When you are looking to hire a nanny it makes sense to go through a local nanny agency. For instance, if you are looking for a nanny in Toronto then find a nanny agency in Toronto, or if you live in Calgary you should go to a nanny agency that services the Calgary area. The same is true for any region or city you live in Canada- always try to go local. Not only will the nanny agency have a specialized knowledge about the area but they will find you quality nannies, familiar to them personally, within your area.
Having a good relationship with a local nanny agency also means that you can meet the agents face to face and build up a relationship with them. In this way you may return to use their nanny agency services each time you require a new nanny. Another great reason to find a local nanny agency in Canada is that you do not have to rely on the phone, email or Skype to interview you nanny candidates.
You can meet the nannies you are interested in face to face. Without even knowing it, you might even find out you know of another family that has used the nanny you want to hire. It makes sense to also speak to local references. Remember, there are a lot of nanny agencies in Canada so search for a local, trusted nanny agency in your area, perhaps through recommendations from other families in your immediate vicinity.
Finding a nanny privately can be time-consuming, stressful and hard work, which is why many people turn to an agency for help. A good nanny agency can make the process faster and easier, as well as provide peace of mind. An agency can help you find a full-time, part-time, temporary or emergency caregiver for your child. It’s important to carefully choose the agency you work with. Not only will you be investing your time and money in their services but you’ll also be trusting them to find the right nanny for your family.
 
What Good Nanny Agencies in Canada Do
Before sending nannies out on an interview with families good nanny agencies should:
• always interview the nanny in person - not just over the telephone for at least an hour.
• check birth certificate, passport, driving license - original, not a copy
• always ask for at least two references
• ask about qualifications and First Aid - check originals of certificates
• ask about any gaps in a Nanny's CV and make them account for them
• ask for a police check
• find out where the Nanny is living and their current circumstances
• ask what experience the nanny has. How do they care for and stimulate children in their care
 
Choosing a nanny agency in Canada
To determine if an agency's a good one, here's a checklist of questions to ask before you commit yourself
  • How long has the agency been in the business, or (if the agency is new) how much experience in the industry has the agency’s director/operator had?
  • Where does the agency source its nannies?
  • Does the agency meet each nanny candidate in person?
  • How long will it take to find a nanny through the agency? About how many candidates will they present to you?
  • Do its nannies have first aid certificates as standard?
  • What childcare qualifications and/or experience do its nannies have? Do they perform a full background check?
  • What does that include? At what point during the screening / referral process do they perform the various checks
  • Will all the screenings be completed before the nanny begins work?
  • Does it run training courses for its nannies, and provide opportunities for them to increase their skills?
  • How does it go about matching nannies to families? Does it meet you to discuss your requirements?
  • What support does it give the family during the recruitment process?
  • Does it assist with drawing up the employment contract between family and nanny?
  • What ongoing support does it provide families? Does it check back to see if the arrangement is working? Does it offer back-up support if a nanny gets sick or fails to show up?
  • What advice can it give parents about employment law and their responsibilities and risks as an employer?
  • What costs are involved and what do they cover? (For example, registration fee, placement fee, etc).
