Is there an Au Pair Program in Canada? | How to Apply for Au Pair Working Visa to Canada?

An au pair is a young domestic assistant from a foreign country working for, and living as part of, a host family. They take on a share of the family's responsibility for childcare as well as some housework in exchange for a monetary allowance for personal use or to support their studies.
With the recently announced new pathways to permanent residence for caregivers, expect many scammers to capitalize on this. Do not be a victim.
Is there an Au Pair Program in Canada | How to Apply for Au Pair Working Visa to Canada?
There is no official Au Pair Program in Canada. The closest program would be the Working Holiday Program (International Experience Canada). This is applicable if your country of citizenship have an agreement with Canada that allows you to apply for an IEC work permit

There is currently no agreement between Canada and the Philippines for the Working Holiday Program. If your country of citizenship does not have an agreement with Canada, you may still apply for working holiday visa by using a recognized organization

Planning to visit Canada to work as Au Pair? 
It will not work.You are are not allowed to work without a work permit. But you may work as International Student (maximum of 20 hrs/week) if your program is at least 6 months long and you are a full-time student. You may study in Canada even without a study permit if your course or program is less than 6 months. Now, if you can find an employer willing to sponsor your studies and in exchange you must work for them for a maximum of 20 hours/week, then you are lucky.
