Permanent residence through the Caring for Children Program
If you have work experience in Canada as a home child care provider, you may be able to apply for permanent residence through the Caring for Children Program.
We are reviewing the Caring for Children and Caring for People with High Medical Needs pilot programs to determine how caregivers will apply for permanent residence after the pilots expire on November 29, 2019. We will announce the details well before the pilots expire.
These 5-year pilot programs are scheduled to expire on November 29, 2019. To be eligible to apply for them, you will need to have two years of full-time work experience as a caregiver and submit your application before that date.
The Government is committed to ensuring that caregivers continue to have a pathway to permanent residence.
