Big News for the caregivers who want to serve the Canadian Community
Caregivers have played an invaluable role for families in Canada and the world. They have supported many families raising children, aging parents,
and those who need additional specialized care. As a result, the Canadian government has come up with special News for the caregivers looking forward to making Canada their place of Residence.
On behalf of the Honorable Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, and members of Parliament Salma Zahid and Rechie Valdez announcement was made that the work experience required to qualify for Permanent Residency by a caregiver in Canada will be reduced from 24 months to 12 months from April 30, 2023. This will be retrospective for the caregivers who have already applied. In addition, it was announced that some spaces under the existing caregiver pathways have been reserved for caregivers who already have work experience in Canada from a previous work permit so that they can apply for permanent Residency.
This will help caregivers and their families to get faster permanent Residency and successful settlement in Canada. This update will benefit around 90% of applications currently in processing. In addition, it is an advantage for caregivers who are just starting and have already been providing care in Canada.
