NANNIES

We will find the nanny that suits you.

A nanny offers many benefits to the family who hires her. Regency Nannies helps you find that valuable member missing from your team! Simplified by our exclusive turnkey service, affordable especially for large families and totally personalized, Regency Nannies has an impressive database of trusted and experienced nannies. As the nanny is ofter a person living in their own employer's home, we listen, understand and care about each and every family's needs. Full time, part time, day, evening, weekend, residing or not, we can match you with a nanny who perfectly fits your unique family's style.


IMMIGRATION

Immigration process of foreign nannies

Whether you are hiring a nanny from another country or want to help an experienced nanny to immigrate to Canada, we can guide you through the whole immigration process. Finding the ideal nanny can be a complex task, and the immigration process should not be an obstacle to your desire to benefit from this important support that your family needs. Regency Nannies team is composed of immigration lawyers who will guide you through every step: visa, work permit, deadlines, documents, CAQ, permanent residence, as well as all other legal aspects surrounding the immigration of your domestic worker.


COMPANIONS

Need help with elder relatives?

Regency Nannies helps people with loss of autonomy maintain their dignity. The transition to a retirement home is not always the ideal solution and the companion allows older people to stay at home longer, in the comfort of their own home. Does the person have a disability? Our caregiver will help with the household chores.


GENERAL HELP

Maid and cook ready to serve you!

Regency Nannies will find the help you need at home. Cleaning? Cooking? Gardening? Did you know that your nanny can both take care of the children and perform other duties such as cleaning, cooking or mowing the lawn? Do not hesitate to tell us about the related tasks your nanny could do to help you around the house. That is our mission after all!

Old age comes suddenly, like snow. One morning you wake up and realize everything is white.

Procedures

The steps to follow

Yes, we thought of everything.



- 1 -

FIRST CONTACT

First, the family contacts us and completes a form so that we can perfectly understand their needs. Following the receipt of this duly completed request for services, we proceed to the file analysis stage in order to clearly identify the family's style, while taking into account the specific requirements of the employers. Then, the matchmaking process is initiated. We carefully review all the required criterias and compare them with the profiles of the candidates appearing in our databases to ensure that the proposed candidates will indeed meet the identified needs and requirements of the employers.



- 2 -

MATCH AND INTERVIEW

The goal of Regency Nannies is to save you time and energy by limiting the number of interviews, offering you, at all times, only candidates of experience and quality. On average, a successful placement requires the meeting of 2 to 3 handpicked candidates. We therefore propose to each family 2 or 3 nannies whose profile will have been retained for these interviews. We e-mail the profile of the preferred candidates so that the family can make an informed choice and prepare their list of questions to ask the applicant(s). If the family decides to interview one or more candidate(s), we suggest that they do it at home so that the selected aspirant(s) can meet the children, visit the house and become familiar with the neighborhood and the public transport circuits around.



- 3 -

TRIAL PERIOD

The nanny starts working with the family for a short period of time in order to ensure that the match is a complete success. Once the choice of the family has been set, we will guide its members through all the steps required to become a family of legal employers, providing them information on the payment of the candidate's salary, tax obligations (employer number, tax deductions, statements, T4, etc.) and applicable employment laws (minimum wage, statutory holidays, overtime, sick leave, and more).



- 4 -

HIRING

If the trial period is conclusive, the nanny is hired. That's when the warranty period begins. We offer a 3 month guarantee to our employing families. In the event that, during this period, the resource person no longer needs to meet the needs of the family of employers, we are committed to find the family a replacement person at no additional cost.



Cleanliness is the image of the sharpness of the soul.

FAQ

Some answers to your questions

And if you have more, we are here to help.

What is the turnkey service?

Let us know what you are looking for and we take care of the rest! The turnkey service is 100% personalized and includes all the steps leading to hiring the caretaker you dream of: the employee that is perfectly suited to your needs, to the personalities of your children, to your requirements and lifestyle.

Will we have to read several nannies profiles?

No! We will select nannies profiles directly through our database to find the candidates that will best match your search criterias, no matter how many there are. We will then present you the 2 or 3 profiles most likely to satisfy you, so that you can choose the nanny that suits you best.

Why bring in a nanny from another country?

Our applicants from other countries are experienced nannies, caregivers and domestic helpers. They have accumulated years of experience in their home country and are ready to pursue their career here, serving Canadian families. By hiring an employee from another country, you are helping a woman complete her immigration process in Canada.

Must nannies from other countries live with the families who hire them?

No. It is possible to find either a live-in or a live-out employee. It is all a question of determining what is best for the employer and for the nanny that the family wishes to hire.

So is it possible to find a live-in?

Yes. A live-in nanny is a nanny who lives with her employer. Many nannies seek this type of agreement with the family who hires her! The hiring process can be longer, however. Regency Nannies will then make sure to accompany the hiring family through finding an interim solution.

There is always something left from of childhood, always…

ME STÉPHANIE SÉGUIN :: Founder

[Translated from French] A career woman, a lawyer in private practice for seven years, a tax expert and the mother of a young child, the idea of ​​starting my own business came into being at the time of my pregnancy.

A few months after the birth of my daughter, my plan to set up an agency for governesses or "nannies" came to fruition and some time later, I acquired a well-established agency in the Montreal area.

Admittedly, my farewell to private practice meant the arrival of new challenges but also an adventure oriented mainly to the well-being of families and greater availability for my close ones ...
