In order to qualify as a caregiver in Canada, all applicants must meet the requirements set by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) under the foreign caregiver program. The Live-in Caregiver Program allows professional caregivers to work in Canada. Caregivers are individuals who are qualified to work without supervision in a private household providing care for children, elderly persons or people who have disabilities.
The new rules require an employer to obtain a positive Labour Market Impact Assessment in order to hire a caregiver from abroad. The LMIA is needed to prove that hiring of a foreign worker is necessary due to a shortage of locally available caregivers.
There are four main requirements to qualify under the Live-in Caregiver Program:
1. You must have successfully completed the equivalent of a Canadian high school education.
2. You must have six months of full-time training in a classroom setting or twelve months 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 you are seeking, as a live-in caregiver. You may have gained your training or experience in areas such as early childhood education, geriatric care, pediatric nursing or first aid. You may also have completed your training as part of your formal education. This experience must have been obtained within the three years immediately prior to the day on which you submit an application for a work permit.
3. You must be able to speak, read and understand either English or French at a level that allows you to function independently in a home setting.
4. You must have a written employment contract between you and your future employer.
