As a company of Canadian Immigration Consultants in Vancouver, the team at Racer Immigration understands that many of the people who come to Canada looking for job opportunities are also considering knowing and learning about pathways to get the permanent residence. This month, our team are happy to share with you great news for caregivers.
Canada is accepting applications to its 2 new caregiver immigration pilot programs:
- the Home Child Care Provider Pilot and,
- Home Support Worker Pilot.
Both pilot programs provide eligible caregivers a pathway to permanent residence after they have acquired two years of Canadian work experience.
According to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) news, these two new pilots programs intend to provide work permits to caregivers who meet some criteria, such as:
- To prove Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) of 5 in English or French;
- One year of Canadian post-secondary education or the foreign equivalent;
- To be admissible to Canada;
- To have a job offer in Canada.
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) said the new pilots will provide “a clear transition from temporary to permanent status” for those people who work as caregivers and their families.
Other updates that these new pilots are bringing include changes in the work permits, allowing caregivers to have occupation-specific work permit instead of employer-specific work permit which giving them the flexibility to change employers; the family members of the caregiver employee will be entitled to open work permits and/or study permits.
Racer Immigration knows that all this information can be quite confusing and overwhelming. As an Immigration Advisor in Vancouver, our team of experts can help you understand all these possibilities. Racer Immigration is happy to advise those intending or undertaking this caregiver immigration process.
