Caregivers

Caregiver Pilot Program On June 18, 2019 the government of Canada introduced a Pilot Program aimed at caregivers. Under the pilot project you may be able to apply for Permanent Residence if • You meet the eligibility requirements, and; • You have experience as either a Home Child Care provider or Home Support Worker You can receive an open work permit which will allow you to come to Canada temporarily. The work permit is restricted on the occupation You DO NOT require an LMIA to be eligible under this process The application for permanent residence and work permit is made at the same time so necessarily it is a Permanent Residence application. Once the applicant has 2 years’ experience in one of the two eligible occupations, the application for permanent residence is complete
