Canada Announces New Better Plans for the Caregivers!

visas default image Canada’s citizenship and immigration minister, Chris Alexander declared important refinements to the Caregiver program that appreciates the worthy contributions these caregivers fabricate to Canadian families and the economy. The main changes brought to the program are ending to the live-in requirements and providing eligible caregivers with two paths that will lead to permanent residence within six months.

One pathway features norms for child care contributors to current necessities, but without the need for the caregiver to live in the home of their employer where they may face the danger of mishandling.

Caregivers can work in health care occupations, including registered nurses, registered psychiatric nurses, licensed practical nurses, patient service associates and home support workers; it will trail a footway for permanent residence. The eligible caregivers in this field would be able to attain work experience either in providing in home cares or care in a health care facility to an elderly person or a person with a disability or medical condition. This pathway will offer more career options for eligible caregivers, and targets workers in occupations that are expected to face labor shortages in the future. The applications will be fixed within six month in this category.

The Canadian government is taking hostile efforts in shortening the Pile-up Mountains of applications for the permanent residence through the Live-in caregiver Program. As the part of the 2015 levels plan submitted today in the House of Commons, Canada will welcome 30,000 new Permanent Residents in this category. After reducing the progressing time the eligible caregivers will be reunited sooner with their families.

In recent years, the government of Canada has made advancements to the caregiver program by making open work permits available to live in caregivers immediately on the Permanent Residents.

Both the pathways will have a cap on the applications of 2,750 each year for a total of 5,500. It will not include spouse and dependents and will persist to be constant with the caregivers coming to Canada in recent years.
