There are new ways to enter Canada as immigrants. Thanks to two new immigration pilots that the government of Canada will be launching soon. These two pilots are targeting caregivers to come to the country as immigrant workers. Aside from these, another route would be via the Interim Pathway for Caregivers. This one will be reopened by July and would run for only three months.
Canada has a population that has been aging over the years and the birth rate is not that high to be able to up the average age in the country. This means that there are more and more individuals who would be needing care. Caregivers are definitely needed and the country does not seem to have enough of those around. Thus, the need to attract such skilled individuals to go to the country and become immigrant workers. Canada has been known to try and find local talent first and if that does not bring in good results, its government will try and look for the needed individuals from abroad.
The two immigration pilots
There are two immigration programs have been running in Canada – Caring For Children pathway and the Caring For People With High Medical Needs pathway. However, these two would soon be phased out. That is where the new programs will be coming in. These two would be the Home Support Worker Pilot program and the Home Child Care Provider Pilot program. According to the Canada government, these new pilots are going to help bring in the needed caregivers who are eligible to do the jobs in the country. These would also allow the caregivers to have a chance of getting a permanent residency status. To be able to do that, they have to have at least two years of working in Canada.
Those individuals who have already sent in their applications under the two current programs should not be worried though. If the applications have been sent in before the 18th of June, these will be processed still. However, applications sent in after that would not be accepted anymore.
Getting in via the new pilot programs
To be able to get into the country via the new programs, individuals who are interested have to be qualified and should meet the set criteria by the Canada government. The list of requirements includes the following:
- Having a score of 5 as Canadian Language Benchmark under language tests
- A year’s worth of post-secondary education in Canada or the equivalent abroad
- Passes immigration qualifications
According to the Canada government, those individuals who are already working as caregivers in the country and still have a permit to work in the country and qualify for the given criteria can also send in their applications to get a permanent residency status via the new pilot programs.
