As the second largest country in the world, Canada has lots to offer!

Maple syrups, moose and majestic Niagara Fall, icy winter with lots of skiing opportunities, and turquoise lakes to hike to!

What are your duties?

you have a duty of 30 to 40 hours per week (depending on the host’s requirements)
help the host family with childcare related work (for e.g.: drop off or pick up children from school/day care, prepare lunch boxes and snacks for children, entertain or plan activities for the children)
help out with some household chores (grocery shopping, vacuuming, loading/unloading dishwashing, laundry etc.)
babysitting in the evening

Who are we looking for?

the host family will pay pocket money of a minimum of CAD$ 15 to $ 16.75 per hour depending on which county you are placed in

I am interested!
