  • Description


    Hello Workawayers! We are a French-Canadian family living in a rural area of Ottawa. (We also all speak English) We have 4 children, their ages range from 10 to 18. We live in a large house that is an easy 20 minutes from Ottawa by car.

    We love art, video games, legos, board games, science experiments, music, karate, swimming and gardenning.

    Bonjour! Nous sommes une famille franco-Ontarienne vivant dans la région d'Ottawa. Comme nous essayons de garder le français comme langue dominante de la maison, nous sommes particulièrement intéressés à recevoir des Workawayers qui peuvent parler en francais. Si le français est votre langue maternelle ou s'il ne l'est pas et que vous cherchez à le pratiquer pendant votre séjour au Canada, il nous ferait plaisir de vous recevoir. Le reste de ce profil sera en anglais pour permettre une plus grande accessibilité.
