Home Child Care/ Home Support Worker

These are 5-year pilot programs that replace the previous Caring for Children and Caring for People with High Medical Needs programs.

The Caregiver Program in Canada is a pathway for foreign nationals to obtain permanent residence in Canada by working as a caregiver for children, elderly, or people with medical needs.


Here are some key points to summarize the program:

  • There are two streams under the Caregiver Program: the Caring for Children Stream and the Caring for People with High Medical Needs Stream.

  • To be eligible for the program, applicants must have a job offer from a Canadian employer and meet certain language, education, and work experience requirements.

  • Caregivers who are already in Canada may also be eligible to apply for permanent residence through the program if they meet the requirements.

  • Caregivers are required to work for their employer for a minimum of 2 years before they can apply for permanent residence.

  • Caregivers who have completed a minimum of 2 years of authorized full-time employment in Canada may be eligible for an open work permit to allow them to work for any employer while their permanent residence application is being processed.

  • In order to apply for permanent residence, caregivers must submit their application along with supporting documents and pay the required fees.

  • The Caregiver Program is subject to changes and updates, so it is important to check the latest program requirements and guidelines before applying.
