Hire a foreign worker in Canada
Hiring a foreign worker in the nursing field or the home domestic field in Canada is possible due to regulation that has been changed drastically in the past couple of years. Some of those changes were due to political interests in purpose to minimize the massive immigration of unskilled workers.
Terms to hire a foreigner working in the nursing field:
- The potential employer has to prove to the Canadian government that they have done everything they can in order to find and hire a local worker.
- The potential employer has to prepare a proper accommodation to the foreign caregiver before his/her arrival.
- The potential employer has to present a financial ability to hire a foreign worker.
- The application to hire a foreign caregiver must be in one of the following care fields:
- Child care
- Elderly Care
- Disabled person care
Other than those terms, the potential employer must apply for an LMIA and attached to the application a potential employment contract.
Hiring a foreign caregiver is conditioned only after receiving the LMIA, without it both the employer and caregiver are breaking the law!
