PATHWAYS TO PERMANENT RESIDENCE

Caring for Children Pathway

 

Caring for People with High Medical Needs Pathway

Amid the recent review and overhaul of the Canadian Caregiver PR Program, a recent addition to the Pathways to Permanent Residence, created by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), is the creation of two new pathways for temporary immigrants in the caregiver job category. Current immigrant caregivers currently living in Canada can apply to gain permanent residence in Canada with the following Pathways to Permanent Residence:

The goal behind these pathways is to allow for quicker immigration processing times of applications waiting to become Canadian permanent residents.

Part of the changes of the Pathways to Permanent Residence included the previously mandatory Caregiver ‘live-in’ component of the program, which is no longer mandatory. Caregivers now have the option of living with their employer or living separately. This option was changed to help ensure that workers’ rights are upheld.
