Changes to Canada’s Caregiver Program
The government of Canada has announced changes to the Caregiver Program (formally known as the Live-in Caregiver program). One of the biggest changes is the elimination of the live-in requirement. Specifically, caregivers will no longer be required to reside in the home of their employer.
Also, on November 30th, the government will be launching an expedited pathway for those caring for children and people with high medical needs. Their applications will be processed within six months.
