In order to facilitate immigration, the Alberta province announced new rules on Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP).

The changes focused on certain categories of workers intending to settle in the province, including Food Services Industry Pilot Project and Strategic Recruitment Category.

Accordingly, more allocations will be added to Food Services Industry Pilot Project from November 28th, 2013. Workers of Alberta employers who are eligible for the project may nominate up to 20% of their total workforce per restaurant location for immigration.

Post-Graduate Worker Category now becomes a part of Strategic Recruitment Category of the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program.

Under the new rules, international graduates working in Alberta may be eligible to apply for nomination without an employer-supported application if the individuals graduated from eligible Canadian institutions.

In addition, the eligible applicants must hold a valid post-graduation work permit, and their occupation must be considered either skilled or semi-skilled.
