I live in a townhouse in a co-op in Ontario, and would like to start an unlicensed home daycare. Although, im not allowed to start a “business” in the co-op. My landlord said i could “babysit”, and basically said i could start the daycare as long as its not a “business”. So my question is, whats the difference between babysitting and a home daycare? If i dont register my daycare as a business am i in the clear? I know i have to declare a self employed income on my taxes, but so do babysitters(technica lly).

Thanks in advance!
