Hey Diamond Nannies,
Once you succeed in securing a wonderful employer here in Canada, things tend to snowball very quickly. One of the most crucial points is when you need to complete a medical examination by a doctor for the embassy. We know it can very difficult to get away to complete the examination, especially if your Hong Kong employers are unaware of your plans for Canada. What makes it extra tough is the fact that you work 6 days a week, and some doctors aren’t open on Sundays!

A TREMENDOUS THANK YOU to our Facebook friend, “Tana Tano” for your incredible work and investigative skills.
Please also visit the CIC website for more options. When you receive your request from the embassy to complete your medical examination, YOU MUST COMPLETE IT WITHIN 48 HOURS.
THIS IS CRUCIAL.
MEDICAL EXAMINATIONS MUST BE COMPLETED WITHIN 48 HOURS!
Hey Diamond Nannies,
It is essential that once you receive your request from the embassy to complete your medical examination and police clearance, that you complete them within 48 hours!
Do not delay the process even longer! Your employers in Canada are excited to have you, and we want to get you here as quickly as possible.
We know it can be very difficult to get away from work, especially if your employers are unaware of your plans to come to Canada. But remember: the sooner you complete the embassy requests, the sooner you can come to Canada! Beg an hour or two away from work so that you can complete the medical and the police clearance! Tell your employers you have an appointment, which is 100% true. We know it can be hard to get away from work, but it is imperative that you complete everything within 48 hours.
There are so many reasons as to why Diamond Personnel is continually the best caregiver agency in Canada. Really — there are many reasons as to why Diamond Personnel continues to rise to the top of Canadian caregiver agencies.
It’s not just the awards,it’s not just the heartwarming and honest testimonials we receive (click here to read some, and here for even more!), it’s not the Hong Kong orientations and interviews we conduct ourselves (and we’re the ONLY agency that does that), and it’s not just the professional, ethical and legal service the Diamond Personnel offers… .

Good morning Diamond Nannies,
There has been a great deal of speculation and rumors flying around that if a caregiver’s permit has “Babysitter, nanny or parents’ helper” on it, than that caregiver will not qualify for permanent residency in Canada.
THAT IS FALSE!
As long as your Labour Market Opinion (LMO) has the NOC Code 6474 then you are fine! When the time comes for you to apply for your permanent residency, everything should go smoothly.
Do not be confused or misled by the rumors! Diamond Personnel takes care of its caregivers, and we will update you if there are any changes to the program.
We know that for many of our applicants and hopefuls, it can get confusing trying to understand all the requirements for Diamond Personnel. For a quick overview, please take a look at our FAQs page, or even our official website. What causes some confusion is the Canadian Caregiver Training Institute education we require from our applicants.
What sets Diamond Personnel apart from any other agency is the high standard we hold our nannies to: we are the best caregiver agency in Canada, and we offer only the brightest talent to our clients. In order to ensure that, we turned to the Canadian Caregiver Training Institute in Hong Kong. CCTI is a training school that is independent from Diamond Personnel — we do not benefit financially from the school or its students. What we benefit from is working with highly trained, professional caregivers.
The reason why we require our applicants to attend CCTI is because it trains its students for Canadian-standards for First Aid, CPR and safety. There are other components included in the CCTI training, and in the end, any graduate who walks away from CCTI is infinitely more knowledgeable and better trained caregiver.
Let’s put this into perspective:
Any high school graduate can apply for university. However, to set themselves apart from the pack and to be more appealing to their ideal university, it is better for that student to have extracurriculars, volunteer experience and extra qualifications or education.
That is the purpose of the CCTI training: to set our caregivers apart from the rest. That is why our clients come to Diamond — so they can meet the best and the brightest caregivers!
CCTI training is not mandatory by the Canadian government, but it is mandatory for Diamond Personnel.
All fees go directly to CCTI; Diamond Personnel does not benefit from them, nor do we dictate how much the fee is.
Attending CCTI does not guarantee you a position through Diamond Personnel. While we have many jobs here in Canada, any applicant can benefit from the CCTI training and apply with other agencies.
As an applicant, you are responsible for collecting, submitting and keeping track of the validity of all your documents. WE RECOMMEND YOU MAKE PHOTOCOPIES OF ALL IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS.
If you have any questions or concerns about CCTI, please contact them directly. You can reach them at 852-6198-6577.
