Nursing Caregiver

In Canada, there is now what they call the live-in caregiver program which is a great opportunity for a nursing caregiver to live and work in Canada. The caregiver program was initiated due to lack of available local live-in caregivers to work for Canadian families who needs the support and assistance of a nursing caregiver. The aim of the caregiver program is to allow skilled workers like a nursing caregiver to live and work in Canada under certain rules and regulations that governs both the employer and the nursing caregiver. These rules and regulations include the following.

The live-in nursing caregiver must:

  1. Work for an employer in a private home
  2. Live with the employer
  3. Have a private, furnished room within the employers home
  4. Be employed as a nursing caregiver on a full-time basis
  5. Meet the criteria’s set by Citizenship and Immigration Canada for language, education and work skills necessary for a nursing caregiver to function in the Canadian labor market.
  6. Work for only one employer at a time; and
  7. Never work for a health agency or labor contractor, or in day care or foster care.

Being a nursing caregiver can be an excellent stepping stone for nurses especially the newly grads who haven’t taken their professional licensure exam. In many Asian countries especially in the Philippines where there is an overwhelming number of nursing graduates looking for jobs, a nursing caregiver career abroad is an excellent alternative for a local nursing job because a nursing caregiver are more than qualified to become caregivers. Besides the similarity in the job description of a nursing caregiver and an ordinary caregiver, the salary of a nursing caregiver abroad is far more enticing compared to the salary of a local nursing job. You can look for the prevailing salaries of a nursing caregiver in the different provinces of Canada HERE.
