    We live on Vancouver Island and would love to show you all of our beautiful outdoor spaces. It gets rainy here in the winter, but if you stay until Summer there will be so much to see and do! The beaches, waterfalls, mountains are all so beautiful! We can still do rainy beach walks in the winter, or you can take a bus up the mountain to ski. If English is your second language, it would be a great place to practice and improve upon this. If you are wanting to see and experience Canada, Vancouver Island is an amazing place to start!

  • Help


    Looking for a friendly, energetic, caring individual to join our family. We have 3 little kids and I find it hard to give them each the attention and time they need, so having an extra hand on deck to divide the care would be amazing, or take the kids in the yard while I make supper. Looking for someone in more of a big sister role. Housework would just be taking turns with the dishes, and keeping your own room clean. Maybe some sweeping or quick easy tasks occasionally to help keep our shared space tidy. Must be comfortable with a large cuddly dog! Must be willing to follow all Covid guidelines and precautions.
