Canada faces shortage of Live-In Caregivers
At the start of this new century Canada faces significant aging of its population as the proportion of seniors increases more rapidly than other age. In 2003, an estimated 4.6 million Canadian were 65 years of age or older, a number that is expected to double in the next 25 years. Nowadays, it is recognized that there exists a labor market need for live-in caregivers and that there is a shortage of Canadians or permanent residents willing to provide live-in care work to fill these positions. In respond to this need, the Live-in Caregiver Program was established to facilitate the entry to Canada of foreign live-in caregivers.
