Caregivers propose new federal immigration status program for overseas workers in Canada

VANCOUVER, CA — Caregiver organizations across Canada have crafted a new federal caregiver program that will give landed status to caregivers and their families as soon as they arrive in Canada.

To protect caregivers already working here under the pilot program, they are proposing renewable open work permits, scrapping the expensive LMIA for those who need to renew their permits, and being able to become permanent residents after one year of work.

Caregiver groups from Toronto, Vancouver, Edmonton, Montreal and Ottawa are also appealing to Canada’s immigration minister to champion the cause of migrant care workers.
