Changes to the Live-in Caregiver Program as of November 2014

The government of Canada has announced reforms to the Live-in Caregiver Program in November 2014.
The reforms do not influence caregivers who want to apply for work in Canada under this program, mostly the changes are for those who are already in Canada working. The requirements for new applicants have not changed.

The improvements for those who already work as nannies or caregivers in Canada will mean:

  • Faster processing time for Permanent Resident Status

  • Faster family reunification caregivers will bring their families to Canada in a shorter period of time

  • Better career opportunities in future

  • Better protection against potential abuse at work

  • The live-in requirement for caregivers has been ended, now foreign in-home workers can live out and do not have to stay in their employer's home.
