Ask help from your relatives or friends in Canada to find you an employer.

The Temporary Foreign Worker Program or the TFWP allows families in Canada to hire foreign caregivers from overseas to address the shortage of workers providing care. Therefore, you can take advantage of this program by finding an employer who will need your services. Even if you are outside the country, you can seek help from relatives or friends who are already in Canada and who can talk directly to employers requiring nanny services. They can give your resume to the employers and arrange an interview with you online.  They’ll be the one to coordinate everything between you and your potential employer.

Search for jobs on Craigslist, Indeed, and other job boards.

Another way on how to become a nanny in Canada is to look for job advertisements online. Employers in Canada who prefer foreign caregivers are willing to support LMIA application and even permanent residency application of the child care providers. Grab this opportunity as this can be your chance to work and immigrate to Canada.
