Geforderte Mindest-Aufenthaltsdauer: mindestens 1 Woche
We are a working couple with a 14 year old son. We are a fun, active little family, living in the west end of Ottawa. We looking for an extra set of hands with dogs and son, Jack, before and after school. He is very independent, and doesn’t need much minding anymore. However, hosting world travellers teaches Jack that the world is bigger than his backyard. It teaches Jack to be open, inclusive, trusting and kind. This program has been such an amazing experience for our family.
We live in a three bedroom house with lots of space for a single visitor to spend some time with us. ( No couples please ) Ottawa is a wonderful city to visit, lots of tourist things to do (being our nations capital). We would be happy to show you around, or just let you explore on your own.
Let us know if your interested, looking forward to hearing from you!

We have hosted many people from around the world. I am happy to say that many have returned to be our guests time and time again. But not just as a volunteer from Workaway. But as a part of our family. This is why we do what we do. We love helping people achieve their dreams. I know it is expensive to travel and see the world. If we can help someone out, by giving them a place to stay while they explore our city, that is so gratifying. It also teaches our son to be kind, giving, and loving to all people of the world. That is so important to us! This world needs more love.
So..... if you are looking for an extended Canadian family to be a part of during your adventure here, send us a message!

I need a hand with waking Jack up for school, walking the dogs, and meeting Jack after school.
I have my Mom close by, she is a great help to us now. However, she is aging and need a bit of a break. She is very active in our son's life, and will remain.
With our full schedules, you will have quite a bit of time to yourself to explore this great city and enjoy your time here in our nations capital.
I take care of food and housing in exchange for some help with my son, and our dog We do our best to cater to dietary needs, and I love to cook!!
We want to host someone who wants to be a part of a Canadian family while they are here. What does that mean? Well, someone who gets involved in the daily activities of our life. Spending time with me in the kitchen, or preparing a meal for us for when we return from a long day at school and work. Someone who helps us with what we are doing, whether it be gardening, playing cards, watching a movie, or cleaning the house. Team work, makes everything easier!!! And a team mate is what we are looking for.
If your speak a different language, we would love to learn from your and learn all about were you are from too!!
How ever we can make your visit comfortable and fulfilling, we will try our best to accommodate.

It's a lovely neighborhood.
