" The Live-in Caregiver Program (LCP) brings qualified temporary workers to Canada to provide in-home child care, senior home support care or care of the disabled. " Yes they are Economic immigrants but people are using the wrong terminology , because it is more easy for themkevindurant1 wrote: ↑ You didnt read post #374.
Live in caregivers are sponsored. They are economic immigrants.
It is a hiring process . In this case both LCP and Sponsorship program use same technical term like " sponsor " , but they are 2 different classes one of them is a hiring process the other is to reunite family . The term " sponsor " is used by people , because it is more easy to understand . When you read immigration website , they will not use that term only for Family Sponsorship .
# 350 " If you know how immigration works, you should know that immigrants rarely go on assistance. They cant come here without funds. They need to be sponsored. When they do go on assistance. The sponsor has to pay back all the money they got from the government. "
- This is a wrong statement . Immigrants don't need to be sponsored . Only family sponsorship
# 361 " Its not common for immigrants to go on welfare and when they do their sponsor has to pay back all the money. "
- Depends what class of immigrants . TFW or LCP their employer ( AKA : sponsor ) has to pay some penalties . But even in this case they are some regulations .
# 365 " There arent alot of them and they definitely do not go on welfare(which is what the argument here). I dont even know why you would mention them. Most immigrants that come into the country ARE sponsored(family or employer). "
- Most immigrants coming to Canada are Independent Immigrants .
# 372 " You do realize TFW's are SPONSORED by employers right?. Face With Tears Of JoyFace With Tears Of JoyFace With Tears Of Joy. They cannot come here by themselves without any contract from an employer. They are not "independent". They are here for contract work from their employer who SPONSORED them. They fulfill their contract or they have to leave. "
- The employer does not Sponsor them . Terminology used by people , because is easy . It is a work contract , totally different than Sponsorship . Again the terminology is not correct , you can check government web site .

Here you will read that for caregivers the term " Sponsor " is not used at all : " Both the employer and the employee must follow several steps to meet the requirements of the Live-in Caregiver Program (LCP). "
