Under two new pilot programs — Home Child Care Provider and Home Support Worker — to be announced Saturday and launched Tuesday, their loved ones can also accompany them to Canada and be offered open work permits and study permits to keep the immediate family together, a privilege only high-skilled migrant workers currently enjoy.

The new pilots will each have an annual quota of 2,750 principal applicants, for a total of 5,500 per year, plus their immediate family, said immigration officials.
