Hi Aymen,

Thank you for your question. To be eligible for an apprenticeship in Alberta, you must be a Canadian citizen, permanent resident or protected person (e.g., a refugee) or possess a Post-Graduation Work Permit, having graduated from an eligible Canadian institution. You can find out more from the Alberta provincial website on how to Begin an Apprenticeship.

For more of an overview, you can also read more about Work Permits for Canada and Visas for Canada.

Hopefully some local expats will reply with their immigration experiences.

Wishing you the best in your journey,
