You will need to apply for a regular work permit, not a specific caregiver work permit. You can live in your own home. If you and your employer have agreed that you will live in their home, this should be:
- in your employment contract, and
- noted in the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) request by your employer to Employment and Social Development Canada. Your employer will have to confirm that the accommodation they are providing meets acceptable standards before they get the LMIA.
