Pilot programs for caregivers

Both of the pilot projects had a maximum of 5,500 submissions spread out across a variety of categories in the year 2023. There has been a reduction in the number of months of experience required to be eligible for caregiver tracks in Canada, which was previously 24 months.

  • The minimum amount of experience required for caretakers working within Canada is one year.
