Home Child Care Provider Pilot and Home Support Worker Pilot
This section contains policy, procedures and guidance used by IRCC staff. It is posted on the department’s website as a courtesy to stakeholders.
The Home Child Care Provider Pilot and Home Support Worker Pilot are two economic pilot programs for foreign national caregivers who
- have a qualifying job offer or Canadian work experience for work in an eligible caregiver occupation
- meet minimum education and language proficiency requirements
Initial applications to the new pilots have a 12-month target processing time. A 6-month target processing time applies for finalizing an application after the caregiver submits proof that they have met the work experience requirement. To note, a target processing time is what the Department aims to achieve. It is not a service standard (service standards are official commitments).
