Live in Caregiver Application Timelines
If you are planning to submit a Live in Caregiver Work Permit application it is recommended to start the process immediately. The Live in Caregiver application is like any other application when it comes to Work Permit the applicant has to go through a two step process. The first step is for the employer to go through a Labour Market Impact Assessment also known as LMIA, this process can take about six to eight months to get finalized. Advertising the job posting to Canadian citizens or permanent residents have to be up for about four weeks, after passing the time frame of posting the position the posting comes down and have to wait for Service Canada's decision which could take couple of months. Once the employer receives a Positive LMIA, the foreign worker can then file for a Work Permit application in their country of citizenship which could take about a couple of months. So if you are looking at hiring a living caregiver or if you are living caregiver that has a job offer, start the application immediately the processing times are out of everyone’s hands, it is up to the consulate and there is no way to request expeditious processing times.
