How to immigrate to Edmonton under the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)

1. You must first be nominated by the province of Alberta for the Provincial Nominee Program. You may either have a job offs run Alberta, have a job in Alberta, have a close relative in Alberta who will sponsor you or be a self-employed farmer.

2. Ensure you meet all of the requirements for your particular Alberta Provincial Nominee Program category. There are several categories and all have certain requirements. By ensuring you meet the requirements, your application will be processed faster and not returned to you because of an error.

3. Fill out and file an application for permanent residence with Citizenship and Immigration Canada. Ensure that you fill out this application properly and thoroughly and include all relevant information to your qualifications under the Provincial Nominee Program.

4. Have a licensed immigration lawyer review your application and your circumstances – spaces in the Alberta Provincial Nominee Program are limited. There is also only a certain time they are accepted throughout the year, so it’s important that you time your application properly and get it filed before the deadline hits or the cap is reached- whichever comes first.
