Jobs for Filipino Nannies and Caregivers

If you have immigrated from the Phillippines to Canada and are searching for a job as a nanny or a live-in caregiver, you have come to the right place. is the premier connector of Filipino caregivers and employers; here you can browse our Job Board, post your resume and have employers find you and hire you as a nanny in Canada.

If you wish to work as a live-in nanny but are not a Canadian citizen, you will need to comply with Canada’s Live-in Caregiver Program. But don’t worry - most of the responsibilities fall on the employer! In fact, many of the requirements of the program are to ensure that YOU are protected from being exploited, over-worked and mistreated.

For example, under the Live-in Caregiver Program, your employer must prove that he or she is capable of paying you in a timely manner and of providing you with a safe work environment. Your employer must also pay you at least minimum wage (which varies according to province), and provide health insurance and the standard benefits of every other job. These are technical, yet important, aspects of working as a nanny in Canada, and you should not think that because you are from the Phillippines that you are not entitled to all of these rights!

Here is a detailed list of what your employer is responsible to do for you under Canada’s Live-in Caregiver Program:

  • They must have enough income to pay you

  • They must give you an acceptable living space in their home

  • They must apply for a labour market opinion (LMO) from Service Canada and include the employment contract

  • They must provide a written contract that includes benefits such as transportation, medical insurance, workplace safety insurance and other fees. The contract must also include job duties, hours of work, wages, housing arrangements, vacation, sick leave and rules of termination.

Resume Tips
Before posting your resume on, you should make sure that the spelling and grammar are correct, and that you are putting your best foot forward. If you are just starting out in the nanny field and don’t have any formal childcare experience, list any informal experience you have - parents just want to rest assured that you know how to care for and interact with children.

If you have any special talents, such as playing guitar, possessing a Canadian driver’s license or speaking both French and English, make sure to include it in your profile. You never know what specific detail might attract an employer, and that can make the difference between being invited for an interview or not!
