Alberta Opens Doors to Hospitality Professionals: Dive into the New Tourism and Hospitality Stream!

Exciting news for hospitality professionals and immigration hopefuls! Alberta is launching a brand new Tourism and Hospitality Stream under the Alberta Advantage Immigration Program (AAIP) on March 1, 2024. This stream provides a dedicated pathway to permanent residency for those with relevant experience and a job offer in the province's booming tourism industry.

Addressing the Needs of a Growing Industry:

Alberta's tourism sector is thriving, attracting millions of visitors and generating billions in revenue. This growth has resulted in significant labor shortages, particularly in various hospitality roles. The new stream aims to bridge this gap by attracting skilled and experienced professionals to fill these crucial positions.

Who is Eligible?

If you have experience in any area of tourism or hospitality and possess a full-time, non-seasonal job offer from an approved employer in Alberta, you may be eligible. This offer must be for a position directly related to tourism or hospitality, including roles in:

  • Hotels and resorts
  • Restaurants and bars
  • Tourism attractions and services
  • Event planning and management
  • Outdoor adventure companies

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

While details are still emerging, the basic requirements are expected to include:

  • 6+ months of relevant experience preferred.
  • Language proficiency in English or French (details to be confirmed).
  • Meeting the general eligibility criteria of the AAIP, including education, skills, and adaptability.

Fast-Track You’re Application:

Applications submitted under the Tourism and Hospitality Stream will receive priority processing, offering a faster route to permanent residency compared to general AAIP applications.

Limited Intake – Act Quickly!

While this program presents a fantastic opportunity, it's important to note that there will be a limited number of applications accepted. If you meet the eligibility criteria, we highly recommend preparing your application well in advance of March 1st to increase your chances of success.
