Caregiver Pilot Program

May 2, 2015


The Caregiver program is for individuals who want to immigrate and work in Canada as Caregivers.  The new Caregiver Program let qualified caregivers and their family members come to Canada with the goal of becoming permanent residents.

The caregiver program is no longer employer-specific although it is still employer-driven; meaning caregivers still need Canadian employers to hire them but now employers are not required to undergo the LMIA process. The caregivers are issued occupation-specific work permit, means they are not bound to work for that specific employer or location and are free to work for any or as many employers or locations as they want or able to find but with the same occupation.
