Au Pairs on our website are already approved for their Canadian work permit and can, in theory, arrive in Canada at any point; although, many Au Pairs have a date in mind for when they want to arrive in Canada. You can find this information on the Au Pair’s mini-profile.
Please note you should give 4-5 weeks between being matched with an Au Pair and their arrival. This will allow your Au Pair to get their affairs in order before departing to Canada for a significant period of time. As well, it will give your family time to prepare for your Au Pair’s arrival; explaining to your children about the new member that’ll be arriving to your family, getting their bedroom all set up, arranging insurance policies, etc.
As many Au Pairs want to arrive in Canada during summer months, this is the best time to hire an Au Pair.
