Canada to reduce work experience requirements for caregivers and provide pathways to permanent residence


Canada: 6,000 Caregivers Set to be Welcomed by the End of 2021 –  International Education Consultants | Study Abrod | Lagos, Nigeria

News Release

International carers have supported Canadian families in a vital way for many years. In recognition of their enormous contributions, Canada has provided avenues for permanent residence.

In the name of the Hon. Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship, along with Salma Zahid and Rechie Valdez, members of Parliament, announced today that the minimum period of time a caregiver must have worked in Canada to be eligible for permanent residence will be lowered from 24 months to 12 months.

In order to allow carers who already have work experience in Canada from a prior work visa to apply for permanent residence, some openings under the current caregiver paths have also been set aside for them. For caregivers who have already used it, the modification will take effect retroactively on April 30, 2023.

As a result, carers and their families will have an easier time settling down in Canada and obtaining permanent residency. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) hopes to streamline the application process by lowering the necessary Canadian job experience.

Almost 90% of the applications presently being processed are anticipated to gain from this upgrade, which is advantageous for both new caregivers and those who have been caring in Canada for some time.

As the deadline for the current caregiver programs draws near, we’ll keep making any necessary adjustments to express our gratitude to the caregivers who lessen some of the stress in the lives of Canadian families in need.

The future of caregiver programming is now being planned in order to prepare for what occurs when the pilots wrap up in June 2024.


Caregivers are a valuable alternative for Canadian families and have helped many growing children, elderly parents, and people who require more specialized care. By lowering the amount of work experience necessary in Canada to one year, more carers and their families will be qualified to switch to a permanent residences more quickly, allowing them to settle down and begin their new lives in Canada.

Most Honorable Minister of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Sean Fraser.

It is an honor for us to offer caregivers a quicker path to permanent residence and successful integration into Canadian society because they are essential in supporting Canadian families. Caregiver sacrifices and the importance of their labor to Canadian society are recognized by the lowered work experience requirement and designated avenues to permanent residency.

Salma Zahid is a representative representing Scarborough Center.

It is our obligation to assist Canadian caregivers. We may express our gratitude for the efforts and dedication of caregivers in a number of ways, including by reducing work experience requirements and establishing exclusive channels for permanent residency.

To appreciate the value that carers offer to our society and to Canada, we are committed to enhancing the procedure and implementing the necessary improvements.

Quick Fact

  • For caregivers who have already applied, the modification will take effect retroactively on April 30, 2023.
  • Both applicants from the Home Child Care Provider (HCCP) trial and the Home Support Worker (HSW) pilot, including those whose applications have already been accepted by IRCC and prospective applicants for the remaining five-year pilots, are intended to be affected by the change in criteria.
  • Over 1,600 carers and their family members have moved in as permanent residents since the pilot programs’ inception in 2019. Via the two pilot programs, over 1,100 caregivers and their families will become permanent residents in 2022 alone.
  • The majority of Canada’s labor force increase may be attributed to immigration. Around 75% of Canada’s population growth is attributable to immigration, primarily of an economic nature. Compared to 20.7% in 2011, immigrants will make up to 30% of Canada’s population by 2036.
  • In Canada, there were seven workers for each retiree fifty years ago. The ratio is currently closer to three, and if Canada continues on its current course, it will reach two employees for every retiree within the next ten to fifteen years.
