Does Canada give open work permits to live-in caregivers as soon as they enter Canada?

No. Live-in caregivers entering the program must work for the employer specified in their Labour Market Opinion (the document from Employment and Social Development Canada authorizing the employer to hire the worker) and under the conditions specified in the work permit. They are only eligible for an open work permit after they have met their work obligations under the program and applied for both permanent residence and an open work permit.
