After you are nominated

This section is for people who have an AINP nomination and want to know what to do next.

You must apply to CIC for permanent residence using your AINP nomination right away. The sooner you apply, the easier it will be for you to renew your work permit, and the less chance there will be that you need to apply for a nomination extension.

An AINP nomination cannot be used for the federal Express Entry program. If you have created an Express Entry profile, do not indicate that you are an Alberta Provincial Nominee.
