How many hours is full time as live in caregiver in ontario

Discussion in 'Foreign Workers' started by wangjn163, May 4, 2011.

  1. There are many options :30 hours /week 35hours /week 37.5hours/week 40hours /week.
    I am still confused to 3900hours .Is that standard hours to immigrate
     
  2. http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/resources/manuals/bulletins/2011/ob275C.asp

    3900 / 2 yrs = 1950 hours per year
    1950 hours / 52 weeks = 37.5 per week

    Please correct me if Im wrong.
     
  3. So if I am being paid for 40hrs a week and it's also in my contract that I will be working 40hrs a week...does it mean I can apply earlier than finishing 24mos?
     
  4. But there is no minimum hours of full time in ontario .Only maximum hours is 48 hours per week .I don not know how to deal with a trouble .My contract is 35hours per week and my employer deal with my tax according to it .So that means no 3900hours in 2 years .I want to apply to option 1----24month.what should I do?
     
  5. 3900 hours in 22 months is acceptable.

     
  6. Immigrate standards :
    1) 37.5 hours per week experience for 2 years within 4 years
    2) 3900 hours of work experience in 22 months within 4 years

    I am working 35hours/week .what should I do if I apply PPR after 2years ?who can help me answer this question ?Thanks a lot in advance .
     
  7. why no one reply me ?It is urgent !please!
     
  8. Effective April 1, 2010, live-in caregivers working in Canada under the Live-in Caregiver Program have two options for calculating their work experience to be eligible to apply for permanent residence:

    •24 months of authorized full-time employment, or
    •a total of 3,900 hours (within a minimum of 22 months which may include a maximum of 390 hours of overtime) of authorized full-time employment.

    so meaning you have the option 1 to qualify. finish your 24 months no matter how many hours you work to your employer.

    i want to share this FQA link for live-in caregiver..you might get an idea!
     
  10. But how is full time employment measured?

     
  11. look at this scenario:

    Scenario 4:

    I arrived in Canada with a work permit under the Live-in Caregiver Program on May 1, 2006. By the time my work permit under the Program expired on May 1, 2009, I had completed a total of 23 months of authorized full-time employment as a live-in caregiver. Since I did not meet the employment requirement under the Program at that time, I did not apply for permanent residence.

    I decided to start again and submitted an application to a visa office outside Canada for a new work permit under the Live-in Caregiver Program. My application was approved, and I received a new work permit and entered Canada under the Live-in Caregiver Program again on January 5, 2010. My current work permit indicates that I have until January 5, 2013 to complete the employment requirement to be eligible for permanent residence under the Live-in Caregiver Program.

    Can I benefit from the new 4-year period to complete the employment requirement and now apply for permanent residence under the Program?

    Answer:

    Yes.

    To be eligible for permanent residence under the Live-in Caregiver Program, you will need to submit an application for permanent residence and provide proof that you completed at least 24 months or a total of 3,900 hours of authorized full-time employment as a live-in caregiver within the four year period of May 1, 2006 to May 1, 2010.

    You can count the 23 months of full-time authorized employment as a live-in caregiver you completed within the three year period of May 1, 2006 to May 1, 2009 in addition to one month of full-time authorized employment as a live-in caregiver you completed between January 5, 2010 and May 1, 2010. Together, these two periods of employment count towards meeting the employment requirement to be eligible for permanent residence under the Live-in Caregiver Program.
     
  12. As I know in Ontario the definition of full time employment is at least 30 hours per week.
     
  13. I checked the google canada and got the results below.

    Both Statistics Canada and the Ontario government define "full-time" employment as 30 or more hours per week.
