Hi, What is the going rate is for a part time Nanny or Housekeeper in Toronto? I used to pay $12 an hour but I was told by a friend that I am way off base.
Most recently, the cost of hiring a Nanny, Housekeeper or Elder Care in Toronto seems to be on the rise. While $12.00 an hour was acceptable a few years ago, it is no longer the going rate in the Toronto area. I would say that the minimum you can expect to pay hourly is $15 an hour. While the rate will vary, nannies and housekeepers in Toronto will typically charge anywhere between $15 to $20 an hour.
All the best,
