Candidates at the Alberta Express Entry Stream should receive authorization from AINP to get the brand new portal.

The AINP says, in a media release, that the portal was designed to make immigration applications easier. Candidates applying for one of Alberta’s Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) get suggestions about the best way best to enter data, a customized list of documents, and they’re able to save a draft to complete their program at another moment.

Here are a few of these changes implemented from the AINP :

Fees for the portal

Applications submitted to the state utilizing the online portal site are subject to a $500 processing fee. This fee is non refundable once an application has been submitted. The charge covers the cost of processing the application and is required whether candidates get a provincial nomination or not.

Candidates who applied for the Alberta Opportunity Stream or Alberta Express Entry Stream by email on or before October 1 do not have to pay the commission.

Self-Employed Farmer Stream applicants that submitted their applications by email after October 1 has to pay the commission.

New fees for post-decision services

All requests for post-decision services should now be emailed, the AINP says.

Requests for services which were sent to the government on or after October 1 are currently subject to a $100 service charge.

Letters of Service will no longer be issued with a nomination and must be requested by the PNP recipient. Provincial nominees who have a written request from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada to get a letter of support do not have to pay the fee.

Fees cover the price of processing requests, and are required even if candidates aren’t eligible to have their nominations extended, or even to get a letter of support. Refunds will only be awarded for requests for reconsideration where the original rejection is reversed. The rest of the service charges are non-refundable.

Update Applications by email

Application updates will have to be sent by email, even if candidates employed by mail. Candidates should now send mails to inform the AINP concerning :

  1. Corrections or updates to information or documents in an application
  2. upgrades to employment status, immigration status, contact information, or family composition
  3. updates to use of a third party representative; or even
  4. application withdrawal

Coronavirus measures

Alberta has made some of the subsequent changes to their temporary coronavirus measures

    The AINP will no longer accept incomplete applications. Incomplete applications mailed on or after October 1 or submitted in the online portal will be diminished.

    All candidates who’ve lost their job after applying to the AINP, irrespective of the date they applied, and all nominees, will have around six months in the time their application is assessed to locate a new job which meets AINP criteria. This employment requirement must be met in the time that an application is submitted or sent. This change gives more opportunity to fulfill AINP employment criteria and expands the time to find employment by around four weeks for applicants and nominees. Formerly, nominees and choose candidates were given up to 60 days to find qualifying employment.

The AINP told CIC News the new portal is meant to decrease red tape, and make a more “streamlined application process for candidates.”
