Two Caregiver Programs Begin For Qualified Applicants to Get Canada PR -20th June, 2019

Two Caregiver Programs Begin For Qualified Applicants to Get Canada PR
The immigration of minister of Canada, Ahmed Hussen, has announced pilot programs and related enhancements in the work-permit applications catering to the caregivers.  These are Home Child Care Provider and Home Support Worker, and will open to receive the applications starting from June 18th.

The replacement

These new pilot programs for caregivers replace the existing pilots that are on the verge of expiring.  The yearly intake in each program will be 2,750 principal applicants, and their close family members.

Also, in these new programs, caregivers will get a work permit only when they enclose a Canadian Job Offer and also meet the normal criteria for immigration programs. After gaining the necessary Canadian work experience (2 years), they can seek the permanent residency. The government wants the people who arrive to work as caregivers to have a path and get permanent residency. There are some other benefits in the new pilots. These are:

  1. Open work permits and study permits to benefit the immediate family members,
  2. The abolition of the Labor Market Impact Assessment in this case,
  3. The issuing of specific work permits for caregivers instead of the employer-specific permits.

Major benefits

There is empowerment of caregivers to leave the employers and also issuing a flexible work permit. 
Moreover, the government extended the Interim Pathway for Caregivers, which re-opens ‪on July 8 and will accept applications for the duration of three months. Some experts are advocating for the cause of caregivers by removing/reducing the requirements for language and education.

These new programs offer a good solution to the caregivers but they have to meet the eligibility requirements. With such kind of government support, they can hope to get a better status in Canada.
