If you are hired as a temporary foreign worker in a low-wage position, your employer must:
- ensure that suitable and affordable accommodation is available; or
- provide you with suitable accommodation at a price that you can afford; or
- offer you accommodation in their primary residence.
If you are a caregiver and live in your employer’s primary residence, they cannot charge you for your rent or meals. Your employer must provide you with a private, furnished bedroom that:
- has a lock and a safety bolt on the inside, and a window; and
- meets safety standards of the municipality and the province or territory.
If you are a temporary farm worker hired under the Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program or the Agricultural Stream, accommodation details can be found in your employment contract signed by you and your employer.
