Caregiver Programs for Home Child Care and Home Support Worker
For families needing support to care for their children or for loved ones needing care, BMB assist you in everything from finding the perfect candidate, to processing visa applications and settlement services.
There are two eligible programs as of June 18, 2019 that will allow families to hire in-home caregivers:
Home Child Care Provider Pilot – NOC 4411
Home Support Worker Pilot – NOC 4412
If you already have a candidate in mind and need advice on applying for Work Permit or Permanent Residency please contact here to set appointment – CONTACT US
Once a qualified caregiver has been identified the employer issues an employment offer and BMB Immigration will process the Work Permit. An LMIA is not needed for this program.
This pilot is designed to bring Home Support Workers to Canada on temporary work permits, with the ability to apply for permanent residence after gaining enough work experience.
Eligibility Criteria – Caregivers must meet the following requirements
Eligible candidates will have a job offer in Canada at the time of application for a work permit.
Eligible candidates will meet IELTS level 5.5.
Applicants must have one year of Canadian post-secondary education or foreign equivalent to be eligible.
After you hire a caregiver
Once the applicant has the offer of employment, BMB will assist them to submit their permanent residence application through either the Home Child Care Provider or Home Support Worker pilot. They’ll also have to submit a work permit application along with their permanent residence application. If they meet the permanent residence criteria, they’ll get a work permit.
It can take up to 12 months for the worker to get their work permit. You should plan ahead if you’re hiring a caregiver through these pilots.
