My daughter hired a nanny from the Philippines when her second child was born. There is a website (or several) where Philippino nannies can be hired. In Canada, they are given a one-year contract to be here to work for you, then if you want to renew the contract at the end of the year you just have to go to Immigration with the nanny and fill out the forms. She was an amazing person - SO good with the kids. She didn't spend her days on a cell phone or watching TV - she was very attentive to the kids and she introduced them to new foods and stories. They loved her! Those women are very hard workers, they don't go out at night and drink, they're very good with kids because most of them come from large families where they've had a lot of experience caring for younger siblings.
