Alberta issued all nomination in the AINP
On December 21, 2020, the website of the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) released the final nomination statistics of the year. Since December 8, Alberta issued the last 12 nominations, reaching the reduced threshold of 4,000 nomination certificates. Alberta Premier Jason Kenney decided to limit the number of nominations from the initial 6,250 to only 4,000 in response to high unemployment in Alberta which resulted from the COVID-19. At the same time, AINP will keep assessing applications and will renew nominations issuance in January 2021. Currently, AINP received 2,350 applications in the Alberta Opportunity Stream and 15 Expressions of Interest (EOI) in the Alberta Express Entry Stream that are waiting for the eligibility assessment.

Canada had the smallest population growth in the third quarter this year since 1946
A recent report issued by Statistics Canada shows that in the third quarter of this year, Canada’s population growth increased by 2,767, the least growth since 1946. The main reason for the near-zero growth in population was the COVID-19 pandemic, which prompted the Canadian government to impose travel restrictions on international travellers. Consequently, the “travel restrictions” created obstacles for new immigrants to come to land in Canada.
