Posted in Live in Caregiver Program

Become a Live-in Caregiver

To be considered under the Live-in Caregiver Program, you must meet the basic requirements.  The below are some of the basic requirements which must be met:

  • you have submitted an application to remain in Canada as a permanent resident;
  • you are a temporary resident;
  • you hold a valid work permit as a live-in caregiver;
  • you entered Canada as a live-in caregiver and have provided acceptable proof of having worked full-time as a live-in caregiver for a total of 24 months or a total of 3,900 hours in a minimum of 22 months within the four years immediately following your entry into Canada under the LCP;
  • you have resided in a private household in Canada while working as a live-in caregiver;
  • you have provided, without supervision, child care, senior home support care, or care of a disabled person in that household;
  • you are not, and none of your family members are, the subject of an enforceable removal order or an admissibility hearing under the Act or an appeal or application for judicial review arising from from such a hearing;
  • you did not enter Canada as a live-in caregiver as a result of a misrepresentation concerning your education, training or experience; and
  • where you intend to reside in the province of Quebec, the competent authority of that province is of the opinion that you meet the selection criteria of the province

A live-in caregiver is not eligible for permanent residence if their spouse or common-law partner is a refugee claimant, or has appealed or sought judicial review.

Misrepresentation of education, training or experience could include misrepresentation by another person as well as by the applicant.

    I got my visitors visa thanks to Shabnam. I just want to thank her and all the team for her hard work. They all did a very good job.

    Shabnam, I wanted to personally thank you for all your hard work and dedication to me and my wife. Our new lives together are all thanks to you. Considering the unique circumstances that initially prevented her, I had lost hope. I will make sure that if anyone I know needs immigration help, I will be sending them your way. Again, I can’t thank you enough.

    Fantastic news, I entered Canada without a hitch. Once the guard at the border saw the package you had prepared for me, he took about ten minutes and handed me my permit. What I relief! I don’t know why I ever tried this without you guys! Thank you!

    Reception was very nice and was sure to answer the questions he could but made sure I was taken care of by a rep at the firm. Shabnam was extremely helpful and I will be calling again when I am ready to proceed.

    Akrami & Associates was extremely professional and the most efficient legal team I have ever had the pleasure of dealing. They responded to my emails quickly, never missed a phone call and explained the process to me in such a way that anyone could understand, even me. Thanks to them, I was able to hire the workers my business needed mush sooner than I had ever expected. You can’t go wrong with them.
