Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Welcome potential future Au Pair,

I live in the beautiful, wild, natural Labrador in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador on the north east coast of Canada. I am currently living in the small community of Forteau in the Labrador Straits, but will be moving to another unknown part of the province in the next 2 to 10 months. I am a police officer with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police therefore we typically relocate every few years. I am hoping to move to Happy Valley - Goose Bay in central Labrador, but my work may take me to either the Deer Lake area or St. John’s area of Newfoundland island, both very beautiful, scenic and accessible.

If you would like to experience the most hospitable regions of Canada in a beautiful untouched environment, we would love for you to be a part of our family while living and learning in Canada. We have lots of snow in Labrador and are big snowmobile enthusiasts so we would love to share the ride.

Job Description

Given I am a police officer, my hours of work can sometimes extend beyond an 8 or 10 hour day or night shift. This is not the norm but the nature of policing is such that it is not unusual. The working hours of the Au Pair would have to mirror mine for the care of my 2 year old, while my 11 year old will be in school during the day, M-F. My work schedule would be rotating days/nights/weekdays/weekends. Depending on where in Newfoundland I work, days off could be 2 to 3 days per week.

We currently have 2 cats and a dog, but the pets will be likely be shared between my home and Dad’s. We expect them to be fed and cared for with occasional walks for the dog and kitty litter cleaning for the cats.

A midday meal is expected to be prepared for our 2 year old, as well as snack time and indoor and outdoor activities. Involvement in local social family outings would be expected and supervision at any organized sports or art events.
