Live-in Caregiver Work Permit is originally created for individuals who want to participate in the Live-in Caregiver Program and work as a Live-in Caregiver. He/ She has to be qualified to provide either care for children, elderly persons or persons with disabilities in private homes without supervision.

However, please be reminded that some changes have been made to the Canada’s Caregiver Program which took effect on November 30, 2014

If you already have a Live-in Caregiver Program work permit and you want to extend it or change jobs to work with another employer who agrees to a live-in arrangement, you may apply for a Live-in Caregiver Program work permit.

Live-in Caregiver Work Permit

Due to the changes of the Live-in Caregiver Program effective November 30, 2014, if you have not worked in Canada under the Live-in Caregiver Program, you must apply for a regular work permit.

If you already have a Live-in Caregiver Program work permit and you want to extend it or change jobs to work with another employer who agrees to a live-in arrangement, you may apply for a Live-in Caregiver Program work permit.

If you plan to choose to live out of your employer’s home, you will be considered as leaving the Live-in Caregiver Program, hence:

  • You will need to apply for a regular work permit. Your current or future employer will need a new Labour Market Impact Assessment before you apply.
  • The work you do on a live-out basis may count towards the work requirement in order to apply through either the Caring for Children or Caring for People with High Medical Needs pathway.
