Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program expands to include family members

Edmonton... In an effort to build the province?s workforce, the government is expanding its Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) to include family members.

?Albertans have family members with skills and knowledge Alberta needs,? said Hector Goudreau, Minister of Employment and Immigration. ?Adding this family stream to the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program will help us meet our workforce needs while creating more diverse and welcoming communities for all our families.?

Eligible Albertans may sponsor a parent, child, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, niece or nephew for provincial nomination. The family members coming to Alberta will have to meet provincial eligibility criteria and be able to join Alberta?s labour market. They must have post-secondary education, work experience, and be between 21 and 45 years old. Applicants do not need to have a job before they apply. The sponsoring family member living in Alberta will act as a vital support system to help the newcomers while they settle in.

The AINP fast-tracks the immigration process for people applying for permanent residency. Applicants will then need to go through the standard federal security and health checks. Citizenship and Immigration Canada makes the final decision on permanent resident visas.

By expanding the program and increasing the number of people living in Alberta, there will be a larger labour force pool employers can draw from. The program is designed to meet the needs of Alberta employers who are unable to fill skilled and select semi-skilled positions with Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada.

looks more like a fast track skilled worker program. I will be curious how many people actually qualify.
