The Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) extends the Post-Graduate Worker (PGW) stream was scheduled to end on January 1, 2018, to be replaced by the new Alberta Opportunity stream.

The provincial government decided against it, extending the program indefinitely.

“The planned changes, including the January start date, will be postponed in order for government to continue conversations with affected stakeholders. However, the goal remains the same – to better position foreign workers in Alberta for long-term success under standards that will meet the federal government’s requirements. Further updates will be announced in the new year. Prospective applicants can continue to apply under the existing streams into the new year,” reads a statement made on the official AINP website.

The AINP’s Post-Graduate Worker stream was very popular because it was one of the few programs that allowed international students to apply for permanent residency after graduation.
