  • Arbeit


    We are looking for a maximum of 4 hours of work/day in exchange for food and accomodation in Whitehorse (within city limits). Single person preferred, couple negociable.

    - Garden maintenance (every other day) :
    We have a small garden that needs to be looked after.

    - Petsitting :
    Everyday : feeding and walking the dog, cleaning the kitty litterbox, maintaining the chicken coop (pick-up droppings with a shovel), changing the water and picking up fresh eggs.
    Once about every 4-5 days : feeding the cat and the chickens.
    Our dog is a rescue dog who is very affectionate with humans, but doesn't like other dogs. He can't be left running off leash and needs a lot of exercise. If you aren't too comfortable around dogs, this won't be a good fit. We need someone who loves animals and has experience with reactive dogs. Sorry, for this reason we can't accomodate families or other pets.

    - Painting :
    Painting the deck and the fence (outside painting). If it's raining, we may have some painting to do inside.

    - House cleaning :
    We are expecting you to do basic house cleaning (cleaning after yourself) during your stay (swipe the floor, clean your dishes, clean the bathroom, water the plants, etc.)

    - Cooking :
    The first few days we will eat dinner together, then we will provide you with some food so you can cook your meals yourself. If you have any food preferences, please let us know. Please note that our house doesn't have a microwave but you can use the stove and oven.

    - Other :
    If you have any special interest or talent, please let us know. Maybe you're a chef, a carpenter or a wood worker? We are open to discussing other projects.

    The work shouldn't take more than 4 hours/day. Most of the work is done outside, so you will need proper clothing. For certains tasks, the schedule can be flexible; You can work either in the morning or in the afternoon. However, the dog needs to be fed at a certain time everyday and the coop door needs to be opened every morning and closed every evening, therefore we need someone who can stay for the whole duration (min. 2 weeks - or more to be discussed together). You don't have to stay home all day, but the nature of the work requires you to not leave for more than a day, for example to go camping. You will have 2 days off per week, during which all you will have to do is check on the chickens and feed the dog (it takes about 10 min. total). With the midnight sun, you will have plenty of time to enjoy the rest of your day after you're done your work: go on day hikes, picnics near a Canyon, trail running, mountain biking, etc.

    We are looking for someone :
    - honest
    - reliable
    - active
    - with a good sense of initiative, self-reliance and good judgement. If a problem arises, you will take action to solve it.

  • Unterkunft


    We have a bedroom in our house for you. There is a desk and a queen size bed. The bathroom is shared.

    The food will be provided but you will have to cook yourself - this way we can better accomodate your food preferences. We will be away for part of your stay so you have to be self-reliant.

    We live within walking distance to downtown and close to a bus stop. However, if you want to go hiking outside of Whitehorse, you will need your own car. There are walking/mountain biking trails close to our house (Mount MacIntyre), a disc golf course, grocery stores, a gym with a pool (Canada Games Centre), a baseball field, etc.

    Sorry, we can't accomodate any more pets and we prefer non smokers. We are looking for a single person; couples negociable.
