Our nannies are professional caregivers. They have been trained at a six month caregiving course that is recognized by Technical Education and Skills Development Authority or they have a minimum of one year caregiving experience. Our career nannies also have overseas college education in professions such as teaching, child development, nursing, midwifery, occupational therapy and physical therapy.
How are your candidates screened?
Our candidates screened based on their qualifications, work experience, and reference. Medical examination and police clearance are checked by Canadian Embassy prior to approving the visa application.
How long does the hiring process take?
Generally the process of hiring an overseas nanny takes up to 5 to 9 months also depending on the country they are coming from.
The processing time is dependant on time taken by Canadian Embassy to approve the candidate’s visa application, which is beyond our control.
Hiring a local candidate can be done in around the same amount of time but then you won't have wide selection. When you hire an overseas applicant you will have more choices and able to select the best fit nanny for your family.
How much does a nanny cost?
Nannies wages are determined by Service Canada based on the province and area of the region. Depending on the city and province you live in, they can cost from $10-17 / hour.
