Are you tired of being undervalued and underpaid? Caring for children and the elderly are occupations that require patience, strength, and resilience. Caregivers are highly valued individuals in Canada; they are compensated fairly and have the possibility of gaining permanent residency due to Canada’s progressive immigration laws.
As of June 2019, the well-known caregiver programs have been revamped into two new five year pilots:
- Home Childcare Provider Pilot
- Home Support Worker Pilot
The main aim of the new Pilot is to protect you, the immigrant, and help you attain permanent residency in a more straightforward and clear path.
The two main changes effected in the new pilots are:
- You can change employers and do not need to live with your employer. This helps prevent abusive work environments from forming.
- Applicants to the pilots are allowed to bring family members with as long as they can prove that they are capable of supporting them by meeting the minimum requirements. Family members can also apply for work or study permits at the same time as you submit your application if they are eligible.
On average home-care workers earn $25,378 per year in Canada. Childcare workers can earn anything between $22,230 to $32,175 and even higher depending on experience and qualifications.
