Abstract

This report looks at live-in caregivers (foreign nationals living in Canadian homes and employed to provide child or adult care) in the context of the oil sands region of northern Alberta. The report illuminates the importance of paid caregivers to the ability of the local workforce to keep up with the demands of employment and family, and examines caregivers’ work experiences, life plans, and views on Canada’s immigration policies.
