Caregiver fraud similar to marriage fraud

Canada Border Services Agency: Marriage Fraud

Citizenship And Immigration Dept: One would assume that the Canadian government expects caregivers to work for the family long term, given that changes to the Live-in Caregiver Program require the family to pay all recruitment fees, airfare, medical and workers’ compensation, according to Vancouver Sun. Kenney has made it clear that he takes marriage fraud seriously, as Citizenship and Immigration Canada states: “There are some people who think marriage to a Canadian citizen will be their ticket to Canada. It is a crime for foreign nationals to marry Canadian citizens or permanent residents only to gain entry into Canada.” Yet there is no issue with caregivers using Canadian families to gain entry to Canada, with no intention of working for them and similar to marriage fraud, a number of overseas caregivers are using Canadian families to gain entry into the country with no real intention of working for the family long term. And Immigration Minister Jason Kenney is giving them the green light to do so. The caregiver has no legal obligation to work for the family, however. Most agencies are well aware of caregivers who, once they clear customs, don’t even make it to the employer’s home. Citizenship and Immigration Canada or the Canada Border Services Agency usually respond to concerns by saying that “there is not much we can do.” As reported in the news.
