Please fill the form below:
Immigration Canada has replaced the Interim Pathway for Caregivers with the two new in-home caregiver pilot programs – Home Child Care Provider Pilot and Home Support Worker Pilot. IRCC has been accepting only 2,750 applications per year for each category. Not only these programs permit applicants to apply for permanent residence but also make them eligible for occupation restricted open work permit. Applicants with occupation restricted work permit can work as a caregiver with any employer in Canada.
- At least 24 months of full-time work experience as a Home childcare provider (NOC 4411) or Home support worker (NOC 4412) in Canada within the last 36 months
- Meet the minimum language requirement of CLB 5 in English or NLCL 5 in French
- Have 1-year post-secondary education in Canada or equivalent Education Credential Assessment (ECA) from an approved organization.
- Must not have any intention to live in the province of Quebec
If you meet all these requirements, you are eligible to apply for permanent residence under the Home Child Care Provider Pilot and Home Support Worker Pilot programs. Also, you can submit your work permit application along with your permanent residence application. Moreover, your family members can accompany you even at your work permit stage.
