AINP Employer Driven Stream Skilled Worker

Skilled Worker Category applies to individuals who have been offered a permanent, full-time job by an Alberta employer in an eligible occupation.

You are eligible if:

  • you must clearly show that you are able and intend to live permanently in the province of Alberta
  • you must have and be able to show your related education, training, and previous work experience, and any Alberta licensing necessary
  • you must have a valid work permit, and be able to provide a copy of it (that is if you are already working in Alberta)
  • you must be able to show evidence of your legal status in your country of residence if you are not currently working in Alberta
  • if your occupation is in early childhood educators and child care staff, then there is extra criteria that must be met:
    • you must be accredited or have applied for accreditation with the Alberta Association for the Accreditation of Early Learning and Care Services
    • you must hold a work permit under NOC code 4214
    • you must be residing in Alberta
    • you must be certified as a Child Development Worker (Level 2) or Child Development Superviser (Level 3)
      • this is done so through Alberta Human Services – Child Care Staff Certification Office
      • you must also be employed for a minimum of 6 months in Alberta, with a pre-accredited daycare program or family day home agency
      • Occupations not eligible for this are: clergy, elementary and secondary school teachers, professional athletes, and dental laboratory bench workers

As for the employer, the business would have to be incorporated or registered under an act of legislature of a province or the Parliament of Canada and operating a business that has an established production capability, plant or place of business in Alberta. The employer must also provide the applicant with a permanent, full-time job offer in a skilled occupation; this includes an occupation that falls under categories NOC 0, A, or B. The job offer must meet the Alberta employment and wage standard, it may exceed this but must not be less than this. If the job offer conflicts with existing collective bargaining agreements, then the AINP will not approve the application. In addition to this, there must not be any disputes in progress that involve the employer in any way, shape, or form. The employer must be able to show their positive LMIA or prove that they are exempt from the LMIA. Like any application for a foreign worker, the employer must provide proof that he/she has put in a lot of effort to find Canadians or permanent residents to fill the position, but was unsuccessful. Therefore, the employer has many requirements that must be met in order to bring a worker over to Canada permanently.
