This program is for applicants who are willing to settle in rural Alberta (outside of Calgary and Edmonton, and in a community of less than 100,000 population), to be able to obtain an “Endorsement of Candidate Letter” from the community.
How to apply? You can only apply online by creating an AAIP online profile. In order to create an AAIP account, you should have a MADI (My Alberta Digital ID) account first. Once you create your AAIP profile, that portal will give you a personalized list of documents you need to provide. Once your application is approved you will receive a nomination package by email which needs to be completed and submitted to IRCC for permanent residence.
