New Updated Numbers for the Alberta PNP as of January 17, 2023

Alberta PNP (Provincial Nominee Program), officially known as Alberta Advantage Immigration Program (AAIP), updated the information and numbers on their official website on January 17, 2023.

There was no Alberta Express Entry draw after July 2022 for four months. This was due to Alberta issuing all 6,500 nomination certificates allotted by the IRCC for 2022.

However, AAIP updated that they held one draw on December 8, 2022 inviting 129 Express Entry profiles having CRS cut off score 305 and above.

In 2022, AAIP invited 2,449 Express Entry profiles. The lowest CRS cut off score was 305 in the December 2022 draw, and the highest was 473 in the July 2022 draw.

For express entry candidates with a low CRS score, the Alberta PNP is one of the best options.
