Temporary measures to assist Ukrainian nationals who apply for the AAIP
The government of Alberta announced temporary processing measures on March 4, 2022, to assist Ukrainian nationals who apply for the Alberta Advantage Immigration Program (AAIP).
With the new measures, the province will prioritize applications and requests for post-decision services, and will reimburse the application fees and post-decision service fees to all Ukrainian candidates who request post-decision services on or after February 24, 2022.
Ukrainian nationals will have to meet program criteria to qualify for the program and have valid language results and an Educational Credential Assessment.
A candidate or nominee who cannot provide documents due to the conflict in Ukraine must provide the following:
a written explanation as to why the document(s) cannot be acquired, and
provide evidence they have requested the document(s) from the individual or organization responsible for issuing the document or evidence the issuing body is not issuing documents due to conflict in Ukraine
For Ukrainian nationals to qualify for the program and receive a nomination, they must continue to meet program criteria. They must also apply to the program using the application portal. However, the application will be assessed by program officers based on these measures.
