The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) is an immigration program that can be used to gain permanent residency in the province of Alberta. This program nominates people for permanent residence in Alberta. Nominees must have skills to fill job shortages or be planning to buy or start a business in Alberta. They must also be able to provide for their families. There are several programs that one can choose from to obtain permanent residency in Alberta, the most popular being the AINP.
The AINP is a partnership between Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) and the Federal Government that looks out for skilled and semi-skilled foreign nationals who can immediately enter the workforce and benefit the economy.
