Town of TaberHome Menu
The Town of Taber is a designated community in the Alberta Advantage Immigration Program (AAIP). Our designation covers The Town of Taber, MD of Taber, Town of Vauxhall and the Town of Coaldale and the Town of Picture Butte. Through the AAIP, the Town of Taber will be able to support business owners located within our designated communities by attracting foreign nationals that are qualified to fill vacant, full-time, permanent position in the designated communities, and will also attract foreign entrepreneurs looking to invest in new business or existing Alberta businesses. Foreign Nationals who participate in the AAIP will receive a letter of support from the designated community that will support their Provincial nomination, and eventually, permanent residency.
The Town of Taber is offering two of the streams under the Alberta Advantage Immigration Program; The Rural Renewal Stream (RRS), and the Rural Entrepreneur Stream (RES).
The Rural Renewal Stream (RRS): The RRS will allow employers who are located within the designated communities to recruit foreign nationals living in Canada or Globally, to fill positions they have struggled to fill. The foreign nationals will be able to apply for permanent residency while filling labor shortages felt by employers.
The Rural Entrepreneur Program (RRP): will support Foreign Nationals looking to start a new business, or invest in an existing business, that is located in one of the designated communities. This program will help drive the economy by encouraging growth and diversity.

Any information gathered on the Town of Taber pages is a guide and should always be confirmed by reading from the Government of Alberta pages.
