The planned changes, including the January start date, is postponed in order for the government to continue conversations with affected stakeholders. Prospective applicants can continue to apply under the existing streams.
Effective January 2, 2018, the Alberta Immigration Nominee Program (AINP) will be making changes to its streams. The AINP will reduce the number of streams available. These changes will simplify application processes, reduce wait times, and make it fairer for applicants across all sectors and industries in Alberta. The AINP will also be more responsive to emerging labour market needs while supporting the goal of building a skilled, permanent workforce and a more diversified economy.
