Programs: Live-In Caregivers

Practice the rewarding work of caring for others in Canada.

Live-In Caregivers

Canada is a country which recognizes the important work done by caregivers. These are the workers who provide support to our children, seniors, and others requiring care. For this reason, Canada manages a range of programs to assist caregivers with finding work and obtaining permanent residency.

Ifyou have no qualifying job experience, the Home Child Care Provider Pilot or the Home Support Worker Pilot can apply for permanent residence as long as you fulfill the other eligibility criteria.
