The new Home Child Care Provider and Home Support Worker pilots only provide work permits to caregivers who have a job offer in Canada and who meet the following criteria:
- Language tests results showing a Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) of 5 in English or French;
- One year of Canadian post-secondary education or the foreign equivalent; and
- Admissible to Canada.
Caregivers already working in Canada on a work permit who meet these criteria can also apply for permanent residence through the new pilots.
IRCC said the new pilots have a 12-month processing standard for work permit applications and a six-month processing standard for applications for permanent residence from those who meet the work experience requirement.
