February 15, 2024: Alberta Opportunity Stream intake pause

The Alberta Advantage Immigration Program (AAIP) has temporarily halted the intake of applications for the Alberta Opportunity Stream until further notice.

Applications already submitted for the Alberta Opportunity Stream before the pause will continue to be assessed by the AAIP. However, any draft applications within the AAIP portal that were not submitted before the pause, even those awaiting final fee payment, will not be considered.

This pause is necessary for the program to address its current backlog and to concentrate its immigration nominations on priority areas, such as addressing labor shortages in critical sectors like healthcare, technology, construction, agriculture, tourism, hospitality, and other high-demand fields.

The AAIP will also be implementing measures to effectively manage future application volumes in line with program priorities while ensuring reasonable service standards are maintained across all its streams.
