According to information released by Canada, the two programmes are five-year trial projects that enable eligible caregivers and their families to migrate and settle down permanently.
The Canadian government stated in updated information that seasoned caregivers can use any of the two programmes to immigrate to the nation of North America with their families.
It also showed that in contrast to the initial 24 months for caretakers, only 12 months of experience are required to be eligible.
The information said: “The Home Child Care Provider Pilot and the Home Support Worker Pilot are 5-year pilot programs that let qualified caregivers and their family members come to Canada with the goal of becoming permanent residents.
“If you’ve been offered a job in Canada as a caregiver or have experience working in Canada as a caregiver, you may be able to apply for permanent residence through one of these pilots.
“The application process will be different depending on your situation and how much qualifying work experience you have. You now only need 12 months of experience instead of 24 months to qualify.”
