The Live-in Caregiver Program & Canadian Immigration

Did you know: The Live-in Caregiver Program is a great way for someone with, or without, a nursing degree to apply for Canadian Permanent Residence. After two years of full-time employment in Canada (3900 hours), working as a live-in caregiver, you are eligible to apply for Canadian Immigration, but first you have to obtain the job offer, and then apply for the work visa.
