  • Description


    We are a young family, we have a art loving 6 year old girl and a happy 4 year old boy. Ezra Moss and Amira-May. We live in modest home in Skidegate,BC. This is on the beautiful north west point of British Columbia. Haida Gwaii is known popularly as the “edge of the world” and is 100 mile offshore at its southern point. The beaches here are endless and on a sunny day a hike up Sleeping Beauty gives you a wild view of both the east coast all the way to rose spit and over the rugged mountain range to the west coast. My husband and I work for a tree planting company every spring and then he does logging work the rest of the year.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are located in Skidegate, a village of the mighty Haida nation where everyone is encouraged to learn about, participate in and help preserve the language and rich culture. It's a short walk to carving sheds, a language centre, and a longer walk( 3 km) to a world renowned museum.

  • Help


    We are looking for someone to help with being home for the kids as we work 11 hrs, more than the daycare and school hours . Our shift is kind of odd, 3 on/1 off, but super prone to change.

  • Languages spoken

    English: Fluent

  • Accommodation


    We are in a spacious( but not fancy) three bedroom home with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 living rooms. We take up the upstairs but the downstairs ( minus 1 bedroom) would be all yours; your own bedroom bathroom and living room.
