Have anyone seen the new rule they set for those who come to Canada on the care for children pathway? Looks like who don't make 2 years until November 2019 won't be eligible to apply for the PR.
How come they put that new rule? I had a friend applying for the program really soon and he was hoping to be a permanent resident!!

"We will stop accepting applications for this permanent resident program on November 29, 2019. If you don’t have two years of full-time work experience as a caregiver before it closes, you won’t be eligible to apply."

This is just my opinion:

You are correct, she needs to enroll as international student if she wants to take the full time course. But the catch is, if she’s on a temporary work visa, its not possible. She needs to apply fo a student visa.

As far as tution is concern, the best way is to ask the school about mode of payment.


Hi,
I have a question regarding the education requirement for the PR application, my friend is looking to work as a caregiver in Canada under one of the two tracks, however she does not have a degree as she left the course halfway. As a result, she has complete up to high school which is 10 years for the Philippines education system.
1.As such can she be qualified to get a work permit to work as a caregiver in Canada? She does have up to 5 years working experience as a caregiver in another country.
2. For application for Canadian PR after two years working in Canada as a caregiver under one of the two pathways, she needs minimum a post secondary certificate of one year. I have looked at the PSW courses in the community college and i see that it is full time and you would to have to enroll into the course as an international student i believe and the course fee is really high. Did you pay for the course by hand or is there any financial help that can be applied for?

Looking forward to your advise and replies, it would help a great deal. Thank you.

My opinion is: your friend might not get approved if that is the case. Or, if she gets approve, she cant apply for PR. She can only work for a specific time or based on the contract.

Hi everyone! I'm new to the forum and is also in the beginning months of working as a child caregiver. I would like to ask for your opinion or experience regarding my case.

I graduated nursing in the Philippines last 2015 (note: I don't have any work experience prior to my move in Canada) then came here in Canada in 2017 as an international student. I took Gerontology nursing (basically branch of nursing that caters with the elderly population) for 1 year and received my post graduate work permit last November 2017. Now, I started working as a child caregiver since January and my employer will be giving me LMIA work permit after my PGWP expires in November 2018. So my question is, in the future, let's say when I apply for PR, will I be eligible for caring for children pathway (I know they said it's closing but still hoping that they will open it again after the review of the pathway)? I'm worried because I don't really have an experience as a childcare provider but as part of my nursing background, I did complete trainings for taking care of children and basically all lifespan. Also, since I entered Canada as a student and studied a specific branch of Nursing (which is care for the elderly) I'm afraid that it might cause a problem when I apply for PR in the future.

I hope you can give me a piece of advice regarding this. Thanks!

That means you are not under the LiveIn Caregiver Program. You can apply for PR using the New Pathway for Caregivers

I applied under LCP, but I didn't submit any canadian police clearance. they didn't ask for it as well when processing is on going. but if you want to get one, you can.
