Ten jobs come with longer application processing times

Due to a high number of AAIP applications received in the following occupations, Alberta immigration officials have indicated they may take longer to process:

  • 62020 – food service supervisors
  • 62010 – retail sales supervisors
  • 63200 – cooks
  • 13110 – administrative assistants
  • 12200 – accounting technicians and bookkeepers
  • 73300 – transport truck drivers
  • 21222 – information systems specialists
  • 60020 – retail and wholesale trade managers
  • 65201 – food counter attendants, kitchen helpers and related support occupations
  • 21231 – software engineers and designers

In order to be eligible to receive an NOI under the Alberta Express Entry system, candidates must:

  • have an active Express Entry profile in the federal Express Entry pool;
  • have stated an interest in immigrating permanently to Alberta;
  • be working in an occupation that supports Alberta’s economic development and diversification, and;
  • have a minimum CRS score of 300 points.

Factors that may improve a candidate’s chances of receiving an NOI include:

  • a job offer from an Albertan employer and/or work experience in Alberta;
  • having graduated from a Canadian post-secondary institution, and;
  • having a relative residing in Alberta such as a parent, child and/or sibling.

Factors that decrease a candidate’s chances of receiving a notification of interest include having an Express Entry profile due to expire within the next three months and working in an ineligible occupation.
