Alberta launching two new Immigration Options for International Students

Author: Swift Connect |


Alberta has two brand new immigration options to immigrate to Canada. It will be available for international graduates from Alberta post-secondary institutions.

The major objectives of these immigration pathways are to support international graduates to open businesses in Alberta that will help to create high-paying jobs and help to increase Canada's economy.

International Graduate Entrepreneur Immigration Stream

The International Graduate Entrepreneur Immigration Stream is beginning October 26. This new Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is for recently graduated international students from Alberta post-secondaries. The new immigration stream works on an Expression of Interest framework, which is currently open to submissions.

Competitors who submit an Expression of Interest will be examined by the AINP and provided points. The most elevated positioning candidates will get an invitation to submit a Business Application. Just competitors who get the greeting, or Request, to apply will have the option to get to the AINP portal and start the process. Getting a Request isn't an assurance that candidates will get Canadian permanent residence.

Foreign Graduate Start-up Visa Stream

In January 2021, Alberta is launching the Foreign Graduate Start-Up Visa Stream. This program is for the international student graduates from highly ranked US universities and colleges, who are willing to start a business and settle in Alberta. The complete information about this program is yet to be published and hopefully, it will be available later this year.
