Nanny

Live-in Caregiver Information in Canada

by Martha Scully

CanadianNanny.ca is set up to be an online job posting service to assist families in Canada to find a live-in or live-out caregiver in Canada. From our experience, many families appreciate our service and are so happy it’s there to help as an alternative to using an agency, or going it totally alone. However, if you are planning to hire a live-in nanny, there’s so much information to know!

Here at CanadianNanny.ca we get a lot of questions regarding the live-in caregiver program. Due to the nature of our service, there’s only so much we know because we don’t deal directly with the live-in caregiver program, and therefore there’s usually some questions that we can’t answer. Here are some websites to help you out in your knowledge search!
