I write this on mid May 2020. I just want to say that I am still accepting volunteers who have been careful during the virus outbreak. I have had two from England and four from Germany (all of whom wintered in Canada.). When they arrive, we isolated for 2 weeks. But this is an easy place to self-isolate as we have the great outdoors to spread around in.
I will be taking the next batch of volunteers on 29 May. I will meet them in Williams Lake, BC, my nearest big town and Volunteers must have their own vehicle as due to current situation it is not possible to share a car with strangers for 3 and half hours - also, public transport is not running.
Work is firewood, gardening and construction.
Good luck to all you travellers out there.
I am 72 I was born in England, have lived in the Canadian wilderness for 40 years. I have built cabins alone. I am also an artist and a writer, and have had many books about my wilderness life published. I have hosted many volunteers over twenty-five years.

45 years ago I worked my way round the world before Workaway was invented. I empathize with like-minded travellers and we can learn from each other.
Help is gardening, firewood, and carpentry. This is a remote area close to nature, and there are a lot of spectacular places to see. Season most years is late March to October or November. Both these times depend on how much snow is on the ground.
In a cabin or yurt usually, but if the accommodation is crowded, a tent is used for overflow.
It is not always possible to give volunteers half a days' work so I tell everyone to work half the time: in other words, work one day and take a day off; or work 4 days and take 4 days off. This is ideal for people who like to explore. Lots of hiking opportunities in spectacular mountains, and some wildlife viewing; notably bears in spring and fall.
