Explore Canada’s Caregiver Immigration Pathways with NewSteps Immigration

Learn how NewSteps Immigration can help you navigate Canada’s caregiver immigration programs, offering pathways to permanent residency for qualified caregivers.

Canada’s Commitment to Caregivers

Caregivers form a vital part of Canada’s societal and economic fabric, especially given the country’s aging population and relatively low birth rate. Recognizing the critical role caregivers play, Canada offers several immigration and work permit pathways tailored to their unique skills and circumstances. NewSteps Immigration is here to guide you through these opportunities, ensuring you understand every option available to start your journey in Canada.

Modernizing Caregiver Immigration Programs

Canada’s progressive approach to immigration includes continuously updating and improving its policies and programs. In recent years, significant reforms have been made to caregiver pathways, culminating in the introduction of two pilot programs designed specifically for caregivers seeking permanent residence. These programs not only streamline the process but also allow for the issuance of temporary work permits while permanent residence applications are processed. Each year, these programs collectively accept up to 5,500 principal applicants.

Detailed Guide to Caregiver Pilot Programs

Home Child Care Provider Pilot

This pilot caters to individuals who assist parents with child care, potentially including some household duties. Unlike the previous Live-in Caregiver Program, living in the employer’s home isn’t a requirement, offering greater flexibility. Suitable roles under this pilot include:

  • Babysitter
  • Au pair
  • Childcare provider – private home
  • Nanny
  • Parent’s helper
  • Foster parent
  • Additional specific roles in various settings

Home Support Worker Pilot

This program is tailored for those who support seniors, individuals with disabilities, or those in rehabilitation by providing personal care and companionship. While care is typically provided in the employer’s or client’s home, living on-site is not mandatory unless specified. Roles in this category include:

  • Attendant for persons with disabilities – home care
  • Home support worker
  • Personal care attendant – home care
  • Respite worker – home support
  • Other specialized caregiver roles

  • At least 24 months of full-time qualifying work experience within the last 36 months.
  • Language proficiency evidenced by a Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) of 5.
  • Completion of one year of Canadian post-secondary education or its foreign equivalent.
