A Caregiver is a person who takes care of children 18 years or younger and tends to their needs and day-to-day chores while their parents are at work. A Caregiver can also be a person who provides care for seniors due to their age, illness, injury, or disability.
A caregiver may be working full-time or part-time. For more information on who can be classified as a Caregiver, call the immigration lawyers at the Edmonton Law Office.
There have been dynamic changes in the caregiver’s immigration programs over the years, with several available programs opening while other programs are closing. For example, previous caregiver programs such as “Caring for Children and Caring for people with high medical needs” and “Interim Pathway for Caregivers” are programs that have already been terminated.
Currently, two active initiatives are the Home Child-Care Provider Pilot and Home Support Worker Pilot projects. These pilots are running for 5 years, and there is a cap on how many foreign caregivers can apply under these pilot projects.
Call one of our immigration lawyers to discuss these active programs in more detail and whether you or a loved one could be a valid candidate.
