Immigration, Refugees and immigration Canada (IRCC)’s Live in Caregiver Program allows hiring a Foreign Caregiver for the following family members in a household:
• a child
• an elderly person
• a person with disability
Popularly known as the ‘Nanny’, Caregivers provide great support in taking care of a household. Their role is both important and vital towards functioning of society. Entry through a Caregiver Visa helps meet the supply-demand equation for this profession as there are not many Canadian are not ready to take the jobs.
Live in Caregivers may choose to reside in the house where they work. While the hiring of a Live in Caregiver is a two tier process, the third milestone for such a Caregiver could be the application for Permanent Residence of Canada (PR Visa) after acquiring the requisite work experience (2 years).
