AINP Semi-Skilled Worker Category Food and Beverage Processing Industry

The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) offers a variety of attractive options in various categories. If you qualify with one of their streams, you will be given a nomination for that province. You will then use this nomination to obtain your permanent resident status in Canada.

One such stream of the AINP is the Semi-Skilled Worker Category. This category can be further subdivided based on the industry you are or intend to be working in. Each industry must meet the basic requirements and have additional criteria as per the industry.
