Hiring a Foreign Nanny - What You Need to Know

There's a dire need for child care in Canada. Many cities have shortages of up to forty percent of the required child care spaces, and there's no relief in sight.

It's understandable that many families might be considering hiring a foreign nanny or an au pair, but before you do, there are a few things you should know about the Canadian immigration system.

How to Find Childcare When You Move

Even if you have answered the million dollar question of where to find a daycare near me, found the perfect place and fell in love with the people, life has a funny way of turning things upside down.

I know. Three years ago I was settled in Alberta. My only daughter was in a fantastic daycare, and everything was figured out. Fast forward to today, and I am in British Columbia, I have another 16 month old daughter, and I work from home because I just couldn't find daycare that met our needs when I needed it.
