Home Support Services, Caregiver for Elderly and Other Related Occupations

If you are sick or physically unable to complete activities required for daily living, you can hire a foreign caregiver when Canadians and permanent residents are not available. These home support workers and caregivers in Victoria can provide care, in a private residence, to seniors or persons with certified medical needs. 

Tender Care Immigration Services Ltd. is very happy to assist individual families and individual employers. Our in-house Consultant (Maxima Emma Cusi) is authorized to represent employers or to give advice. She is a member with good standing of the Immigration Consultant of Canada Regulatory Council.

Under the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP), families can hire foreign caregivers. However, the caregivers must:

  • Provide care on a full-time basis (minimum of 30 hours per week)
  • Work in a private household where the care is being provided
  • Meet the requirements set by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) as well as Service Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC)

Families and private household employers are able to hire foreign workers as live-in caregivers or live-out support workers.

Main Duties of Home Support Workers
Home support workers provide personal care and companionship for seniors, persons with disabilities and convalescent clients. Care is provided within the client's residence, in which the home support worker may also reside. The home support workers are employed by home care and support agencies and private households, or they may be self-employed. Housekeepers perform housekeeping and other home management duties in private households and other non-institutional, residential settings.

Home support workers perform some or all of the following duties:

  • Provide care and companionship for individuals and families during periods of incapacitation, convalescence or family disruption
  • Administer bedside and personal care to clients such as aid in ambulation, bathing, personal hygiene, and dressing and undressing
  • Plan and prepare meals and special diets, and feed or assist in feeding clients
  • May perform routine health-related duties such as changing non-sterile dressings, assisting in the administration of medications and collecting specimens under the general direction of home care agency supervisor or nurse
  • May perform routine housekeeping duties such as laundry, washing dishes and making beds

To learn more about our home support services and to hire a caregiver for elderly or ailing patients, please contact our caregiver agency in Victoria to speak with our in-house Immigration Consultant. Before hiring a foreign worker as a caregiver, you may need to file a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). Be sure to ask us about this when you call.
