Our clients are thrilled with the freedom and flexibility our live-in senior caregivers offer:

We are so happy we decided to select a Live-in Caregiver and stay in our own home as long as possible. We had considered selling our home and moving to a Retirement Home. We have friends who deeply regret moving to a Seniors Retirement Home. They feel they have been left behind by the real world. Our children are really happy with our decision to go with a Live-in Caregiver. We get to keep our independence, and are safe and secure. Our Caregiver is helping with shopping, meals, laundry and the house, and this takes the burden off our children. We’re learning about another culture and enjoying new recipes. We enjoy helping Aloma to learn about Canada we’re happy that Aloma will be attending classes to attain her Canadian equivalency. We also accept there will be future replacements. When it’s time for Aloma and future caregivers to move on we hope they will be fully prepared if they decide to stay in Canada permanently.

The second payment of $645 is due once the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) has been approved.

The first payment includes any work completed up to and preparing for the LMIA. It also covers a $700 retainer fee we pay on your behalf to our ICCRC licensed Immigration consultant for representation and advice on your application.

Additional immigration services from our Registered Immigration Consultant can be provided at additional cost. This includes services such as Re-entry Visas, or Work Permit Renewals or Extensions. The above fees do not include the $1,000 LMIA fee payable to the Government of Canada. Please refer to the FAQ section for a quick summary of your responsibilities as an Employer.
