Canada invites Nigerian Pastors, Religious workers to Apply for Visa



Jason Kenney, the Premier of Alberta, revealed that applicants would also have a chance to live and work in the country permanently. 

Kenney noted that religious faith is a central part of the lives of many Albertans, and the policies will underscore the essential role that religious workers play in the health of residents.

To be selected, he explained that applicants must have a job offer from an Alberta-based faith organization and meet the existing criteria under the program, including language, education and wage requirements. 

Kenney said: “Religious newcomer professionals are now eligible to apply under the Alberta Opportunity Stream, Alberta Express Entry Stream and Rural Renewal Stream to work with religious organizations and settle permanently in the province. 

The Alberta Opportunity stream is for temporary foreign workers already working in Alberta and have a full-time job offer from an Alberta employer in an eligible occupation. 

The rural renewal stream is for individuals with a community-supported job offer to work in one of Alberta’s designated rural communities. The Alberta Express Entry Stream allows Alberta to nominate qualified candidates from the federal Express Entry system who demonstrate strong ties to Alberta or work in an occupation supporting Alberta’s economic development and diversification.

The province of Alberta in Canada has launched a new immigration pathway for Pastors/Religious Workers looking to migrate to Canada.
