Au Pair Canada
Elite Au pairs Canada specialises in providing a cultural exchange experience based on childcare. We screen and match international live in au pairs / nannies with Canadian families in need of childcare support. Our services are for both au pairs registering to spend some time in a different country and Canadian Hosting families, by providing the best Caregiver selection process on the market.
We provide a Personalized Matching service by carefully selecting au pairs to ensure that your unique family requirements are met, our program allows both au pair and host family to mutually select / accept each other after receiving several options.
All of our overseas Au Pairs and Nannies have undergone a police check to make sure they are good citizens and emotionally stable. They will have a minimum of 200 hours of baby sitting experience and need to supply a min. of 2 childcare references which are verified by our agency. All Au Pairs have undergone an in depth interview, covering questions on areas such as maturity, responsibility and capability with children to make sure they understand the Au Pair job and all associated responsibilities.
Elite Au pairs Canada only works with reputable and established overseas agencies in France, Australia and the Uk that comply with the IAPA code of conduct and we have long standing relationships with them. We are actual people and not just a web based service, with no one to answer your questions. We also offer personal service and provide continued support for the entire duration of the placement of your Au Pair.
We understand families are busy and have many years of experience in bringing Au Pairs and families together. We will consider your requirements and lifestyle and shortlist suitable applicants for you. We will only send you files that are a likely match with your family, and are confident that our selection criteria will produce the right au pair match for your family.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO HAVE AN AU PAIR?
Au Pair comes from the French word En pair meaning equal to, so an Au Pair is not an employee but becomes a member of the family / household and should be treated as such. Au Pairs are on a cultural and language exchange, and therefore are always from an overseas country. The host family invites the Au Pair into their house to share all facilities of the house and will have their own bedroom. In exchange, the Au Pair will assist the family with child care and some related duties, receive an allowance and learn the local language and culture.
Hosting an overseas live in Au Pair or Nanny is very cost effective and can be used by families with children of all ages.
We would be delighted if you, as host families take the opportunity and the benefits to host an International Au pair, while giving young people an insight into a Canadian family life, and allow them to discover the Canadian culture.

Would you like us to introduce you to a suitable Au Pair or Nanny? Please register here
We will introduce you to a wide variety of Au Pairs/Nannies who we interview prior to assessing their suitability. The best reason to hire an au pair is that it's inexpensive. You pay a set amount, regardless how many children you have. You also pay a fixed placement fee to our agency, but even after accounting for them, the cost works out to about $6 per hour.
If you like the idea of an energetic, educated young person living with you for a limited time at a low pay rate, this program might be for you.
What's our procedure for matching families with potential au pairs?
We pride ourselves on providing one-on-one matching. In other words, instead of hitting you with a slew of applications, we very carefully identify two to five candidates who closely meet your criteria, then present their information to you. Our agency allows you to interview and choose among the selected candidates ( or to say "No, please give us further options") without the pressure of other families having access to the same group, that saves you time.
What happens if your au pair does not work?
Our Agency will either help resolve the problem or line you up with a new au pair on a discounted basis.
What about day care centers?
A Day care center can offer a lot of fun, stimulation, and social time for your children. But day care centers can also mean less individual attention - not to mention more exposure to other kids' colds and illnesses. The average child under the age of three who's in day care picks up two illnesses a month. And if your child gets sick and needs to stay home, you'll have to find alternate care. Moreover, many day care centers have an age minimum. If you're looking for infant care, you may need to start with something else - perhaps a nanny. Or the center may charge more for infants and young toddlers than for preschool age children.
It is very important to find a qualified Au pair agency, with experience matching au pairs and host families together. We place great emphasis on individually tailored au pair profiles and lead, in principle, detailed preliminary discussions with the au pair candidates and host families in order to meet the expectations and needs of all parties, as much as possible.
