    Description

    Hello, I'm a retired professional living by myself in a large 4 bedroom home nestled between picturesque mountains and the mighty Fraser River. Hope BC is a great place for all kinds of outdoor activities and leisure. I have a private/separate in-law suite in the house that I am offering in exchange for work inside and outside the residence on my property. I am fluent in French and Spanish originally from Montreal PQ and have worked and travelled all over the world. I will need assistance in several home improvement projects such as yard cleaning, painting, light construction projects and some light mechanical work. Your work/stay will include use of my canoe and fishing gear, well stocked tool shop, use BBQ gear, full private in-law suite with sat tv and wifi. I am a musician, guitarist, drummer and singer, so music jams are on the list if you are musically inclined and into that kind of thing.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I speak 3 languages fluently so I could assist French and Spanish speakers to learn English. I am a musician so we could have music jams if you are musically inclined. Hope BC is a small town surrounded by mountains, lakes and rivers, there are hundreds of places to see if you are into hiking, biking, boating etc. There is a very artistic community here in Hope as well as many First Nations communities within the surrounding region.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Hope is a 30 minute drive to Chilliwack, there is limited public transportation. I could accommodate providing some transport under certain conditions. There is plenty to see and do in the Hope area, mountain trails, historic Kettle Valley trails for hiking and biking, Kakawa Lake is a 15 minute walk from my property, Fraser River is nearby, fishing, canoeing, panning for gold, mountain climbing, visiting the Hell's Gate area, white water rafting on the Fraser or Nahatlach River in nearby Boston Bar, camping of all kinds. Hope is a great place to live and visit.

    There will be strict house rules for social distancing, wearing masks when in close proximity, keeping any shared areas clean and disinfected due to the Corona Virus Pandemic. I will ask any potential Woraway to please respect the protocols established by our Provincial and Federal Health Authorities. Best wishes to all Workaways, stay safe and healthy in these challenging times.
