Home Child Care Provider Pilot or Home Support Worker Pilot

These pilot programs provide qualified caregivers with an entry route into Canada, offering them a pathway to permanent residency that is contingent upon gaining relevant work experience and meeting specific criteria related to job offers and language proficiency.

To be eligible for permanent residency through the caregiver programs, applicants need to meet specific criteria, which may include:

Work Experience: Candidates must have accumulated at least 24 months of full-time work experience (or part-time equivalent) in Canada within the past three years as either a home childcare provider or a home support worker. This experience must have been gained under either the Temporary Foreign Worker Program or the Live-in Caregiver Program.

Education: While there might not be stringent educational requirements, possessing relevant education or training in caregiving can bolster the application.

Language Proficiency: Applicants must exhibit proficiency in English or French by submitting valid language test results. The required language levels can vary depending on the specific caregiver stream.

The process for applying for permanent residency under a caregiver stream typically involves the following steps:

  1. Gather Supporting Documents: Collect all necessary documents to substantiate your application, including evidence of work experience, education, language proficiency, and any other required paperwork.
  2. Complete the Application: Fill in the application forms provided by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) accurately and comprehensively. Ensure all mandatory fields are completed and all supporting documents are included.
  3. Medical Examinations and Security Checks: Complete medical examinations and undergo security checks as part of the application process.
  4. Submit the Application: Send your fully completed application to IRCC along with the requisite supporting documents and fees.
  5. Processing and Decision: IRCC will assess your application, conduct necessary checks, and ultimately make a determination on your permanent residency application.
