Work Permits Needed for AINP Nomination By Russ Weninger Calgary Immigration Lawyer

slide 2:

Within the last couple of years many temporary foreign workers TFWs have applied for nomination under the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program AINP which is Alberta’s provincial nominee program.

slide 3:

Provincial nominee programs PNPs are special immigration programs established pursuant to federal-provincial agreements. Under the PNP system a province can nominate a certain number of applicants for permanent residence each year.

slide 4:

There is a backlog of applications for AINP nomination. Under the agreement with Citizenship and Immigration Canada the Alberta government can nominate 5500 applicants a year.  The existing number of applications sitting in the queue likely exceeds the Alberta quota for two full years.

slide 5:

This does not mean that it is a bad idea to apply for nomination under AINP . For one thing there is no government application fee to apply for provincial nomination. In many cases AINP may be the only viable option for would-be immigrants.

slide 6:

AINP may in fact be a good option for recent foreign graduates who have post- graduate work permits that are valid for 2 to 3 more years. These former international students may be able to ride out the long waiting period that may be expected for a typical AINP application.

slide 7:

AINP requires you to have a valid work permit at the time of nomination. If you no longer have a valid work permit when AINP wishes to nominate you your application for nomination will be denied.  You should consider exploring other immigration streams and forget about applying under AINP.
