Weekly COVID-19 Update

As you know from our email last week, we decided to temporarily shut down our On Call Babysitting department. We felt it was the right thing to do at this time to protect the health and safety of our nannies and families. We know for many of you this means a loss of income that you depended on for rent and food. We’re doing our best to stay up to date with any funding coming from the government and will pass on any information you may find helpful each Monday.

Collecting EI: The Government of Canada announced that they will be extending EI benefits to those who are self-employed. That means that as an On Call nanny (independent contractor) with Nannies on Call you will be entitled to EI. Check out the government website for more information, under the  “Benefits for the self employed” section. https://www.canada.ca/en/services/benefits/ei.html. You may need to have your yellow nanny receipts handy as proof of income.

New Office Hours:
Monday to Friday, 9AM – 5PM PST in Calgary and Vancouver
Monday to Friday, 9AM – 5PM EST in Toronto
Closed on Saturdays and Sundays

Please note we now have a limited number of staff members currently working and we’ll do our best to get back to you as soon as possible.

Our Contact Telephone Numbers:
604-734-1776, 403-351-0180, 647-776-0911
