This page outlines changes and updates related to the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program.

January 27, 2016

Effective immediately, the temporary pause on application intake has ended and the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) is now accepting new applications under all AINP streams and categories. During the pause, the AINP was successful in reducing the application queue by almost half, with fewer than 5,000 applications remaining to be processed.

Current applicants to the AINP with existing applications will remain in the queue awaiting assessment. Please visit the AINP processing and inventory page for regular updates on application processing and inventory status.

In order to manage the volume of applications going forward, we may stop accepting new applications in the future if the program is oversubscribed. We will monitor the program closely and look for opportunities to improve the program as necessary in the future. Any updates to the program will be posted on this website.

Applications postmarked before January 27, 2016 will be returned.

August 27, 2015

Effective immediately, the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) will not be accepting new applications under any AINP Streams or Categories until January 27, 2016. This temporary pause will help the AINP assess existing applications in the queue and prevent the queue from growing further. The pause will also provide an opportunity to make improvements to the program.

Complete applications postmarked on or before August 27, 2015, will be accepted for processing. AINP staff will continue to assess applications already in the queue. Visit the AINP processing and inventory page for regular updates on application processing and inventory status.

Applications postmarked after August 27, 2015, will be returned.
