The most recent CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) cutoff score announcement for the Alberta Express Entry Stream is 357 or above.
Today (February 28), the Alberta Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), also known as AAIP, updated the information regarding this draw (Alberta Advantage Immigration Program).
On February 16, 2023, however, AAIP held this draw, inviting a total of 100 participants.
With this information, Alberta PNP has once again come into applicants’ sights because it typically announces low CRS cutoff scores under the Express Entry stream.
Normally, the Alberta Express Entry stream receives 50% of the total AAIP allotment. And starting on January 18, 2023, half of this is now set aside for Express Entry profiles with a family link in the province.
Moreover, Fast Entry profiles can be selected for the Alberta draw with just a 300 CRS score.
The extra elements taken into account by AAIP determine whether you will receive an invitation in an Alberta draw.
