Will the time I worked under any work permit help me get permanent residence under the Live-in Caregiver Program?
No. To be eligible to apply for permanent residence under the Live-in Caregiver Program (LCP), you must have applied for the program from outside Canada. Also, a visa officer must have decided that you met the criteria of the Live-in Caregiver Program before you entered Canada and worked as a live-in caregiver. Only time you have worked as a live-in caregiver with a valid work permit under the Live-in Caregiver Program in Canada counts toward the employment requirement for permanent residence.
