We have hosted Workaway volunteers in our home over 25 times and we have really enjoyed it. Our family is happy to welcome people in our home and show them a beautiful side of Canada.
We are a bridge between Toronto and the wilderness of northern Ontario. We are an active family and we will encourage you to bicycle, camp, canoe and go on hikes while you stay with us.
We have two beautiful children and we're generally really busy from February until June and need extra help. We have a guest room plus bathroom and we need some help with the general running of our home. Mostly the help would involve taking care of our two amazing children (ages 8 and 11) and simple house cleaning. We love to welcome people to the community and Peterborough is a really fun place to be during the summer. We live close to the lake and will find you a canoe and bicycle to use! We're part of a fun community and we're pretty keen to see those that we host have a great time seeing the sites of our community.

Help around the house
You could learn English, teach our kids (and us) another language, learn about the non-profit work we do here in Peterborough, ride a bicycle, so many options!
We love Peterborough and it is a fun community. We would love to help you find connection to this beautiful community. Our kids are beautiful and they are a lot of fun to be with.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We need help with childcare and school drop offs and pick ups. We would love some help around our house with meal preparation and cleaning. We can connect you with other volunteer opportunities that interest you. We are often able to show you an experience of Ontario that you would never be able to experience as a tourist.
This host offers a language exchange
We are very interested in hosting Spanish speakers, as we have recently traveled to Ecuador, but we are certainly happy to learn other languages as well. Our children like to learn a handful of words each time a new Workaway volunteer comes to our home.
Guest room and bathroom within our home. Share the rest of the house with us. We can find you a bicycle and we are located close to downtown. You can also use our canoe as we are located close to a lake and river.
