John McCallum Liberal Markham—Unionville, ON

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-690, An Act to amend the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (live-in caregiver).

Mr. Speaker, this bill would set up a system of regulated entities whose job it would be to recruit caregivers on behalf of families.

This would benefit the families who would be spared the bureaucracy and financial risk they currently endure, and it would benefit caregivers because, in the case of a misfit or abuse, the employer would be able to find an alternative family for the caregiver.
