The Caregiver program is for individuals who want to immigrate and work in Canada as Caregivers. A new caregiver immigration pilot program was launched on June 18, 2019 and has replaced the old caregiver programs (Caring for Children and Caring for People with High Medical Needs pilots). The new caregiver program has a quota of 5,500 total applications every year under both caregiver pilots (Home Child Care Provider Pilot & Home Support Worker Pilot). The Home Child Care Provider Pilot and the Home Support Worker Pilot are 5-year pilot programs that let qualified caregivers and their family members come to Canada with the goal of becoming permanent residents.
