Subject: live in nanny sponsor
I am a PR and I am looking for a live in nanny to look after my children.

1) How much income do I need to have to sponsor a live in nanny?
2) Can I sponsor my friend or a relative as a live in nanny from my native country?

Thank you.

:you can sponsor a relative or friend.


my opinion about income:

your income must be 80K annually, and better if combined with spouse´s income.

i dont really know the exact amount, but thats to apply safely.


i knew friends who hired nanny, with their income as only, 50K. and it was turned down.

what country are u from?

Hello hire, thanks for the reply. I am from India.

Can anybody apply as a nanny as long as they have some basic experience or do they need to take a special nanny course?

Hi,

1) How much income do I need to have to sponsor a live in nanny?

==> The foreign worker officer who will assess your application will make sure that your income (or combined family income) will be sufficient for the composition of your family and that you will be able to afford paying the Nanny the salary as per the current rate (in Ontario, the minimum salary for a Live-in caregiver is $9.25/hr).

2) Can I sponsor my friend or a relative as a live in nanny from my native country?

==> It is possible as long as he/she is qualified. The prospective employee should have at least 1 year of paid experience related to the position or at least 6 months training. In some countries they offer Live-in Caregiver Diploma as approved by their Ministry of Education. Other health related courses may be considered also.

Please be aware that aside from the requirements above you still need to ask for a LMO from HRSDC... again there will be requirements before you can apply for LMO... If you obtained a positive LMO then your potential employee can now apply for a work permit in India. Again, positive LMO is only one of the requirements in applying for a work permit.

Let me know if you need further assistance...

Sincerely,
elopez

question is, is it a big problem for a live in caregiver if she is laboring a baby in canada? and how long will it take the fiance and daughter to come over. And is it a tourist only or the fiance can apply for a residency?

thanks

Ms Sharon,

Actually my wife is going to canada next month, she will be working as a live-in caregiver. She is 2 months pregnant, the expect date of giving birth is november. My question is how will I and my daughter will go there to look after my wife and baby? My 2nd question is, is it posible for me to find work there if iv been given a chance to visit my wife and apply for a resident. And is it thru that if the baby is born in canada , the goverment of canada will support the babys family because i heard that the population in canada is low?

Thank you.

1) how can your wife work as a live in caregiver when she is pregnant?

2) I am not sure what the rules are about accompanying family members when it is a Caregiver position. I don´t think there is any provision for you to come to Canada unless it is as a visitor - and that gives you no entitlement to work.
3) the idea that the government will support the baby´s family because the population is low is a simple myth.


I would not be surprised if your wife´s pregnancy voids her permit as she will not be able to do her job in 6 months time.
