The most recent Alberta Express Entry draw of March 2023 announces CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) cutoff score of 301.
The Alberta Advantage Immigration Program (AAIP) also known as Alberta Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) updated the details of this draw on March 14, 2023.
However, AAIP held this draw on March 9, 2023, and sent out a total of 134 invitations to claim provincial nomination.
|Date||Number of Invitations||CRS Cut Off|
|March 9, 2023||134||301|
|February 16, 2023||100||357|
|January 23, 2023||154||385|
|January 19, 2023||46||324|
2023 PNP quota for AAIP has increased by 50% to 9,750 as announced by the Alberta government on February 23.
Typically, Alberta Express Entry receives 50% of overall AAIP allotment. And, beginning of January 18, 2023, half of this amount has been set aside for Express Entry profiles with a familial link in the province.
It is important to note that NOT every Express Entry profile having a CRS score above the declared cut off score is invited by AAIP.
But, receiving an invitation in an Alberta draw is contingent on the extra conditions considered by AAIP. Click here for the additional factors that matter.
