(1) LIVE-IN NANNIES/CAREGIVERS UNDER THE LIVE-IN CAREGIVER'S PROGRAM:- If you are sponsoring a local or international live-in nanny/caregiver under the Live-in Caregiver's Program, we will assist you in preparing your application for a Labour Market Opinion if you need assistance. During the hiring process, we provide you with step-by-step guidance. Once your nanny/caregiver is placed, we provide assistance regarding payroll calculations and remittances to Revenue Canada. We also provide routine follow-up with you and your nanny/caregiver, to ensure mutual satisfaction. The prevailing rate of pay for nannies/caregivers under the Live-in Caregiver's Program in Ontario, is currently $10.86/hr. This will increase to $11.00/hr on June 1st, 2014.
2) LIVE-IN NANNIES/CAREGIVERS:- WHERE NO SPONSORSHIP IS REQUIRED:- These are nannies and caregivers who are either Canadian Citizens; those who have Landed Immigrant Status; or caregivers who have completed 2 or more years under the Live-in Caregiver's Program and have Open Work Permit. These nannies/caregivers are usually paid 20%-30% or more, per hour than Live-in nannies/caregivers who are under the Live-in Caregiver's Program.

For families who do not require a fulltime live-in nanny or caregiver, we offer two Live-out options.

This means that we invoice you for services rendered, and we handle the payroll. This options is available for a minimum of 4 hours per visit to 24-hours, 7 days/week.
