New Caregiver Pilot Programs

New Caregiver Pilot Programs starting Jun 18, 2019

Starting Jun 18, 2019, Canada is starting 2 new caregiver programs – Home Childcare Providers and Home Support Workers.

For the first time in Canadian immigration history, Caregivers will be given an occupation-specific work permit instead of an employer specific work permit. Caregiver’s spouse will also be given an open work permit and dependent children, study permits. No LMIA is required for the work permit if you are eligible for the program.

How do the new caregiver programs work? You can use the two-step process to work in Canada and qualify for permanent residence.

Criteria:

  • Valid Canadian job offer for Caregiver
  • CLB 5 language level
  • 1 year of Canadian post-secondary education or foreign equivalent
  • Admissibility

Outside of Canada Application

Step 1:

  • Submit applications for permanent residence and work or study permit(s) for yourself and your family.
  • Get an occupation-specific work permit to obtain the work experience you need for permanent residence.
  • Get work or study permits for your spouse or common-law partner and children to come with you.

Step 2:

  • Inform IRCC when you have completed 2 years of work experience and IRCC will finalize your permanent residence application.

In Canada Application

If you already have some work experience as an in-home caregiver in Canada, you can:

  • Use the 2-step process above to get the rest of the work experience you need to get permanent status

Or

  • Keep working in Canada with your current work permit and apply for permanent residence once you have 2 years of work experience and meet the criteria

There is an annual quota of 2,750 principal applicants. We anticipate overwhelming demand for the program and the quota to be reached quite quickly. 

Please contact us via Facebook or email (contact@1to1immigration.com) if you are interested engaging our service to apply for the New Caregiver Pilot programs.

Vulnerable Foreign Worker Program

Are you currently a Temporary Foreign Worker in Canada and you have been abused at your workplace? Have you been suffering in silence because you are afraid that you will lose your work permit if you make a report against your employer? If you are, you may be eligible for the Vulnerable Foreign Worker Program.

What is abuse?

Any behaviour that scares, controls or isolates you could be abuse. Abuse can be physical, sexual, financial or mental.

Examples of abuse that you should report in your application include:

  • physical harm
  • sexual touching that you did not agree to
  • making unwanted sexual comments to you
  • controlling where you can go
  • stealing from you
  • stopping you from seeing friends or co-workers
  • taking some or all of the money you are paid
  • threats, insults and intimidation
  • forcing you to commit fraud

Vulnerable Worker Program 

If you’re being abused or at risk of being abused in relation to your job in Canada, you may be eligible for an open work permit for vulnerable workers.

An open work permit lets you work for any employer in Canada, except for one that:

This work permit helps protect your rights as a worker in Canada by helping you leave an abusive situation to find a new job. However, it’s a temporary solution and:

  • has an expiry date, and
  • can’t be renewed

If you’re approved for this work permit, it should give you enough time to find a new employer and apply for a new work permit. You must apply for another work permit before this one expires if you want to stay and work in Canada.

Who can apply

You can apply if you:

  • have a valid employer-specific work permit and
  • are being abused or at risk of being abused in relation to your job in Canada

A “valid employer-specific work permit” is a work permit that has your employers name on it and is not expired, or you applied to renew it before it expired.

 

Please feel free to email us (contact@1to1immigration.com) the following information if you would like to engage our service for Vulnerable Foreign Worker Program:

  1. Family Name
  2. Given Name
  3. Mobile Number
  4. Email address
  5. Address
  6. Brief description of the abuse at your work place

All the details you share with us will be treated with utmost discretion and confidentiality.

Are You Eligible to Apply for Canadian Citizenship?

You must meet ALL the following conditions to be eligible to apply for Canadian Citizenship:

  • Permanent Resident Status
  • Time you have lived in Canada
  • Income Tax filing
  • Language Skills
  • How well you know Canada
  • Prohibitions

Alternatively, you can also click on to this link and answer a few quick questions to check if you are eligible to apply for Canadian Citizenship.

Check your eligibility

Permanent Resident status

You must have:

  • Permanent Resident Status in Canada
  • Fulfilled the PR residency obligation

Your PR status must not be in question. This means you must not:

  • be under review for immigration or fraud reasons
  • have certain unfulfilled conditions related to your PR status
  • be under a removal order (an order from Canadian officials to leave Canada)

Time you have lived in Canada

You must have been physically present in Canada for at least:

  • 1095 days during the five years right before the date you sign your application

You may be able to use some of your time spent in Canada as a temporary resident or protected person towards your physical presence calculation. Each day spent physically in Canada as a temporary resident or protected person before becoming a permanent resident within the last 5 years will count as one half day, with a maximum of 365 days, towards your physical presence.

Income tax filing

You must meet your personal income tax filing obligations in three tax years that are fully or partially within the five years right before the date you apply.

Language abilities

Canada has two official languages: English and French. To become a citizen, you must show that you can speak and listen in one of these languages.

If you are 18 to 54 years old, you must submit proof that demonstrates you can speak and listen in English or French.

Examples of proof:

  • Secondary or post-secondary education completed in English or French
  • CELPIP-General – Minimum 4 in Speaking and Listening
  • IETLS- General – Minimum 4 in Speaking and 4.5 in Listening.

Citizenship staff will decide how well you can communicate in English or French during your interview. A citizenship officer will make the final decision on your application.

How well you know Canada (Citizenship test)

To become a citizen, you’ll need to pass a test to meet the knowledge requirement for citizenship if you are between 18 to 54 years old.

Everything you need to know for the test is in Discover Canada: The Rights and Responsibilities of Citizenship.

Prohibitions

If you have committed a crime in or outside Canada, you may not be eligible to become a Canadian citizen for a period of time. Time spent serving a term of imprisonment, on parole, or on probation doesn’t count as time you have lived in Canada.

If you meet all the above conditions and you would like our assistance to help you with your Canadian Citizenship, please email us (contact@1to1immigration.com) with the subject like “Citizenship Application”.

What is Express Entry (EE)?

Bigstock_ 48763355 - Luck is Not a Strategy_picmonkeyed

What is Express Entry or EE?

If you are interested in immigrating to Canada and have been researching online or speaking with friends or immigration professionals, you should have come across this term “Express Entry” or “EE”.

Express Entry is an electronic processing system that Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has adopted in Jan 2015 to process application for Canadian PR for the federal economic streams more efficiently. It is a 2-step process to select immigrants based on the ability to settle in Canada and integrate into the Canadian economy. Successful applicants will receive PR within 6 months of submitting the complete PR application.

Express Entry is NOT an immigration program. To qualify, you need to meet the eligibility requirement for one of the Federal economic immigration programs:

  • Federal Skilled Worker Program
  • Federal Skills Trade Program
  • Canadian Experience Class (CEC)

Step 1: Create an online Express Entry Profile

This will be done electronically. The online profile will provide the following information to IRCC:

  • Skills
  • Work experience
  • Language ability
  • Education
  • Other details (marital status, Canadian experience etc.)

Your profile is valid for one year in the system. You will be ranked against other candidates in the pool using the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). Points are given based on the information provided in the online profile.

Step 2: Invitation to Apply (ITA)

Candidates with the highest scores in the pool will be issued an Invitation to Apply (ITA).

There are usually 2-3 draws per month since Jan 2015. The minimum CRS cutoff score has ranged from 413 to 886. There was a specific draw for Federal Trades Skills Program on May 26, 2017 when the cut-off point was 200. The number of invitation for each draw varies from 715 to 3,923.

Once you are invited to apply, you will have 90 days to submit an online application for Permanent Resident.

Fit attractive couple cycling on mountain trail on a sunny day

IEC is a program designed to allow youth the opportunity to work in Canada for temporary periods. Citizens of countries with a bilateral youth mobility arrangement with Canada who are between 18 and 35 years old may be eligible for IEC work permits.

The IEC program is composed of three categories:

  • Working Holiday
  • Young Professionals
  • International Co-op

A signed contract of employment with a Canadian employer related to the applicant’s professional development is required before applying. The job offered must be classified as a National Occupation Code (NOC) Skill Type Level 0, A, or B.

International Co-op

This program allows citizens of participating countries who are enrolled at a post-secondary institution in their country of citizenship to spend a period of time interning for Canadian companies. Participants must arrange co-op placements with Canadian employers before applying. Applicants must be registered students for the duration of the internship.

 

Eligibility Requirements

Candidates must:

  • be a citizen (passport holder) of one of the 32 countries that have a bilateral youth mobility agreement with Canada;
  • have a valid passport for the duration of their stay in Canada (the work permit issued will not be longer than the validity of the passport),
