Just raises concerns that the goal is getting immigration for the sister versus needing a nanny. You are not looking at after tax income. Over a 1/3 of their income would go for childcare for 1 child. I assume this has nothing to do with childcare and is a route to immigration. Childcare is expensive but most do try to find the most affordable option in order to potentially save money or allocate it to housing, transportation, etc. costs. You'll have to se what reply you get just warning you of these red flags.
Yes canuck, thanks. I know that if the employer is a relative, they are focused on helping the Employee to being a PR someday and not on the necessity of having a Nanny. I am fully aware of it, thank you. I still hope that an officer will approve.

Some families do actually need a nanny and hire someone else if the family member is not approved.

The IRCC will look at hiring a relative more closely, but people seem to forget that the CRA will also look upon the relationship with more scrutiny regarding insurable benefits, and EI deductions made for the employee by the employer aka the relative

If your sponsorship/LMIA gets approved I encourage you as well to file a CPT 1 with the CRA. On occasion when an employer is related to the employee you have to see if the work they will be performing is insurable in the eyes of the CRA/ESDC.
It is better to file the CPT 1, and get a ruling, versus any potential trust exams on the payroll account handled by the employer aka relative
In other words, all work is not considered equal
If it is not insurable, then they would not be eligible to claim any benefits under the EI scheme example, EI, Sickness, Maternity Leave

I understand the IRCC point of view Yes, the family can show their NOA as proof that the employer can pay the caregiver. Their income is at $110,000 I think, they have one child only, plus the employee's qualification is acceptable. Well, it is still at the hands of the officers. I heard some got approval and some were unfortunate to get positive result because of being related to each other.
Do you know the gross income assessment at $110k is required for one year of the most recent NOA, or CRA will look into the recent three years of NOA? Thank you.
