Full time Live in Au Pair

A full time au pair is a young person aged between 18-30 who loves children and wishes to experience a cultural exchange and become part of a Canadian family. The term au pair translates to mean by mutual agreement. Thus, an au pair assists your family with child minding and light household duties in exchange for accommodation, meals and pocket money.  The au pair generally takes on the role of a big sister type figure within the family.
