Alberta Shares Eligibility Requirements for New Alberta Tourism and Hospitality Streams

  • Listening – 4.5 bands
  • Speaking – 4 bands
  • Writing – 4 bands
  • Reading – 3.5 bands

The new Alberta Tourism and Hospitality stream requires the applicant to be living in Alberta and mandates:

  • Valid job offer from an Alberta employer in the tourism and hospitality sector
  • Valid work permit with positive LMIA approval
  • Minimum six months of continuous work experience in qualifying occupations

Prospective immigrants willing to leverage the new steam need a minimum of Canadian high school education to qualify. Candidates must provide an Education Credential Assessment (ECA) for academic qualification outside Canada.
