Dick Van Dyke (who is 92 years old) dances on a desk in the new Mary Poppins Returns, looking exactly like Mr Dawes in the original Mary Poppins. Not everyone needs a Caregiver at 92.
Ottawa is cutting the LMIA fee for many!
The new regulations apply to those who earn less than $150,000 a year and want to hire someone from abroad to look after their children. Those seeking to hire a caregiver for people with a physical or mental illness will also be exempt from the fee
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,
How do you feel about the introduced legislation to increase Ontario’s general minimum wage from $11.40 per hour to:
$11.60 per hour on October 1, 2017 (already announced in March 2017)
$14 per hour on January 1, 2018
$15 per hour on January 1, 2019
This sounds like amazing news for employees that are currently earning minimum wage!
However, will we start to see more self checkout counters in stores and supermarkets? Will employers start cutting employee hours? Will products start to become more expensive to cover the increase in salaries?
