What does the Program offer?
The new program amends three main issues with the previous caregiver pilot programs:
1.The Home Support Worker pilot offers a direct pathway to permanent residence and allows applicants to bring family members with them to Canada. Under the new pro-gram's family members will be eligible to accompany caregivers and will be eligible to apply for open work permits and/or study permits
2. With the move to occupation-specific work permits, employers no longer need a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) before hiring a caregiver from overseas.
3. Ability for caregivers to change jobs: Caregiver programs have been criticized in the past because they bind caregivers to single families, creating an environment conducive to workplace abuse.The new pilots will enable caregivers to change employers more easily.
Certified candidates will have access to a classifieds job listings page and their profiles are presented in a portfolio from where employers across Canada can make direct contact.
