SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS

January 09, 2018 - Government of Canada removes processing fee to hire foreign caregivers - Employment and Social Development Canada

March 22, 2017 - "Budget 2017 also proposes to eliminate the Labour Market Impact Assessment processing fee for families seeking to hire foreign caregivers to provide care for persons with high medical needs, and for middle class families with less than $150,000 in annual income seeking to hire foreign caregivers to provide child care. Waiving the fee for these families will ensure that support is targeted at those most in need of assistance to meet their family caregiving responsibilities. The cost of this measure is $24.5 million over five years, starting in 2017–18, and $4.9 million per year thereafter." - Building a strong middle class, Budget 2017-2018, p.70 - Government of Canada

April 28, 2016 - "Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada spokesman Felix Corriveau suggested changes are coming to make regulated companies, rather than families, the legal employers of caregivers. This would save families the hassle of a complicated and expensive application process, and provide oversight of the employment relationship. “It is our intention to modify the temporary foreign workers program to eliminate the $1,000 labour market impact assessment fee to hire caregivers and work with provinces and territories to develop a system of regulated companies to hire caregivers on behalf of families,” Corriveau wrote in an email." - Caregiver fees, refusals frustrate families - Vancouver Sun

January 18, 2016 - "Officials with IRCC also had modify the temporary foreign workers program to eliminate the $1,000 Labour Market Impact Assessment fee to hire caregivers and work with provinces and territories to develop a system of regulated companies to hire caregivers on behalf of families. “Eliminating the $1,000 fee for applications for Labour Market Impact Assessments for families seeking caregivers to care for family members with physical or mental disabilities is a priority for the Government,” said a statement from IRCC.” The Government of Canada is exploring options to implement this commitment.” - Liberals introduce ‘sea change’ to Canada’s refugee system - RCI
