CAREGIVER

The goal of this program is to provide caregivers with essential local experiences and a thorough understanding of this career path. ULI's Caregiver program opens doors for individuals interested in caregiving by preparing them to work as professional caregivers, and offering hands-on experience through practical work placements. These work experiences offer new insights into Canada's multicultural environment. Working in such diverse settings is valuable whether international students plan to return to their home country or remain in Canada.

The program will equip you with the knowledge and develop the attitude, approach, and skills critical to the well-being, comfort, safety, and health of your clients. Caring for young children and older adults prepares students to provide companionship, assistance with keeping appointments, medication reminders, help with household chores, and support for participating in an active and healthy lifestyle.

If you are an international student interested in pursuing a career in caregiving, we offer excellent programs where you can learn about the Canadian healthcare system, improve your English skills, and gain meaningful work experience.
