Rules: LCP Program
The Live-In Caregiver Program helps to address the shortage of workers available for live-in care. It is jointly administered by Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) and Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC).
Since few native-born Canadians wish to work as live-in caregivers, the program offers Canadian families and individuals the opportunity to find quality live-in caregivers at affordable salaries.
At the same time it offers qualified foreign caregivers a chance to enter Canada for work with the added benefit of applying for Permanent Residence after having completed the legal requirements of work under the program (currently at 24 months).
