Canada Caregiver Permanent

Applicants who apply for the Canada caregivers programme are granted permanent residency in Canada. It is possible to apply for it whether you are in Canada or abroad.

Caregivers are in high demand in Canada, as people need assistance with their homes, as well as to care for patients, young children, disabled people, and the elderly.

To be eligible for this programme, you must have at least a high school diploma, be at least 21 years old, have relevant work experience, and be able to interact respectfully.

Furthermore, the applicant must provide proof of a work offer.

However, if you want to apply for permanent residency, you must spend at least 2 years of the 4 years in your employer’s home.

The eligible applicant is also permitted to change employers, but you would be allowed to apply for a new work permit.

Who is it for?

You can apply for this program if you are 21 years or older and have a job offer.
