To be eligible for the Rural Renewal Stream and work in Wetaskiwin, candidates must meet a series of criteria, receive an offer for a full-time, permanent position from an eligible employer, be endorsed by the Wetaskiwin Rural Renewal Partnership, and apply using the Alberta Advantage Immigration Program portal.
Prior to applying for an employment opportunity, candidates are encouraged to review, understand and ensure they meet all eligibility requirements under the Alberta Advantage Immigration Program. There are requirements for:
- job experience
- financial security
Candidates are responsible for ensuring they meet the eligibility of the Alberta Advantage Immigration Program (AAIP) Rural Renewal Stream. Please review the terms and conditions for the Rural Renewal Stream. Submission of an application or nomination by the Alberta Advantage Immigration Program does not guarantee you will be issued a permanent resident visa.
Those who do not meet the eligibility will not progress through the program. Candidates that are currently living in Canada are only eligible if they have valid temporary status in Canada.
Once a candidate is confident they meet the eligibility requirements, they may apply for employment.
Candidates must receive a job offer from an employer who is based within the City of Wetaskiwin and has been approved by Wetaskiwin under the Rural Renewal Stream.
The City of Wetaskiwin can only review requests for letters of endorsement after the candidate receives a job offer from an employer approved by the Wetaskiwin Rural Renewal Stream Community Partnership.
