COVID-19 response

The AINP continues to accept and process applications and Expressions of Interest (EOIs), with temporary adjustments to some application and assessment processes.

Find out how the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program is responding to COVID-19.

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 Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) for assessment. The AINP will consult with Alberta Agriculture and Forestry to ensure the business plan is feasible and viable, and meets the needs of Alberta’s agriculture industry.

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

As of October 1, 2020, the AINP 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.
