Becoming a Live in Caregiver in Canada

Posted in Live in Caregiver Program

In Canada there is a shortage of Live-in Caregivers. To address this problem, the federal government has introduced a program to enable private households to hire care givers from abroad. This program is called the 'Live-in Caregiver Program' and it allows suitably qualified people from other countries to enter Canada and work as Live-in Caregivers.

A major benefit of the 'Live-in Caregiver Program' for many foreign applicants is that it provides a way of immigrating to Canada. After a minimum of 2 years full-time work as a Live-in Caregiver in Canada, the foreign worker may apply for 'Permanent Residence' (also known as landed immigrant status), which confers most of the benefits of Canadian citizenship. Canadian citizenship can be obtained after a few years as a Permanent Resident.

Although the concept of immigrating to Canada via the Live-in Caregiver Program is quite straightforward, the immigration process required to become a Permanent Resident can be quite complicated.

    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.

    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.
