Requirements to come to Canada as a caregiver

Post by TomC » Wed Sep 20, 2006 8:44 pm

Can you tell me what one must do to come from the Philippines to Canada as a caregiver or nanny? My neice is a college graduate, has taught elementary school, and wants to become a caregiver in Canada. Where can I locate reputable agencies that may be able to help her?

The issue is that it takes 2 years or more to schedule an interview in the Philippines for the live-in caregiver. visa. My advice is to forget it - I cannot see a genuine employer waiting that long. Your niece is better off to go to Hong Kong or Taiwan for a year where she may be worked half to death, but the processing times are much faster and she stands a much better long-term chance of coming to Canada.
