Taxpayers will only have to foot the bill for one nanny at 24 Sussex Drive after Canada Day.
Caregiver Marilou Trayvilla no longer works for the Trudeau family and will be off the public payroll on July 1, according to an order-in-council.
Trayvilla was one of two nannies hired as special assistants under the Official Residences Act to watch the three Trudeau children and provide other duties around the prime minister’s official residence.
The duo were each paid between $15-$20 an hour during the day and $11-$13 at night, a fee nanny associations previously said reflects the average rate.
The prime minister came under fire for the hires, considering how he criticized the previous Conservative government for a universal child care benefit that went to wealthy families who didn’t need help paying for child care, his own family included.
Trudeau’s office insisted the two nannies didn’t increase the budget for the prime minister’s residence, and supporters pointed to a similar arrangement when Brian Mulroney was prime minister with a young brood.
