Care Workers Online Monthly Meeting

The Home Child Care Worker Pilot (HCCP) and Home Support Worker Pilot (HSWP) programs will expire in June 2024. Many of us are still struggling to apply for permanent resident because of English test and education credential requirements that are excluding many. On top of that, many are still in the backlog waiting for years to be reunited with their families.

But we have an opportunity to win immigration changes for all of us care workers. This is why current and former care workers like you are meeting up to connect, talk about our struggles and what can we do to improve our lives for the better.

The Migrant Workers Alliance for Change (MWAC) is an organization for and by migrants. We are current and former care workers, international students, health care, farm and fishery workers across Canada uniting to win rights at work and immigration justice. Get involved and join us to win fair rules, equal rights and PR status for all of us!

We at Migrant Workers Alliance for Change wants to make sure that we have a safe space for us to talk about the issues that affects our lives while being away from our families. We are a community, we are a family that supports each other to fight for equal rights and fair immigration rules. That is why we encourage you to come to our meetings that happens every month to meet others like you.

June 18: Migrant Care Workers Assembly

In June 2024, Home Child Care Pilot (HCCP) and Home Support Worker Pilot (HSWP) programs will expire. We don’t know what program will replace it. This is a crucial moment to meet and put our heads together and make plans to win changes and fairness to immigration rules for care workers.

Join us on Sunday, June 18 at 11am in Toronto (720 Spadina Ave, Suite 202, M5S 2T9) for a meeting to discuss our demands to the government and plan for actions. All former and current care workers are welcome to join. Bring your care worker friends especially those who haven’t applied for PR or those who can’t because they are not eligible. You can also tell us what your major concerns are and what you want to be changed. We are all in this together.

Register below so that we know how many of you are coming in order for us to determine if we have enough space for everyone.

Care Workers: Online Info Session on Reduced Work Experience to Apply for PR

On February 10, 2023, Minister Sean Fraser announced that the amount of work experience in Canada required for a caregiver to qualify for permanent residence is being reduced from 24 months to 12 months.

In addition, some spaces under the existing caregiver pathways have been reserved for caregivers who already have work experience in Canada from a previous work permit so that they are able to apply for permanent residence.

Register below to come to an information session on Thursday, April 20th, to find out how you will be affected and what to do to prepare.
