The Contact List
Applicants might have questions, difficulties or complaints pertaining to their employment as live-in caregivers. To address these, they would need to call or visit the labour or employment standards branch for their province or territory. The counsellors at these offices would be able to answer questions that these workers have about their rights as caregivers. In addition, the counsellors would be able to help these caregivers in case the caregivers are having any work-related difficulties with their employers.
On occasions, when people call the labour or employment standards branches for their provinces or territories, they might come across pre-recorded messages. They would need to stay on the line and follow the directions that they receive. In case the recorded message does not answer their question, a counsellor would eventually come on the line. However, it is worth highlighting that these numbers are frequently in use. Therefore, it might take more than one attempt to get through. As such, the people calling these numbers will need to be patient.
In case the caregivers prefer, they could also write in to the office responsible for labour laws or employment standards in their province or territory. For this, they would need to write a letter that clearly indicates their question or concern. Then, they would need to mail it to the address shown. These people would need to ensure that they include their names and occupations (the work they do) and how the authorities can get in touch with them. For this, they would need to provide their phone numbers and addresses. In some situations, the caregivers might need to get assistance quickly. For this, they would need to call as calling is faster than writing. It is worth mentioning that the counsellors at these offices are available for helping people working as caregivers. Hence, the caregivers should not hesitate in getting in touch with these individuals.
For additional details, the caregivers would need to visit the website of Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC).
