Canada’s recent caregiver immigration pilots Program

The Canadian government recently came up with two brand new caregiver immigration pilots. If you were looking to apply, then you will be happy to know that they are now accepting applications.

The two previous pilots, Caring for Children and Caring for People with High Medical Needs are being replaced by the newly introduced pilots, namely the Home Child Care Provider Pilot and the Home Support Worker Pilot. The purpose of both these pilots is to give eligible caregivers a chance to pave their way towards the permanent residence in Canada. The only requirement is that the candidates must have acquired two years of work experience in Canada.

The applications which were submitted to the Caring for Children and Caring for People with High Medical Needs pilots prior to 18th June will still be taken into consideration and processed, but the government has altogether stopped accepting applications for any of these pilots.
