2 New Pilots: Home Child Care Provider and Home Support Worker

Settlement ISC Citizenship & Immigration, Community, Updates

Canada is launching two new pilots to help caregivers who come this country in hopes of making it their permanent home. On June 18, 2019, the Home Child Care Provider and Home Support Worker will replace the Caring for Children and Caring for People with High Medical Needs pilots. 

Caregivers will now only receive a work permit if they have a job offer in Canada and meet standard criteria for economic immigration programs. Once working in Canada, caregivers will be able to begin gaining the required 2 years of Canadian work experience to apply for permanent residence.
