Propositions under Alberta pathway for tech workers


Tyler Shandro defined the pathway and said – “Under this new pathway, tech professionals from across Canada and overseas can become permanent residents in as little as six months if they have a job offer in an in-demand tech industry occupation.”

In case, the tech worker needs a work permit, the Government will also give them a letter of support. Moreover, these applications will get priority in processing and approval. It has a proposition to support the growing demand of 3000 tech companies. Alberta is making a remarkable contribution to the economy through the tech industry, since 2012. Hence, through provincial Express Entry, they want to hire foreign professionals to accomplish the vacancy.

How to apply for the Alberta pathway for tech workers?

The three steps to apply for the Alberta Express Entry pathway are:


Step 1 – Provide information about Express Entry credibility


Fill up the online form for the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program. This will provide complete information about your Express Entry profile.


Step 2 – Getting invitation letter

Step 3 – Final application process

After receiving the invitation letter, you can check your eligibility criteria and then apply, accordingly. Don’t provide any wrong or deceptive information, as that can cease your profile.
