  • Description

    Description

    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

    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.
