Canada instigated two new pilot programs for caregivers on June 18 in the year 2019 that make it easy to hire foreign caregivers, home support workers, and home childcare providers.

However, there are four different ways to apply for permanent residency for caregivers. Go through the mentioned programs and figure out the one that suits you the best.

  1. Caring For Children Program : This program is eligible for caregivers who have been serving childcare in Canada for at least two years minimum, meeting minimum education and language requirements. To be eligible to apply for this program, you have to meet the essential needs.
  2. Interim Pathway For Caregivers: One can apply for permanent residence through the Interim Pathway if he or she has at least one year of work experience as a home child care provider or home supporter with at least minimum language and education eligibility.  To be eligible to apply for this program, you have to meet the essential requirements.
  3. Caring For People With High Medical Needs Program: This program is eligible for caregivers who have been working in Canada for at least two years as an orderly home support worker or registered nurse licensed practical nurse aide with minimum eligibility in language and education.  To be eligible to apply for this program, you have to meet the essential requirements.
  4. Live-in Caregiver Program: One can apply for permanent residency through Live-in Caregiver Program (LCP) only if he or she has at least two years of work experience in the program or if you are already working in Canada with an LCP work allowance. Besides, you are also eligible for permanent residency if you got approval for the first LCP work allowance based on the Labour Market Impact Assessment given into the Employment and Social Development Canada on or before November 30, 2014.

Nonetheless, if you have work and language experience in Canada as a caregiver or home supporter but do not qualify for the mentioned programs, you must apply through a different program.
