Alberta has added occupations to its PNP in the hospitality and manufacturing areas.
In the hospitality sector, the occupation of "Front Desk Agent/Clerk" has been added so that employers may now nominate foreign candidates in that occupation for permanent resident status. Eligible employers who are members of the Alberta Hotel and Lodging Association may also nominate "Food and Beverage Servers" and "Room Attendants" under the Alberta PNP.
The PNP has also expanded its list of semi-skilled manufacturing occupations, adding "Manufactured Housing Production Worker" and "Prefabricated Housing Assembler" (NOC 9493). A complete list of manufacturing occupations that may be eligible for consideration under the PNP is set out below.
