Qualifying as a Live in Caregiver

Posted in Live in Caregiver Program

To take advantage of the Canadian Live-in Caregiver Program, you must have:

  •  the equivalent of a Canadian high school education. This requirement is intended to increase the likelihood that participants, who later become permanent residents, will be able to find employment.
  • successfully completed a minimum of 6 months of full-time training in a classroom setting in a training program related to the care giving work which they will be doing or;
  • 12 months of recent, paid caregiving work experience. For example, this work experience may have been gained as an au-pair, by giving geriatric care, or in pediatric nursing. In order to meet this criteria for work experience, you must have completed at least one year of full-time, paid employment, including at least six months of continuous employment with one employer, in a field or occupation related to the job that you will be doing. This experience must have been obtained within the three years immediately prior to the day on which you submit your application for a Work Permit to a visa officer.
  • the ability to speak, read, and understand either English or French at a level that permits you to function independently in a home setting. For example, you must be able to contact emergency services if required and to understand labels on medication. You will be unsupervised for most of the day and may be put in a position of having to communicate with someone outside the home. A good knowledge of English or French will also enable you to read and understand for yourself what your rights and obligations are.
  • You must be in good health (you will have to pass a medical examination) and have no criminal record in the countries in which you have lived.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
