LMIA AND WORK PERMITS OR VISAS FOR CAREGIVERS
We help Canadian employers to prepare the necessary paperwork in order to hire Live-in Caregivers that are in Canada or abroad. We take care of the LMIA (Labour Market Impact Assessment when applicable) and the preparation of the work permit abroad; or the change of employer on the work permit if the caregiver is in Canada.
Please note that as of June 18, 2019 LMIAs for caregivers won't be needed for people applying outside of Canada, as the Live-in Caregiver Program is closed. You can find more information about the new programs below.

PERMANENT RESIDENCE FOR CAREGIVERS
For live-in caregivers already working in Canada, an LMIA will be needed.
As of June 18, 2019, the Live in caregiver program is closed. In its place, two new pilots are now available for the next 5 years.
The Home Child Care Provider Pilot and the Home Support Worker Pilot allow applicants to apply for Permanent Residence, including their families, after gaining 2 years of experience as a caregiver in Canada. The first part of the applications belongs to the work permit, no LMIA needed, and after 2 years it is possible to continue the application for Permanent Residence.
This program assesses, from the very beginning, the applicant's chances to obtain the Permanent Residence before approving the work permit application. For this reason, the requirements now demand higher qualifications. If you would like to evaluate your chances to apply, call us for a free assessment.
For those of you already in Canada for 20 months or more, then give us a call and we will work with you to evaluate/obtain your specific permanent residency needs as you may qualify under the old program requirements.
Do not risk one of the most important applications you will file in your life by having errors or mistakes. Sometimes a word or a number not written properly can complicate things. You may lose thousands of dollars in lost work opportunities that you could have taken up, had you gotten your open work permit sooner.
Your family members also form part of your application. Do not risk seeing them many months later than planned because you are called for an interview to clarify things that could have been made clear from the start on the original application.
We know how to file your application perfectly. Leave it to Immigration Pros!
