Can I change employers under the Live-in Caregiver Program?

November 9, 2014 Our Blog

Yes, you may change employers under the Live-in Caregiver Program. However, you must first sign an employment contract with your new employer so that your new employer may apply for a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). After Employment and Social Development Canada issues a positive LMIA, you must apply for a new work permit.

You can change jobs for personal or other reasons. You will not be deported for looking for another place to work.

There are several other steps you must take before you change employers, including asking your current employer for some documents. For more information, see Changing Jobs.
