  • Description

    Description

    We are almost empty nesters in a suburban neighbourhood on the east end of Toronto. Access to anywhere by car or public transit is quite simple. My husband and I are quite involved in several social betterment groups and spend sometime each week on these. My husband runs his own business and I create videos/film and sing. We are a strictly non smoking and have a zero tolerance for drug use. Anyone considering smoking dope even outside the home and staying here should not contact us.
    We would love to find someone skilled in simple Reno type fixes and/or someone to do general household cleaning and cooking.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have a largish lot, about 1/2 and acre, 1/2 hour east of downtown Toronto and accessible to local activities, bike paths, the beach and shopping malls. We are in a very multicultural neighbourhood. One can find about any nationality close by. Since my husband and I have both been teachers we would be patient and helpful to anyone wanting to improve their English. Workawayers would be welcome to accompany me when I go riding if they have some interest or skill in this area. I love to go riding.

    Our situation would suit an industrious, outgoing people person or couple who enjoy yard work and some simple indoor cleaning tasks. An opportunity to improve our French and my computer skills would also be welcome contributions. We would also need the individual or couple to demonstrate industriousness and honesty, working competently and not glued to a game/phone screen 24/7... obviously able to engage in the activities of life and people

    Accommodation

    Private basement bedroom with a private washroom. Double bed. Meals would be combination of family sit downs and fending for yourself, depending on our schedule. If anyone is particulary interested in food that could be a point of cultural exchange.
