LCP Processing an Employment Contract

Posted in Live In Caregiver Work Permit

HRSDC/Service Canada informs employers of the legal requirement to have an employment contract with their live-in caregiver.

Employers are required to:

  • provide a signed employment contract to their prospective live-in caregiver;
  • have the live-in caregiver sign the employment contract and return it to the employer; and
  • provide a copy of the signed employment contract to HRSDC/Service Canada along with their LMO application.

HRSDC/Service Canada provides employers with information including, but not necessarily limited to, the following:

  • acceptable wage standards;
  • taxation;
  • health insurance; and
  • workers' compensation and other employment issues.

Once a complete LMO application and signed employment contract are submitted to HRSDC/Service Canada by the prospective employer, a HRSDC/Service Canada officer reviews the application and employment contract. In assessing the offer of employment, the officer confirms:

  • the need for live-in care;
  • that the job offer is genuine;
  • the employer is offering wages and working conditions that meet provinicial/territorial employment standards and labour laws;
  • the job duties are those of a full-time live-in caregiver; and
  • a reasonable search has been caried out by the prospective employer to identify qualified and available Canadian citizens or permanent residents and unemployed foreign caregivers already in Canada.

If satisfied that the offer of employment meets the assessment criteria, the HRSDC Service Canada officer issues a letter confirming a positive/neutral LMO to the prospective employer. If the LMO application is rejected, the HRSDC/Service Canada officer issues a refusal letter to the prospective employer.

Employers are informed by HRSDC/Service Canada that their prospective live-in caregiver must submit a copy of the signed employment contract to the CPC-V as part of the documentation required for the work permit application. HRSDC/Service Canada also instructs the employer to send a copy of the LMO confirmation letter to the live-in caregiver.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.
