Abstract: The recent draw conducted by the AAINP invited 100 candidates.


  • A letter of Alberta Notification of Interest implies that the candidate is being considered in this stream.
  • Based on the profile information given in the Express Entry pool, Alberta selects the candidates and sends them a letter of Notification of Interest.
  • The Accelerated Tech Pathway has different requirements for selection, notification, and eligibility for the candidates.

Alberta held a draw under the AAIP or Alberta Advantage Immigration Program on May 19, 2022. The draw sent out 100 letters of Notification of Interest to immigrant candidates.
