As per the latest figures, Alberta immigration has issued about 72% of its 2018 nomination quota. The Alberta Immigration province states, out of 5,600 federal government allocation about 4,010 nomination certificate are issued.
Presently about 3,300 applications are awaiting for assessment, in other words, most of those who are deemed to be eligible would not be receiving the nomination until the year 2019.
The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) states, apart from the quality of the application, the processing times are greatly impacted by the labour market needs, the number of application received and the date of the application.

On 14th June 2018, the Alberta Opportunity stream and Alberta Express Entry stream became active and they successfully replaced the Employer-Driven Stream as well as Strategic Recruitment stream.
