  • Description


    We are a busy dynamic family with two young children ages 9 and 10. Mom works in the local community's Health Centre as the Nurse. Dad runs a busy Bistro in our small community.

    We have a couple of different positions available. First, we are looking for a motivated, self-directed, individual or couple to help us with childcare of our two boys ages 9 and 10 while both parents are at work. The boys enjoy making new friends from around the world each summer and showing them the beauty of their community. Currently we have a return helper coming to care for the boys from July - Sept. So we are in need of someone from Mid to late April to June 2019.

    We have a variety of accommodation options on our property as many of our Bistro staff live on our property as well. We also have a large variety of outdoor equipment that will allow you to take advantage of our pristine wilderness and have your own adventure, like canoes, kayaks, bikes, etc. We will also have opportunity for helpers to join us on some of our family adventures into the mountains and surrounding wilderness.

    We also are looking for folks interested in shorter stays for some help with general property tasks, minor construction and maintenance of our Bistro and home property from April 2019 - Sept 2019. We are offering room and board, additional pay for extra hours, and amazing Yukon experience.

    If Workaways have working Visa's, We are currently accepting resumes from experienced restaurant staff for a variety of paid positions at the Bistro including Chef, line cook, prep staff, barista's, dishwasher and front end staff for the 2019 summer season as well. Email if interested to find out more details.
