Out of Status Caregiver Issued Work Permit and Permanent Residence Finalized
A caregiver who had completed two years under the former live-in caregiver program submitted her permanent residence application. Unfortunately, while waiting for her permanent residence application to be finalized, she inadvertently lost her temporary resident status in Canada. Canadian immigration advised the caregiver that without temporary resident status, her application for permanent residence would be refused.
She approached our office for assistance regarding her situation. Although she had been out of status for over two years, with our extensive submissions, the caregiver was issued a new work permit and her permanent residence application continues to be processed. Her permanent residence application is now in the final stages and we anticipate she will receive her confirmation of permanent residence shortly.
