ALBERTA (AINP)Nomination certificate limits accurate as of March 3, 2021Posted by Info Staff in CIC News, on March 5, 2021
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) sets the limits for nominations the AINP can issue each year. IRCC provided 6,250 nomination certificates to Alberta for 2020. However, as announced in Alberta’s Economic Recovery Plan, the AINP will not be issuing more than 4,000 nomination certificates in 2020, reducing the use of nomination certificates by more than one third.
The AINP has issued all 4,000 certificates for 2020; however, applications in the queue continue to be processed. The AINP will resume issuing nomination certificates in January 2021. The number of nominations that the AINP can issue in 2021 is not yet available.
There are approximately 2,450 Alberta Opportunity Stream applications and 50 expression of interest applications in the Alberta Express Entry pool.
Information on application volumes and processing is available to help you determine the status of your application.
