Canada could Repeal Medical Inadmissibility for Excessive Demand as Early as April

After months of public discussion regarding certain medical inadmissibility restrictions in immigration applications, action was taken by the Federal Liberal Government this week. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Minister, Ahmed Hussen, declared that a plan has been made and presented to repeal some of these policies.

Canadá Suspende los Caminos a la Residencia Permanente para Cuidadores de Niños

Para sorpresa de numerosos cuidadores de niños extranjeros, esta semana el gobierno de Canadá anunció drásticos cambios en el programa que afecta su proceso inmigratorio. A partir del 29 de noviembre de 2019, se dejarán de aceptar solicitudes para la residencia permanente por parte de niñeros de otros países que se desempeñan en hogares canadienses. Debido a que el programa exige a los aspirantes tener dos años mínimos de experiencia cuidando niños en Canadá a tiempo completo para ser elegibles, los trabajadores que se encuentran actualmente en el país pero que no cumplirán los dos años para el 29 de noviembre de 2019 no podrán enviar una solicitud.

Canada to Suspend Permanent Residence Path for Child Caregivers

Caregivers, families and their lawyers were caught by surprise this week when the Government of Canada surreptitiously announced changes to the Permanent Residence through the Caring for Children Program. The government website now reads that “We will stop accepting applications for this permanent resident program on November 29, 2019. If you don’t have two years of full-time work experience as a caregiver before it closes, you won’t be eligible to apply”.
