Canada Express Entry – Caregiver Immigration Pilot Launched
The Home Child Care Provider Pilot and Home Support Worker Pilot will replace the Caring for Children and Caring for People with High Medical Needs pilots and provide eligible caregivers with a pathway to permanent residence once they’ve acquired two years of Canadian work experience.
Applications filed to the Caring for Children and Caring for People with High Medical Needs pilots before June 18 will still be processed, but applications will no longer be accepted through these pilots after that date.
Caregivers with work experience in National Occupational Classification (NOC) 4411 (excluding foster parents) will be eligible for permanent residence through the Home Child Care Provider Pilot.
Caregivers with work experience in NOC 4412 (excluding housekeepers) will be eligible for permanent residence through the Home Support Worker Pilot. IRCC said the new pilots will have a 12-month processing standard for work permit applications and a six-month processing standard for applications for permanent residence from those who meet the work experience requirement.
Key updates to new pilots - Major changes from the outgoing Caring for Children and Caring for People with High Medical Needs pilots include: Occupation-specific work permits instead of employer-specific work permits. This change will allow caregivers to change employers; Caregiver’s immediate family will also be entitled to open work permits and/or study permits; Employers will no longer need a Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) before hiring a caregiver from overseas.
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) said the new pilots will ensure “a clear transition from temporary to permanent status” for caregivers and their families once a caregiver has accumulated the required two years of Canadian work experience.
“Canada is caring for our caregivers. We made a commitment to improve the lives of caregivers and their families who come from around the world to care for our loved ones and with these new pilots, were are doing exactly that,” Canada’s Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, Ahmed Hessen, said in a news release. The new pilots will each have a maximum of 2,750 principal applicants per year, for a total of 5,500 principal applicants, plus their immediate family.
“These pilots offer important updates like occupation-specific work permits and open work permits and study permits for family members that will give caregivers the support they need while putting in the hours toward Canadian permanent residence,” said David Cohen, senior partner with the Campbell, Cohen Canadian immigration(https://globaltree.in/services/immigration/canada-immigration-consultant/) law firm in Montreal.
