RHYME & REASON
For those who have been wondering about the LCP hotline, a CIC official has confirmed with the province of Ontario that the dedicated hotline for live-in caregivers had been disconnected on 8 February 2011. Vulnerable workers (including live-in caregivers) are instead encouraged to contact the Ontario Employment Standards Information Centre at 1-800-531-5551. This call centre is deemed more effective as it has dedicated agents who could assist callers in 23 languages and dialects.
