About Us

Trafalgar Personnel Limited has been successfully meeting the child and home care needs of Canadian families since 1979. Founded by Marna Martin, the company has expanded over the years and now offers a variety of services including full-time Live-In and Live-out nannies, au pairs and caregivers on a full-time, part-time, temporary and occasional basis providing child, elder and special needs care as well as full and part time Housekeepers.

Our office is located in downtown Oakville in the Miller Mews at 323 Church St., Unit 13, Oakville, Ontario L6J 1P2. Our door is off the inside courtyard, where the pub patio is, at the corner of church and Reynolds. Parking is available on the street, in the town parking garage on the south west corner and in the outdoor town parking lot on the north side of the Miller Mews off Reynolds Street.

We remain in touch with both employer and employee throughout the entire employment period and are happy to answer any questions, or assist in any problem solving as necessary. We understand the big change overseas applicants go through when coming to Canada. Thus we provide a few social functions such as camp weekends: Camp CanAqua in Halliburton, Ontario, pub/pizza nights, sightseeing outings, dinners etc., to help the caregivers adjust and make friends.  Also, the caregiver “welcome package” includes a list of other nannies, au pairs and caregivers who have been placed through Trafalgar Personnel and live in your area.

Our employees and families are interviewed and screened in order to ensure that a match is compatible. We guarantee that all offers of employment are discussed thoroughly with each employer and are reviewed to ensure they meet provincial employment standards legislation.

We expect both employers and their caregivers to treat each other fairly and with respect, and to maintain open communication lines so that they can work together in finding solutions to any problems that may arise. We are here to provide guidance and support, whenever needed, throughout the entire placement.
