    maybe she does canadian ones then, but not ones from PH...

    actually, although we enjoyed having her around, i'm surprised how little we really miss her. we are spending a lot more time with our kids and getting them involved in the running of hte house (they LOVE to do laundry!) and helping out with the cooking. we may have to suck it up and get another helper in a few months as i think i'm going to be opening another branch of my playgroup and i just won't have time to do it all...either get another helper or put the two kids into full-day school for a few months.

    that's right, she has told me they have counterpart agencies in Canada but none in the Philippines, so they cannot help you process a DH contract for someone who is in the Philippines

    Thanks for your comments.

    Cara - do you remember what the agency was called? I've found a couple on the Internet but not sure if they are reliable/trustworthy...

    If helpers want to relocate to Canada, do they have to go through an agency? Can it be done without going through one? The reason I'm asking is I'm actually in Toronto and I'm going back to work very soon. If the price tag of getting a helper is comparable to putting my son in daycare, it might be something I may consider.

    i believe that the monthly cost of hiring a helper is comparable to daycare, BUT as the employer, there are a lot of hoops you have to jump through first. it takes about 3-6 months from start to finish, so if you are going to work again soon, you better get a move on it. and, yes, i believe you have to go through an agency.
