Immigration minister Marc Miller announced new and upgraded caregiver pilots that will allow the caregivers to continue coming to Canada while they work to make the caregiver pilot programs permanent. The new pilot programs will grant home care professionals permanent residency (PR) as soon as the candidates arrive in Canada. They will also be able to work with organisations that provide temporary or part time care to those who are semi independent or recovering from an injury or illness. 


This new method will enable the caregivers to easily find the suitable work with reputable companies and gain clear and an uncomplicated access permanent resident status on arrival in Canada.

However, it is expected that the Immigration minister can make two caregiver pilots a permanent program or announce two new caregiver pilots with new changes for further improvements.

The current programs such as the Home Child Care Provider Pilot and the Home Support Worker Pilot will enable the eligible caregivers and their family members to come to Canada with the intention of becoming permanent residents. 

As per the overall targets Canada will accept more than 15000 caregivers as permanent residents over the next two years, according to the IRCC.
