Two new Immigration pathways for International graduates from Alberta post-secondary. 

The Alberta Immigration Nominee Program (AINP) has two new PNPs to encourage international students if they want to start a business in Alberta. These new Immigration pathways will help to create new high-paying jobs and to boost the economy. 

International Graduate Entrepreneur Immigration Stream

The International Graduate Entrepreneur Immigration Stream started from October 26. It is for recent international students who graduate from Alberta post-secondaries. This new Immigration stream will work on Expression of Interest System and is open now for applications. 

Candidates with an Expression of Interest will be assessed by AINP and given points. Candidates with higher points receive an invitation to submit a business application. Candidates with an invitation will be able to reach the AINP portal to start the process. Although the request does not mean that applicants will get Canadian permanent residence.
