All Employers who want to hire an overseas in-home caregiver must hire them through these 2 pilot programs.
If a temporary foreign worker (TFW) is in Canada, they must submit the Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) application along with all the required supporting documentation to Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC)/Service Canada. In essence, employers are applying for an opinion on the impact that hiring a TFW would have on Canada's job market. Employers are required to advertise the position to ensure Canadians have first access to available jobs.
A caregiver/temporary foreign worker, who is already in Canada, will still require a new LMIA when changing employers. The caregiver must additionally submit a work permit renewal application before her work permit expires. If you're employing a caregiver you must also file a new LMIA in order for your caregiver to renew her work permit.
