Home Care Provider Pilot Program
Immigration Consultants in Scarborough, Toronto
What is the Home Care Provider Pilot Program?
The Home Care Provider Pilots was introduced on June 18, 2019 and is the successor of the Live-in Caregiver Program (LCP), Caring for Children and Caring for People with High Medical Needs Pilot . Similar to its predecessors it provides a pathway for overseas home support providers to immigrate to Canada under an open work permit, and can become Permanent Residents once they have 2 years of eligible work experience in Canada. A great feature of this program is that family members of the Home Care Providers can also accompany them and work or study in Canada.
Under this new pilot, there are 2 streams Home Care Providers can apply:
- The Home Child Care Provider Pilot (HCCP); and
- The Home Support Worker Pilot (HSWP)
