Au Pair in Canada: visa information

Au Pair Visa to Canada
There is no official Au Pair program in Canada. If young people want to become an Au Pair in Canada though, they can apply for the Working Holiday Visa. This visa can only be used once in a lifetime. 

Working Holiday Visa

If the Au Pair is from these countries, they can become an Au Pair with the Working Holiday Visa:
 
Australia Austria Belgium Chile
Costa Rica Croatia Denmark Estonia
France Germany Greece Hongkong
Ireland Italy Japan Latvia
Lithuania Mexico New Zealand Netherland
Norway Poland Sweden Slovakia
Slovenia Spain South Korea Taiwan
Czech Republic Ukraine United Kingdom  

Citizens of Austria and Switzerland can not apply for this type of visa. 
 
The Au Pair has to meet certain requirements to be eligible for the Working Holiday Visa:
  • be at least 18 years old and not older than 35
  • have basic knowledge of English or French
  • need 2500 CAD$ and a ticket for the flight back to the home country 
  • have a passport which is valid during the whole time that the Au Pair will spend in Canada 
  • be able to take out health insurance for the duration of your stay—you may have to present evidence of this insurance when you enter Canada
The Canadian embassy also offers the tool “Come to Canada”. Here it is possible to check if the Au Pair’s nationality is eligible for a Working Holiday Visa. 

For more regulations, requirements and information, please check with the Canadian embassy
 
The Working Holiday Visa costs 250 CAD$ (170€) and can only be paid by credit card. In addition, there is a fee of about 300 € for a medical exam after your visa application which can not just be done by your doctor. The embassy will give you instructions and a form when you apply.
