Nunavut is the land of Inuit and the land is covered with beautiful tundra. Iqaluit has large Inuit population who practices traditional activities such as hunting, fishing, sewing, throat signing, etc. You will be exposed to this unique way of life and culture through meeting with Inuit during various traditional activities such as igloo building, ice fishing, berry picking. You can also learn Inuktuk, the Inuit language, at the Piruvik Center.
I need someone to help with cleaning the house, folding laudry, cooking meals, running errands and from times to time babysitting my kids. We have an old cat.
You will have your own room with a double bed (new mattress). The house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The house is warm and welcoming, clean and well maintained. I cook vegetarian meals and fish. You are invited to eat with us. We don't mind if you eat animal based food in our home.
*Nunavut territory is now closed to travellers due to the Covid-19 pandemy. I will have to ask special permission for you to be able to come in Iqaluit. You will need to quarantine for 2 weeks in a designated hotel before to fly to the territory.
Normally, there many outdoor and indoor activities that are offered in Iqaluit such as: library, museum, Legislative Assemby, pool, gym, movie theatre, pubs/clubs, restaurants, cross country club, skidoo, ice fishing, dog sledding, hiking. There are also lots of friends gathering. Visit the city of Iqaluit website for more information.
