TO ALL EMPLOYERS LOOKING TO HIRE A LIVE IN CAREIGVER FOR THEIR FAMILY:  THERE IS CURRENTLY AN ACUTE SHORTAGE OF LOCALLY AVAILABLE/INLAND CAREGIVERS ON THE LIVE IN CAREGIVER PROGRAM, WITHIN CANADA. THIS HAS BEEN THE CASE SINCE JANUARY OF 2009, EVER SINCE THE GOVERNMENT CRACKED DOWN ON "BOGUS AGENCIES" AND GHOST SPONSORS WHO WERE  FLOODING THE LOCAL MARKET WITH LOCALLY AVAILABLE "RELEASED UPON ARRIVAL" FOREIGN WORKERS. HENCE IF YOUR CURRENT  LIVE IN NANNY (OR  LIVE IN CAREGIVER FOR AN ELDERLY PARENT) IS NEARING THEIR TWENTY FOUR MONTH MARK AND IS ABOUT TO FINISH THEIR TIME ON THE PROGRAM, WE WOULD ADVISE YOU TO PLEASE BEGIN THE PROCESS OF INTERVIEWING, SELECTING AND SPONSORING IN YOUR NEXT LIVE IN CAREGIVER FROM OVERSEAS RIGHT AWAY. THE ENTIRE PROCESS OF BRINGING IN A LIVE IN CAREGIVER FROM OVERSEAS TAKES BETWEEN FOUR AND HALF TO SIX MONTHS DEPENDING ON THE COUNTRY YOU'RE SPONSORING FROM. PLEASE  ALSO NOTE  WHEN SPONSORING FROM OVERSEAS, YOU WILL BE ASKED TO PROVIDE PROOF OF HAVING SUFFICIENT INCOME TO AFFORD A LIVE IN CAREGIVER.
