Thanks to all who visited Michelle and Erin at the Vancouver Baby and Family Fair on November 8th and 9th. It was great to meet you all and discuss everything Au Pair! Please keep your questions coming via email or social media. We will answer all your questions as best we can.

We offer you tips and suggestions for before during and after your family has hosted an Au Pair. We have years of experience with Au Pairs and have discovered ourselves what works and what doesn't. We have experienced the growing pains and want to share our advice with you. By following our tips and suggestions we may save you some confusion along the way.

We will provide you with tried and tested sample Au Pair contracts as well as samples of paystubs. We will show you the Welcome Letter we send to each of our new Au Pairs and give you an example of the Au Pair Handbook we prepare for our Au Pair's arrival. We have numerous examples of family references and "How-to" guides for when you are dealing with Revenue Canada. You won't regret a membership with Canadian Au Pair Solutions.

We provide answers to our clients most frequently asked questions on hiring an Au Pair. We will address everything from tax questions to concerns about Visas and rates of pay. There is no question we can't tackle! We also provide answers to those questions you have not yet thought of. Hosting an Au Pair is not difficult but there are definitely processes and tasks that need to be considered and acted on (creating a relationship with Revenue Canada being one of the top tasks).

We will provide you with links to websites that we use and recommend for finding the perfect Au Pair fit for your family. We've tried many websites over the years but there are definitely ones that we prefer. Don't waste your money on multiple search sites and creating numerous profiles. We'll give you our advice!
