Live in Caregivers in Canada

Live-in caregivers are those who are qualified to provide care to children, elderly persons or persons with disability without requiring supervision. Live-in Caregivers are also required to reside in the home where they work. Both the employer and the employee must follow several steps to meet the requirements of this program.

In order to qualify, you will require the following:

  1. A positive Labour Market Opinion from an employer in Canada: your employer must first have the job offer reviewed and receive a positive Labour Market Opinion prior to offering the position to you
  1. A written contract signed by you and your employer: You and your employer or legally obligated to sign a written contract to be provided with your application. This will ensure a fair working arrangement for you and your employer.
  1. Meet educational requirements: You will have to demonstrate the successful completion of the equivalent of a Canadian secondary school diploma.
  1. Work Experience: You will need to have worked at least on year, including at least six months of continuous employment for the same employer that is comparable to your intended work as a live-in caregiver in Canada. This experience needs to have been acquired within the three years prior to your application.
  1. Language Requirements: You must be able to speak, read and understand either English or French and be able to have functional command of the language in order to be able to work successfully in your employer's home.
  1. Status Prior to Entry: You will need to make your application outside of Canada, if you are successful you will receive a letter notifying you of this from Citizenship and Immigration Canada. Only at this point will you be allowed to enter and receive your work permit in Canada.

Some people are inadmissible–they are not allowed to come to Canada. Several things can make you inadmissible, including involvement in criminal activity, in human rights violations or in organized crime. If you are considered inadmissible to Canada, you may require further documentation to allow entry into the country.

    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.

    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!

    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.
