Federal Live-in Caregiver Program success rate for previous 5 years 2016 – 2020

Federal Live-in Caregiver Program success rate for previous 5 years 2016 – 2020

Good day ladies and gentlemen, this is IRC news and I am Joy Stephen, an authorized Canadian Immigration practitioner bringing out this Data Analysis release from the Polinsys studios in Cambridge, Ontario. Today is the 30th of Mar, 2022.

Today we are going to do some data analysis on the total applications for Permanent Residence applications processed for the federal Live-in Caregiver program for the previous 5 years between 2016 and 2020. This program is doing well as with the aging population, this program is likely to be enhanced. This data could give us some idea on the growth trajectory of the program and the success rate of the program. 

On my screen is the chart highlighting the data for 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020. We will discuss the success rate trajectory and the popularity of the program or in other words the increase in numbers year over year for this program. In 2016, we saw a total number of applications at 20757 with 19653 approvals providing a very health success rate of around 95%. In 2017 out of 20199 applications, 19392 applications were successful with a good success rate of around 96%. Let us now move on to 2018, where the processed applications were a healthy 15797 applications and a approved number of 14847 with a success rate of 94%. In 2019 the number of applications reduced dramatically to 5908 applications processed and had an approval number of 5537 with a success rate of 94%. OK, 2020 was the final year of full data we have and considering the Pandemic, the total was a low number of 590 applications and an approval number of 495 with an average rate of 84% success rate. Overall, the trajectory of numbers and success rate is going down where the numbers as well as the success rate reduced. The trajectory for this program for success rates is possibly going down but could improve.
