Home Child Care Provider Pilot and Home Support Worker Pilot Programs
Canada is making major changes to its foreign caregiver program and replaces the current in-home caregiver pilot programs that expire soon, and which IRCC said are ineffective. Both the Home Child Care Provider Pilot and Home Support Worker Pilot are intended to give foreign caregivers a way to become permanent residents. Once the caregiver has their work permit and 2 years of work experience in Canada, they will have access to a direct pathway to become a permanent resident. Both programs will launch later this year with a maximum of 2,750 principal applicants each, for a total of 5,500 principal applicants per year. Spouses/common-law partners and dependent children will not count against the limit.
Interim Pathway For Caregivers Applications March 4 – June 4, 2019
To further remedy the ineffective previous caregiver pilot programs, on March 4, 2019, IRCC launched the Interim Pathway for Caregivers program to provide qualified in-home caregivers an opportunity to stay in Canada permanently. The program will take applications for 3 months only, from March 4 – June 4, 2019. This program will provide a pathway to permanent residence for caregivers who came to Canada in good faith under the previous program and are providing care to Canadians but do not have a clear pathway to permanent residence under the current system. Applicants must meet caregiver permanent residence IRCC qualifications for status. work, language and education criteria.
