Alberta simplified the criteria in the Alberta Opportunity Stream
On November 29, 2019, Alberta's Ministry of Labour and Immigration announced that it has eliminated the Alberta Opportunity Stream List of Alberta Advanced Education Approved Post-Secondary Credentials. This was made to ease Alberta graduates to qualify for the AINP. The new regulations will affect graduates who started one of the following programs on or after April 1, 2019: a post-diploma or post-baccalaureate certificate, an undergraduate diploma (the completion of a specific program of study is no longer required for these graduates, but their occupation must still relate to their Alberta field of study), Post-diploma or post-baccalaureate certificate holders must also show that their previous field of study abroad relates to their occupation. All undergraduate degrees and graduate-level credentials are still eligible.
