SUMMARY: This course will provide an in-depth overview of Canada’s immigration pilots for child care providers and home support workers, as introduced in the summer of 2019. Our instructor will discuss the parameters of the eligible job offers under the Pilots, as well as the individual candidate requirements. We will explore all three application scenarios, including out of Canada caregivers with no Canadian work experience, as well as those who have completed the qualifying experience to be eligible for permanent residence. The course will also address the availability of temporary permits for accompanying dependants, as well as practical considerations for applicants under these Pilots.
