The Live-in Caregiver Program is the program you should choose. It promotes the youth exchange through international staffing solutions at standards of excellence.
The program allows professional caregivers (social assistants, nurses, pediatricians, teachers etc), au pairs and nannies to work in Canada for a period of 2 years.
After completing the program you have the opportunity to apply for Canadian permanent residence. Caregivers are individuals who are qualified to work without supervision in a private household providing care for children, elderly persons or people who have disabilities. The live-in caregiver must live in the employer's home. You are provided with board and lodging charged from the salary, health insurance and a net monthly salary from 850 to 1200 CAD.

- You must have six months of full-time training in a classroom setting or twelve months of full-time paid employment, including at least six months of continuous employment with one employer in a field or occupation related to the job you are seeking as a live-in caregiver;
