Policy Submission: Caregivers Call for Landed Status on Arrival

Published on May 18, 2018

Caregivers Action Centre, in collaboration with several Caregiver Organizations across the country, participated in recent Federal Consultations about the Caregiver Program. What we are hearing from caregivers across Canada, and what we have been hearing for decades, is that caregivers need to be able to come here with their families and Permanent Residency from day 1. We submitted the following policy recommendations to the Federal Government for them to review before putting any new policies in place. We will continue to mobilize and push for change so that all migrant caregivers can come here and stay here with their families, and have access to decent and dignified work and lives.
