Put your new education or training to work in Alberta. Depending on the type of higher education study you complete, programs could be available to help you become a permanent resident in Canada after you earn your credential.
Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program
Immigration programs are offered by the province and federal government. Your studies in Alberta may qualify you for permanent residency as an International Graduate through the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program. You can apply on your own or through your employer.
Successful applications must pass these three steps:
You apply to the province or territory where you want to live and be nominated.
The province or territory reviews your application and nominates you and your family for permanent residency.
You apply to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) for permanent residence. A CIC officer will then assess your application based on Canadian immigration rules.
