    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You would be able to see life in a "typical" Canadian family! Practice your English, and tag along adventures that we go on. For example, in the summer we have been camping at BonEcho National Park, visited the Toronto Zoo, the Royal Ontario Museum, berry or apple picking. In the colder months we like to go to the Aquarium, indoor swimming, family vacations somewhere warmer or skiing.

    We have a family cottage that we like to spend days at during the summer close to a lake, swimming or going on boat rides to get icecream!

    *UPDATE SEPTEMBER 2020*
    Currently we cannot take workawayers, my grandmother who is originally from Romania, has been here since COVID started, and she is not returning for the next few months back to Romania. As such she is living in the space we have for workawayers. We miss hosting people, and I will update this once we can host again!

    Both hubby and I work shift, so we'd love some help around the house or occasional babysitting our little girl is four. She currently attends public school, and takes the bus at 7:30 am, returns at 3:30 pm. We may need you to drop off or pick her up from the bus stop, which is a 10 min walk away. Help around the house could be cutting the grass, organizing a pantry, vacuuming, emptying the dishwasher. Really, anything that you'd be doing at your own place with your own family.
