This is story quite interesting. Perhaps the time has come for the government to ban the activities of intermediary agents and recruiters in the caregiver system. In fact, the entire set up of the program is questionable, as it is a constant focus of abuse by both employers and caregivers who misrepresent their true relationship. I have seen many cases in my office of caregivers who found themselves in similar circumstances, and others who willingly participated in misrepresenting their true intentions in coming to Canada, while yet another group never had any intention to comply with the terms of the program and knew in advance that they would not be living in the employer's premises. the program needs a complete makeover with a strong enforcement element, but the politicians prefer to duck the issue because it risks offending Filipino constituents.
