The AINP recommends that all forms and supporting documents be sent to the AINP at the same time. However, Alberta Employers have the option of submitting the AINP 001: Employer-Driven Application – Semi-Skilled Worker Category application first along with the Employer’s supporting documents. If they are approved for an allocation, all the other forms can be sent following that approval. However, this will increase the overall processing times for the application.

In the case of the Foodservice Industry (pilot project) it is required that all forms and supporting documents must be sent at the same time.
