About Semi-Skilled Worker Category of the Alberta AINP

Posted in Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program

The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Programs takes into account many different occupation types while fulfilling immediate needs of the province. The Semi-Skilled Worker category of the Alberta Immigrant Nominee program takes into account those who have been working in Alberta for an eligible employer in a number of in demand industries currently in the province.

Akrami & Associates will guide you every step of the way with this. Contact us for more details.

If you intend on submitting your application without the support of a representative, there are a couple of factors you should keep in mind.

Language Testing

As with most applications you will need to demonstrate your proficiency in either English or French. You will need this to demonstrate to an officer that you will be able to communicate effectively in your work. This too will help you adjust better to life in Canada and assist you in adapting to Canadian culture.

You will need to provide the results of an eligible language test. The tests that are acceptable are:

  • - CELPIP (Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program) General Test
  • - IELTS (International English Language Testing System) General Test
  • - TEF (Test d'Évaluation de Français)

Depending on the test you take, the scoring rubric is different. For example, the minimum score for the CELPIP exam is 2H for listening while the minimum score, in the same category, for the IELTS test is 4.5.

Employment Letter

Your employer will need to submit an employment reference letter so that you may submit this with your application. Make certain that the reference letter meets the standards and definitions in order to be considered acceptable. It should be signed, date and on company letterhead. Further, it should touch on the following matters:

  • General Holidays and General Holiday Pay
  • Hours of Work, Rest Periods and Days of Rest
  • Maternity and Parental Leave
  • Minimum Wage
  • Overtime Hours and Overtime Pay
  • Payment of Earnings
  • Reservists Leave
  • Termination of Employment and Termination Pay
  • Vacations and Vacation Pay

    Reception was very nice and was sure to answer the questions he could but made sure I was taken care of by a rep at the firm. Shabnam was extremely helpful and I will be calling again when I am ready to proceed.

    Shabnam, I wanted to personally thank you for all your hard work and dedication to me and my wife. Our new lives together are all thanks to you. Considering the unique circumstances that initially prevented her, I had lost hope. I will make sure that if anyone I know needs immigration help, I will be sending them your way. Again, I can’t thank you enough.

    Akrami & Associates was extremely professional and the most efficient legal team I have ever had the pleasure of dealing. They responded to my emails quickly, never missed a phone call and explained the process to me in such a way that anyone could understand, even me. Thanks to them, I was able to hire the workers my business needed mush sooner than I had ever expected. You can’t go wrong with them.

    Fantastic news, I entered Canada without a hitch. Once the guard at the border saw the package you had prepared for me, he took about ten minutes and handed me my permit. What I relief! I don’t know why I ever tried this without you guys! Thank you!
