Subject: To Sharon - Baby Sitting Question
  I´m currently in Canada witing to hear back about my PR application. I have been asked if I could baby sit a few times a month. I know I cannot work but is baby sitting classed as a job when you don´t work many days and get paid 4 bucks an hour for a few hours each day you baby sit. It will give me something to do because I am stir crazy cooped up with no life at the moment.

Thanks you.

Sharon,

This is exactly what happens when you find a situation which is illegal but does no harm to anyone. Although it would be illegal but won´t "screw up the system"...eh?

if you are full-time student, it´s legal to work off-campus! In fact, if anybody say this is illegal, do you know how many people work for cash job in this country? How many people do not report their tips income and commission?

Just don't report it (in reply to: To Sharon - Baby Sitting Question)
If you get paid in cash ... and there is now way they trace that back to you for tax purposes then that´s fine ... especially if it is a small amount ...

You get flagged or something if your unexplainable wealth get´s into the thousands amount

Sharon,

I think you got my point, atleast after all the discussion we had previously...you were 14 but this person is not and would be doing it illegally and your reply prompts her/him to do it. Since I understand the triviality of the work in the big picture in a lighter vein I was just bringing your attention to your own contradiction, remember-- "As a Canadian, I get protective when someone wants to screw with our system. Can?t help myself. so those are the reasons I care."

Dbay,

First of all who told you she/he is a student; it´s your blind assumption which is probably wrong as the person says in the posting that there is nothing to do. Secondly, I really don´t know the exact number of people working illegally for cash jobs...do you :)? Hmmm we need to do some survey!
Hey, I and Sharon had been discussing some issues in the previous post and my reply is in that context so don´t get excited. And same goes for Texan.

I agree that wrong is wrong... but somewhere in there is fraud and somewhere is casual income.

I answered the question in jest, half expecting your response.

Off Campus employment (in reply to: To Sharon - Baby Sitting Question)
On April 18th 2005 Minister Volpe announced that foreign students are able to work off campus. What wasn´t released to the public was that the foreign student in question must have completed 2 terms as a full time student and acheive minimum academic standards. If the foreign student meets those requirements they have to apply for an open work authorization via there educational institution. The college or University would validate to CIC that the foreign student is in fact enrolled in full time studies. Furthermore, each Canadian province has to reach an agreement with HRSDC and CIC before the implementation on this new foreign student initiative can take effect. As of 08/05/05 only three provinces have done so. If you have any questions please consult your local CIC office or the call centre 1-888-242-2100 instead of the "experts" in this forum.
