The Town of Taber is proud to be selected as one of the Albertan municipalities that will implement the Province's Alberta Advantage Immigration Program. This is an economic immigration program that assists businesses in finding skilled workers from around the world, and in turn allows for skilled workers to be nominated for permanent residency by a Committee set up by the Town.

Business in Taber have made it clear that they need assistance finding skilled labourers, and so the Town of Taber is taking part in this Provincial initiative to help fill this need.

The Committee will be looking to candidates/applicants to have a connection to the community (i.e.: family, friends, culture groups, etc.) so the Committee can make their recommendations. 

Please read below for more information and for FAQs.

Please note that the Town of Taber is in the very early stages of setting up this program in our community. We ask for your patience as we finalize details and get this program started. As details come available, we will update this website and provide further communications on our public channels and/or in local media. 

About the Program

The Alberta Advantage Immigration Program (AAIP) helps to fill labour shortages with people looking to immigrate to Alberta from outside the country.

Employers post jobs on the Federal Government's Canada Job Bank to attract people looking to immigrate. When the business finds promising applications, they will bring the names to a Committee set up by the Town and ask for the Committee's recommendation to help support the applicant's immigration process.

The Committee will then provide a letter of support for the program to help bring the skilled workers the businesses identify to help with the applicant's immigration application.

Watch our calendar for future information sessions where the public is welcome and encouraged to attend to learn more!
