How to become a caregiver in Canada.

Do you have medical and/or teaching experience? Are you of the kind of person who would bear cross caring after those in need — children, the elderly, or people with special needs (including those with orthopedic impairments)? Do you want to have a regular and fair compensation and social guarantees?

Then becoming a caregiver in Canada might be the right option for you.

Canada’s demand for nursing services is high and growing, which prompted the government to start a federal program to attract qualified specialists. Immigrants are eligible for the program as well.

There are several specific requirements for a prospective caregiver:

– 22 to 49 years of age;

– Certificate of secondary education;

– One or more years of experience, preferably within the last two years, with no less than six months working with a single employer.

– English- or French-speaking.

A caregiver’s hourly rate starts at CA$10.25 per hour assuming 8-hour work day and 40-hour work week.

The federal program is remarkably flexible: if the nurse and the client (patient) do not get along for whatever reason, this is not considered a disadvantage for the former. The caregiver can contract with a new employer. Moreover, he or she will not be required to leave Canada and will not lose the time of presence required to obtain citizenship during the investigation of the reasons of tensions with the previous patient.

If you meet the above requirements and find the job attractive, you can apply right now.
