Home Child Care Provider and Home Support Worker
These programs open for applications on June 18, 2019, replacing the expiring Caring for Children and Caring for People with High Medical Needs pilots. These new pilot programs will help caregivers who come to this country make it their permanent home. Applicants 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.
