    Hello, my name is Jeanne and I live in Whitby, Ontario, Canada with my husband Allan. We are located in Durham Region, which is just east of Toronto. I am looking for help with general work around the house (inside and/or outside). I am currently staying at home and my husband works in a hybrid model.

    The house is a bit of a fixer upper we never remodeled. We decided to stop waiting for the big reno and make the best with what we have. So we have been organizing, painting, fixing and purging but there is still a lot more to do. It would be great to have help to tackle the projects I do not have the energy to do on my own and to do so while sharing and learning about our respective cultural backgrounds.

    My native language is French and I also speak English while my husband only speaks English. We recently adopted 2 cats to keep us company.

    We are located at 55km away from the core of Downtown Toronto with easy access via GO trains and public transit. Our city is 129,000 people from multiple backgrounds. Our location allows to experience Canada in the urban, suburban and rural settings as we are located just in the middle of it all. Allan speaks English and Jeanne speaks French (native) and English. Most of the interaction will be with Jeanne.

    The Greater Toronto Area has a lot to offer and so does Durham Region. We live in a quiet neighborhood full of trees where people are friendly and wave when you walk by. There are 3 separate outdoor seating areas at the house which are perfect to sit and relax in the spring, summer and fall.
