Introduction

This stream is for entrepreneurs who have the financial resources and farm management experience to establish a new or purchase an existing farm in Alberta.

Candidates must submit their application, along with a proposed business plan, to the Alberta Advantage Immigration Program (AAIP) for assessment. The AAIP will consult with Alberta Agriculture and Irrigation to ensure the business plan is feasible and viable, and meets the needs of Alberta’s agriculture industry.

Note: If the AAIP discovers fraud or misrepresentation in an application, a candidate may be banned for up to 5 years from reapplying to the AAIP.

Learn more about eligibility criteria, how to apply, and what to do after you are nominated.

As of October 1, 2020, the AAIP is charging fees for applications and services. Processes for submitting applications and requesting services have changed. Review the Eligibility, How to apply and After you are nominated sections for details.
