Can I leave the Live-in Caregiver Program and get another type of job?
If you wish to leave the Live-in Caregiver Program (LCP) and get another type of job, you need to find a job first. Then, your new employer must get a positive Labour Market Opinion (a document that an employer in Canada must usually get before hiring a foreign worker). After that, you must apply for a new work permit. For more information, see Changing Jobs.
The hours you work for any employer outside the LCP will not count toward the work experience you need to apply for permanent residence under the LCP.
