The Canadian Government has announced that it will soon replace the caring for children/people with high Medical Needs Pilot Programs with two new five-year immigration pilots that will provide caregivers and their family members with a new pathway to immigration to Canada.
The Home Child Care Provider and Home Support Worker Pilot Programs will come into effect in late 2019.
To avoid the confusion that the Interim Pathway for Caregivers addresses, the applicants under the new pilot category will be processed against the criteria for Canadian Permanent Residence before they begin working in Canada. The applicants coming through the pilot program will require gaining at least two years of work experience in Canada before accessing IRCC's ‘direct pathway' to permanent residence.
This work experience would be acquired with an occupation-specific work permit for caregivers rather than an employer-specific work permit. This means that caregivers can switch employers if they wish.
The new pilot project will allow family members to accompany caregivers to Canada. A spouse/partner of caregiver will be entitled to an open work permit and dependent children would be granted a study permit in Canada.
“Caregivers provide care for families in Canada that need it and it’s time for Canada to care for them in return,” Canada’s Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, Ahmed Hussen, said in a news release. “We are providing them with both the opportunity to bring their family members here and access permanent residency to demonstrate our commitment.”
A total of 2,750 invitations are given under the Home Child Care Provider and Home Support Worker Pilots for immigration to canada. The numbers of invitations are exclusive of spouses and dependent children for each pilot.
The eligibility requirements of the new pilot will be announced after the expiration of the two current caregiver pilots on November 29, 2019
The new pilot is implemented with a promise by IRCC in 2017 to eliminate 80 percent of the backlog of permanent residence applications submitted under 2014 pilots. It has now eliminated 94 percent of the backlog and reduced the processing time to 12 months.
As Canada’s population ages, foreign caregivers are becoming more and more essential in this country and it’s great to see IRCC acknowledging them.
Therefore, Caregivers in the near future has great chances of achieving permanent residency. For further information in this regard, it is suggested to connect with visa and immigration experts of Aptech Global by filling the Canada Assessment form.
This is in regard to my journey with Aptechvisa Services. I have experienced here were so far better and I already recommended my multiple friends to them because I can trust their words. I got Aptech visa reference through one of my best friend and today I am in Canada and this all happened just because of Aptech visa.
This is a time to appreciate the performance of Aptech visa. True, Genuine, professional and what not, this is the immigration consultancy to whom we can trust blindly. Due to my age factor I did not score well but more than 400 and this made myself eligible for Ontario and my consultant worked hard in my profile and made it true.
Hope you all are reading my message with Great Spirit. I would rate Aptech 10 out of 10. In between of my application, I have faced a lot of issues in arranging documents but everything went well and there was a continuous support of Aptech which motivated me everything and today I am in Canada, Ontario. Thank you Aptech
Aptech is the best immigration consultant and the staff is of very friendly nature. Since I was there in US, so it was very difficult for me to coordinate with them but they always answered my queries very promptly and meantime, my father was there every time to support me. With the help of Aptech and my father, we got our PR visa for Canada. I am feeling so lucky to be associated with Aptech.
Here we would like to Thank you Aptech visa for all the assistance and help which we have received in our Canada PR visa application throughout the process. They helped me a lot in every manner and it would be an honor if I would say something good about Aptech visa. You guys are really hard working.
Mine was the wonderful journey with Aptech throughout the process. I enjoyed working with them and I would really recommend Aptech to all of you. I have also given a lot of references and in future also will try to refer Aptech to all my known and relatives.
My son has applied for PR visa through Aptech and then he decided to apply for my tourist visa from Aptech only and you can’t believe that I got my visa within 24 hours after applying for the online application. I would really appreciate the work out done by Aptech Global in our applications. Keep working hard guys.
Due to some corrections in my passport, it took more time for me to get the visa but Aptech handled all the things very precisely and smartly. They keep on coordinating with High Commission for my application and did all the conversation on time. Thank you for supporting me.
