Labour market access

From 1 April 2010, the employment of foreign live-in cargivers is subject to new regulation.

Under the new regulation, employers are now required to pay for their live-in cargiver's transportation cost. Also employers must provide workplace safety insurance and health insurance until the caregiver is eligible for provincial insurance schemes.

On 15 March 2012, changes to the Caregiver Program have been announced. The latters offer foreign caregivers the provision of staying out of the home of their employer, work for more than one employer at a time and find another employment even in a different field in Canada. This will be possible due to Canada open visas for foreign caregivers.
