Testimonials

  • I will not be extending my CanadianSitter account, but, rest assured, it is not because I am a dissatisfied customer. I was on your site for a few weeks and I accomplished my goal...found a fabulous part-time sitter. I think the service you offer is a brilliant alternative to extortionate nanny agencies... Vivian, Victoria, BC
  • We had some doubts when we joined. We had never used an on line service before. But now I am happy to say that we have a great babysitter that has a nursing background and a back up babysitter that is her friend. Due to our son’s special needs we have not been able to leave him with anyone (not even family)... Shelley, Vancouver, BC
  • The subscription worked beautifully – we found someone within a week! Thank you again, we will be using it again if the need arises. Much better than the hiring service we used before, excellent service.  Laura, Calgary, AB
  • The nanny that we found had just lost her job because the family had moved to New York State. We will definitely recommend your service to other parents Joelle, Calgary, AB
  • Dear Canadian Nanny, I found your site less than two weeks ago and within hours I had several parents contact me with positions I am considering for employment. Your site is very user friendly and helpful in allowing parents to view a personalized profile of nannies, and allowing nannies to view parent profiles to determine a suitable match... Vicki, Calgary, AB
