About Sitter Quebec:, is the story of four young women, Carola, Emily, Aileen and Paula, who had a common dream: Own a business that would better their community. Having strong family values and being sensitive to the lack of care resources offered to Quebec families, they merged their ideas and decided to create an online service that would connect families with local care providers making it easy for struggling parents to juggle their professional and personal obligations. After 18 months of hard work, sacrifice and dedication, we are proud to say that is now a reality and available online! Growing daily, there are over three hundred caregivers currently registered reaching out to families across the province of Quebec.
