    Our family speaks English and French we would love to have someone that speaks french and is working on their English skills. Calgary is a diverse friendly city with many cultures being the fifth largest city in Canada. The city is found on the bow river and has mountains, foothills, grassland, parkland, forest, and rockland. It is warm in the summer and there is allot of snow in the winter, which we like to take advantage of and use our hill down the road for tobogganing.

If able to drive there may be a possibility to do a couple drop offs or pick ups for the kids. 4 month minimum stay would be ideal. Occasional babysitting.

    What else ...

    There is a bus stop close to our home that can bring you throughout the city or to the lrt (train system) which can take you many places across calgary or you you could walk to the lrt station which is about 1.3 miles away(shorter if you cut through the parks). Calgary is home to the NHL team the Calgary Flames. The iconic Calgary Tower can be found downtown. Winsport offers skiing in the city of Calgary and during the warmer weather downhill biking. Inja Nation is fun to explore. The Calgary Zoo has some beautiful animals and some fun things to explore can be found at Heritage Park or Telus Spark. Calaway park offers some amusement park fun. Our community offers lake access to a man made lake that during the summer months provides swimming and fishing and in the winter it is turned into an ice surface for skating and hockey as well as ice fishing. We do not allow smoking and our family does not use any fowl language in our home. We like to keep a clean house. We remove our shoes at the door and are a fun family that like to joke and play around.
