How CaregiverJobs.ca will help you find a great nanny job in Canada
CaregiverJobs.ca helps nannies and caregivers from around the world find employment in Canada quickly and easily and without significant placement and recruitment fees. It is not easy to find a job for international caregivers in Canada, but our services will work with you to make this process as simple as possible. CaregiverJobs.ca allows you to advertise your caregiver profile and receive job offers directly from Canadian employers in order to secure a position. Employers will contact you directly and you along with the employer will be able to negotiate and agree on the job conditions that are most suitable for both of you. Your employer will also arrange all the documentation required for your work permit in Canada (at no cost to you).

Caregiverjobs.ca puts you in control of the whole process, putting your future in your own hands.



How it works Step by step process:

1. CaregiverJobs.ca will make an assessment of your application and we will approve it for advertising on our web site.

2. Canadian employers and families who are looking for a live-in caregiver or a live-in nanny will search our online database and contact you directly by sending you a direct message. This message will be forwarded to your email address. A list of all your messages can be found in your personal account on CaregiverJobs.ca

3. Once you receive a message, you contact the employer directly by email and set up a phone interview or Skype video interview. Please pay attention to the time difference between your country and Canada.

4. Usually employers will conduct job interviews with a number of candidates and select the one who is most suitable for their needs and requirements.

5. Once you are selected by an employer you will sign a job contract and send it back to the employer.

6. Your prospective employer will accept the contract and submit a request to hire you to the Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC). Once the HRSDC has confirmed the job offer (LMO), it will send the prospective employer a confirmation letter. The prospective employer will be instructed to send a copy of the confirmation letter to you. It could take up to two months before the employer receives a response from HRSDC.

7. Once approved, the employer will send you a copy of your approved LMO.

8. On receipt of the LMO you must apply for a work permit at the Canadian embassy nearest to you.
The Canadian embassy in your country will supply you with a check list for all the requisite documents for this process. Example: APPLICATION KIT - Canadian Embassy, Manila

9. Once you have received a work permit you can come to Canada and begin work for your employer.
