In-Canada Application for Permanent Residence (Live-in Caregivers)

The Live-in Caregiver Program (LCP) is closed to new applicants. You can only apply for permanent residence under the Live-in Caregiver Program (LCP) if you:

  • are already working in Canada with an LCP work permit, or
  • were approved for your first LCP work permit based on an employer's positive Labour Market Impact Assessment application submitted on or before November 30, 2014

Otherwise, you may still qualify for permanent residence through the Caring for Children or Caring for People with High Medical Needs classes.
