UPDATES on Caregiver Pathway :

⦁    The new pilots, Home Child Care Provider and Home Support Worker, will each have a maximum of 2,750 principal applicants, for 5,500 principal applicants per year, plus their immediate family.

⦁    Initial applications to the new pilots will have a 12-month processing service standard. A 6-month processing standard will apply for finalizing an application after the caregiver submits proof that they have met the work experience requirement.

⦁    Employers will no longer need a Labour Market Impact Assessment before hiring a caregiver overseas with the move to occupation-specific work permits under the Home Child Care and Home Support Worker pilots.

⦁    The expiring pilots will close to new applications on June 18, 2019. Caregivers who have applied before this date will continue to have their applications processed to a final decision.

⦁    Caregivers who have been working toward applying to the soon-to-be-expired pilots can now apply through either the Home Child Care Provider Pilot or the Home Support Worker Pilot.
