This comprehensive guide from Life Ashore Immigration Consultancy Inc., your Toronto-based immigration specialists, will equip you with everything you need to know about obtaining a Caregiver Visa in Canada.


Understanding the Caregiver Programs

Canada offers two Caregiver Visa pilot programs:

  • Home Child Care Provider (HCCP): Ideal for individuals with experience caring for children (NOC 4411).

  • Home Support Worker (HSWP): Designed for those with a background in supporting adults with daily living activities (NOC 4412).

Eligibility Requirements:

To be eligible for a Caregiver Visa, you'll need to meet specific criteria, including:

  • Minimum Age: 22 years old or older

  • Valid Job Offer: Secure a confirmed employment offer from a Canadian employer who requires live-in caregiving services.

  • Work Experience: Demonstrate relevant experience in childcare or home support work aligned with the chosen program (NOC code).

  • Language Skills: Achieve the Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) 5 or National Occupation Language Standards (NOL) 5 in English or French across all four abilities: reading, writing, listening, and speaking.

  • Educational Background: Possess a minimum of one year of completed post-secondary education (Canadian or equivalent).

  • Medical Exam & Police Checks: Pass a medical examination and provide criminal background checks.

The Application Process: Streamlined for Success

The Caregiver Program boasts a simplified application process. Once you secure a valid job offer and meet the eligibility requirements, you can apply for a work permit and permanent residence simultaneously. This streamlines the process and allows you to focus on your caregiving role while building a path to permanent residency in Canada.
