NEW RULES TO APPLY FOR ALBERTA PNP
Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program
The Alberta PNP, which was established along with other provincial nominee programs from different regions of Canada, has been viewed as one the most popular provincial nominee programs in the country.
The application process and selection process for the PNP is same as that of most other provincial nominee programs and relies significantly on the Express Entry program to find potential candidates for immigration.
Alberta PNP New Rules
The Alberta Immigration authority deals primarily with the entry of immigrants from across the world into the province. Indians who are looking to move to Canada and settle in the province will need to go through the proper channels that are available for immigration.
Alberta has made some recent changes in its rules which pertain to immigration with dependents and especially with respect to dependent children. The minimum age for being categorized as a child has now been extended to 22 years whereas earlier the age limit was 19 years.
This move has been heartily welcomed by the international diaspora and is a significant first step towards more positive changes in the immigration policy of the province as well as the country.
