Alberta has expanded its PNP to allow for more employer nominations in a wider range of occupations. If an Alberta employer obtains a nomination for a foreign worker, that foreign worker may become a permanent resident of Canada on an expedited basis as compared to the regular federal skilled worker program

The number of available nominations will increase dramatically. The eligible occupations have been expanded to include manufacturing occupations, long haul truck drivers, food and beverage processing workers, and tourism industry jobs such as food and beverage servers and hotel room attendants

In addition, foreign students who have obtained a diploma, degree or credential from a public post-secondary institution in Canada, or from a private institution authorized to grant degrees in Alberta, may now qualify where they have an offer of permanent full-time employment in Alberta
