2023, 7:12 PM EST (Toronto Time)

Alberta launched Accelerated Tech Pathway under Alberta Express Entry Stream. This new pathway will aim at expediting processing of selected candidates.

Potential candidates must either be currently working with or have a job offer from Alberta-based tech industry in 38 NOC codes and some of them are not purely tech jobs.

The Alberta Express Entry Stream has 3 steps:

  1. Candidates must have an Express Entry profile with the Government of Canada to be considered under this stream.
    • Candidates interested in applying under the Accelerated Tech Pathway must send information about their Express Entry profile and their Alberta employment or job offer with an Alberta tech employer to the AINP by filling out an online form.
    • All other candidates of the Express Entry stream must receive a Notification of Interest (NOI) letter from AINP in their Government of Canada Express Entry profile. Candidates must email a copy of this NOI letter to the AINP and state they are interested in applying to the AINP.
  2. The AINP determines if candidates meet the minimum eligibility criteria to apply. Candidates who meet minimum eligibility criteria will receive an email inviting them to submit an application.
  3. Candidates determine if they meet assessment criteria and submit an application. Complete applications go into a pool of eligible applications for consideration for processing.
