Alberta immigration policy will change due to pandemic

Premier Kenney shared some ideas on upcoming Alberta immigration policy changes in the Facebook live session (video: starting at 39:00) of May 20, 2020.

In light of travel restrictions and economic recession, the province cannot welcome many newcomers anymore. Consequently, he encourages employers to hire Albertans first. Yet, the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP), an economic immigration program, is still accepting and processing applications for provincial nominations.

Temporary changes to the Alberta immigration process

On April 29, 2020, the AINP modified the Alberta immigration procedure slightly to offer flexible measures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Submitting applications: The AINP only accepts paper applications by mail; but does not require originals.

Assessment of applications: The AINP holds incomplete applications for 60 days.

Quality over quantity

How to inspire Albertan employers to hire locals?

The Government of Alberta always appreciated the flexibility of policy over the rigidity of law. Thus, fine tuning the Alberta immigration policy on an as-needed basis is a realistic approach. After all, a nation is built from within – and not from outside.

It is high time to show some Albertan pride when producing beef and wheat for export. The expertise is here! No need to look elsewhere. All that is necessary for the economy to grow is a mindful shift from quantity to quality. That is why less is more. Quality has its price and people are willing to pay for it. Think Switzerland! Still, innovation is key – employers have to figure out a way to execute an idea better than their global competitors. Albertans’ amazing entrepreneurial spirit will guide them in the successful direction of economic growth yet again.
