About the process 

The Live-in Caregiver Program is closed to new applicants. You can
only hire a caregiver through the program if you have: 

 found a caregiver who already has a work permit in the Live-in
Caregiver Program and who is looking for a new employer and 

 been approved for a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA)
that shows the caregiver has agreed to live in your home

 If this does not apply to you, you can still hire a foreign caregiver. You
and the caregiver can decide if they will live in or out of your home.
You will need to get a positive LMIA from Service Canada and the
caregiver must apply for a regular work permit. 

Who is eligible? 

To hire a caregiver through the Live-in Caregiver Program, you must:

  first, try to fill your position with a Canadian citizen or a
permanent resident 

 be able to pay them

  give them acceptable living space in your home 

 offer them a job caring for  a child
or an elderly person
o a person with a disability

 You must also hire a caregiver who: 

 is already part of the Live-in Caregiver Program 

 wants to continue working on a live-in basis

 If you have found a caregiver who is already part of the program: 

 you will need to get a positive Labour Market Impact Assessment

  the caregiver needs to get a new work permit

  you must include the live-in arrangement in the Labour Market
Impact Assessment application
Caregiving must be the main responsibility of the job.

 For example,
you can’t hire through the Live-in Caregiver Program if the main duties
are house cleaning.
