New Law for Licensing Temporary Help Agencies and Recruiters in Ontario


Important Announcement

As of July 1st, a significant change has been implemented under the Employment Standards Act in Ontario. This new law mandates that all temporary help agencies and recruiters obtain a license to operate legally within the province.

We are pleased to announce that Nannies on Call and The Nanny Solution are among the few nanny agencies currently legally authorized to operate under this new regulation. 

This means that we meet the stringent standards set by the Ontario government and provide our clients with trusted and reliable services.

Key Points of the New Law:

  1. Mandatory Licensing: All temporary help agencies and recruiters must be licensed to operate in Ontario.
  2. Client Responsibility: Clients who engage with agencies that do not possess a valid licence will be subject to fines. Verifying the licensing status of any agency you plan to work with is crucial.

To ensure you are working with a licensed agency, you can verify their status here.

Enforcement and Compliance:

Violations of the licensing provisions in the Ontario Employment Standards Act may result in enforcement action, which can include:

  • Ordering compliance
  • Issuing monetary penalties
  • Prosecution

By choosing licensed agencies like Nannies on Call and The Nanny Solution, you are complying with the new legal requirements and ensuring that you receive the highest quality of service and professionalism.
