The Cost of Hiring an Overseas Nanny

Most people have never considered hiring a live-in nanny/caregiver because they believed it would be too expensive for their family to afford. However, the truth surprises most families who contact OCR.

A  Nanny/Caregiver is actually far more cost effective with increased flexibility, especially if the family has multiple children in daycare, a family member with special needs, or an elderly loved one in a nursing home.

The detailed payroll chart below was designed to give you a better understanding of the monthly cost of having a full time nanny. Please contact the Canada Revenue office in your area for the prevailing rate.
