Do you want to work as a senior caregiver in Canada and eventually immigrate to the country with your family? The new caregiver immigration program in Canada makes it easier for you to do this.
The Home Support Worker Pilot lets you submit your work permit application, along with your permanent residency application. You may even bring your family members with you when you go to Canada.
How to apply:
1. Check your eligibility for the new caregiver immigration program of Canada.
As a first step, you need to make sure you are eligible to apply for this program. These are the things you would need to have:
- A valid job offer.
- Your education, training, or work experience must indicate that you can do the job.
- The result of your language test must be CLB 5 in all language abilities: writing, reading, speaking and listening.
- You must have completed at least one year of post-secondary education credential in Canada or your foreign education, when assessed, must show that it’s equal.
2. Get a valid job offer.
You can’t start your application for the new caregiver immigration program of Canada without a valid job offer from a Canadian employer.
Ways to obtain a job offer letter from a Canadian employer:
- Ask family members, friends, or relatives in Canada to connect you to private households or in-home care agencies that are looking for senior care providers.
- Check the websites of in-home care agencies in Canada and see if there are job openings for senior caregivers.
For the job offer to be valid, it must:
- Use the Offer of Employment form (IMM 5983)
- Be made by a singular Canadian employer
- Be genuine
- Indicate full-time work (30+ paid hours per week)
- Be for Home Support Worker occupation (NOC 4412)
- Be signed by both you and the employer
3. Gather all supporting documents and forms required for your work permit and permanent residency applications.
- Make sure you have filled out, signed and dated all the required forms.
- Provide answers accurately and truthfully. Take your time with them – your application will suffer if you don’t submit completed forms or if you misrepresented yourself.
4. Pay the application fees (include the receipts when you submit all the required forms).
You’ll be paying for the following:
- processing fee
- right of permanent residence fee
- work permit fee
- open work permit holder fee
- biometrics fee
