The Rural Renewal Stream supports the attraction and retention of newcomers to rural Alberta through a community-driven approach that supports local economic development needs and contributes to the growth of the community. The Rural Renewal Stream empowers rural communities to recruit and retain foreign nationals to live, work and settle in their communities.
Candidates can apply on their own using the Alberta Advantage Immigration Program portal.
On February 16, 2022, the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) was renamed to the Alberta Advantage Immigration Program. Our entrepreneur streams were also renamed.
Program eligibility criteria did not change. Candidates who submitted their application using our online portal must also now request a nomination extension in the portal. All other post-decision processes are unchanged.
The new program and stream names will be updated in the portal in the coming weeks.
