prior to applying for an employment opportunity, candidates are strongly encouraged to review, understand, and ensure they meet all eligibility requirements (Rural Renewal Stream – Eligibility | Alberta.ca) under the Alberta Advantage Immigration Program.
There are requirements for:
- job experience
- financial security
Candidates are responsible for ensuring they meet the eligibility of the Alberta Advantage Immigration Program (AAIP) Rural Renewal Stream. Please review the terms and conditions for the Rural Renewal Stream. Submission of an application or nomination by the Alberta Advantage Immigration Program does not guarantee you will be issued a permanent resident visa.
