    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Because we live on the farm and if the Work Away has a vehicle they can drive to interesting places in Alberta,
    hoping they will fit right in with our family because we live close to the mountains they can go skiing or go to Banff, we live in a beautiful province so there are lots to see and do. I am a widow and I would like an extra hand to help me do the chores, also I drive school bus so an early riser.
