[UPDATE FEBRUARY 5, 2018]

The Government of Canada has very quietly announced that it is closing the Caregiver programs described below on November 29, 2019.  Applicants who did not start working as caregivers prior to that date will be unable to apply under these programs.

[ORIGINAL POST]

On November 28, 2014, the Government of Canada issued Ministerial Instructions completely overhauling Canada’s caregiver immigration programs.

The changes consist of:

  • Suspending the in-take of applications under the existing Live-in Caregiver Program;
  • Establishing the Caring for Children Class; and
  • Establishing the Caring for People with High Medical Needs Class.

The above changes all take effect on November 30, 2014.
