How do I apply as a child care provider for the Caring for Children Pathway?
Starting November 30, 2014, child care providers will have an additional option for applying for permanent residence that is very similar to the Live-in Caregiver Program criteria but without the requirement of living in the home of the employer.
To qualify, you must meet these requirements when you apply for permanent residence:
- two years of full-time work experience in Canada as a home child care provider (National Occupation Classification 4411) within the past four years, authorized with a work permit;
- a minimum language requirement of “initial intermediate” by meeting Canadian Language Benchmark 5 in a designated third-party language test; and
- a Canadian post-secondary education credential of at least one year, or an equivalent foreign credential supported by an Educational Credential Assessment.
