From June 18, 2019 was the launched for the Canada's new caregiver immigration Pilots. It is called now "Home Child Care Provider and Home Support Worker Pilot."   The goal is to provide for an easier pathway to Permanent Residence for caregivers in Canada.

You, the employer no longer have to apply for Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) if you are hiring from overseas. This means that you are no longer subject to the $1000 LMIA fee. Unless, you the employer found a local TFW candidate you must obtain an application from Service Canada and the employers must pay $1000 for each position requested to cover the cost of processing LMIA application.
