How the Application Process Works

One of the primary requirements for applicants is a 24-month work experience in the relevant pilot program. Candidates must provide documented proof of their work-experience claims. The process is quite lenient for persons who have checked all the eligibility requirements because they can still file their applications even with a work experience that falls short of the full needed threshold.

As mentioned above, the Canadian government is still accepting applications for the Home Support Worker pilot. It has already halted applications under the child care pilot, and potential candidates must wait until January 1, 2020, to apply.

The IRCC has set a few requirements and objects that candidates must have to ensure the process runs seamlessly and in a coordinated manner. When filing their processes, candidates under each pilot program will have to file for a work permit in tandem with their permanent residence applications.

Once an applicant undergoes the assessment and screening processes successfully, IRCC will award them temporary work permits. One peculiar thing about this permit is that it allows a candidate to work as a child caregiver or home support worker for any employee, so long as the Canadian government does not blacklist them.

Another advantage of the temporary work permit is that one gathers and accumulates their years of experience as they continue to work. It is a great opportunity to reach the 24-month experience required for an individual to be considered for permanent residence. It will be up to the government to make the final and ultimate decision regarding one’s application.
