FAQ & Resources

FAQ:

Q:What is the process of obtaining a nanny?

  • For foreign workers, times vary depending on where they are coming from, and if all the required documents are ready for entry to Canada. Current wait times are approximately 42 months from India, 12 -19 months from Singapore, 12-24 months from Philippines, 4-6 months from Hong Kong.
    Having a complete application does not guarantee arrival in the above timeframes as there could be unforeseen delays at any stage including the immigration offices.
    Live-In or Live-Out nannies here in Canada may offer a quicker placement solution but they tend to be in short supply.
