What Is Canada Alberta Nominee Program 2013?
Alberta is a developing province of Canada in need of economic support from outside sources. And hence it is searching for options in the form of human resources through Canada Alberta Nominee Program 2013. The program has been specifically developed by the government of Canada to attract the immigrants to Alberta province. The main aim behind this program is to woo those professionals who are ready to contribute in the economy of Alberta by working there.
The program has been planned and operated by the Government of Alberta along with the Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) department belonging to Canadian Government. The program is aimed at offering permanent residence to the immigrants.
Who can apply for permanent resident visa?
The application for permanent resident visa for Alberta Nominee Program can be made through the CIC.

Generally the individuals who are nominated can also apply for permanent residence for their spouse/ partner and the children dependent upon them.
