Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program Environmental Scan

With the financial support of Pathways to Prosperity (P2P), AAISA undertook an environmental scan to examine the impact of federal policy changes on the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP) and the flow of nominees to the Alberta labour market and communities. The environmental scan examines the current and future factors that have and may continue to influence the program’s development and use.

The results of this environmental scan are based on a mixed-methods approach which involved a comprehensive literature review coupled with key informant interviews, as well as an analysis of publicly available quantitative data. Key themes and the most relevant areas of discussion were identified to be program design and use; immigration goals; relationships; and policy development, adaptation and alignment. The findings of this project provide an initial evaluation and understanding of the program that can ultimately be scaled to a larger regional study.
