Caregivers can now enter Canada with the members of their family as well as get permanent residence as the two immigration pilot programs are being launched by the Trudeau government. The new programs are designed to help caregivers in a variety of ways including removal of barriers that prevent families of caregivers from joining them in Canada, greater freedom to change jobs as required, the offering of open work permits and study permits to their spouses and dependent children respectively. Before applicants under these programs start working, they will be assessed for permanent residence. Once given work permits, applicants will become permanent residents after two years of working in the country. 'Caring for People with High Medical Needs' and 'Caring for Children' pilot programs will be replaced by the Home Support Worker pilot and the Home Child Care Provider pilot because they are considered ineffective according to Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen. The new programs which will start later this year will take a maximum of 5,500 principal applicants per year - 2,750 apiece.
