Looking for a Helper for fall 2018! Come experience a Yukon fall, winter or summer! Venez vivre un hiver ou un été du Yukon! Two working professional parents with two children ages 9 & 11 are looking for some help around the house and some help with child care (although this spring/summer we will be doing some work around the garden and garage--cutting fire wood etc). We are looking for an exchange of food and board for approximately 25-30 hours a week (which includes dog walks on the beautiful trails close to the house)--there is flexibility with the days/hours. We live 15 minutes from downtown Whitehorse in a modern house on a 1 hectare property. We have two dogs: 1 Komondor (big) and 1 Havanese (small). Duties could include such things as cleaning, cooking, picking the children up from school/skiing, helping with homework and music lessons, (violin and piano), shoveling snow or a focus on yard / repair / carpentry work in the summer. We are 10 minutes from a downhill ski hill and 15 minutes to cross country ski trails (some of the best in North America). Affordable Yukon College is 20 minutes away. A driver's license is required. A car is occasionally available for personal use. Private bedroom and private bath provided. A 1 month stay (or longer) is preferred but we are open to discussing a shorter stay of 2 to 3 weeks. We welcome new friends from any country. Non-smokers only, please.



Venez vivre un hiver (ou un été) du Yukon! Deux parents professionnels avec deux enfants de 9 et 11 ans sont à la recherche d'un peu d'aide autour de la maison et de l'aide pour s’occuper des enfants. Nous recherchons ce travail en échange de nourriture et de l’hebergement pendant environ 25-30 heures par semaine - avec une certaine flexibilité. Nous vivons à 15 minutes de la ville de Whitehorse dans une maison moderne sur un terrain de 1 hectare. Les tâches comprennent le nettoyage, la cuisine, ramasser des enfants de l'école et le ski,aider aux devoirs et les leçons de musique (violon et piano). Nous sommes à 10 minutes de la colline de ski alpin et 15 minutes des sentiers de ski de fond (entre les meilleurs en Amérique du Nord). L’abordable Collège du Yukon est à 20 minutes. Un permis de conduire est exigé. Un séjour de 1 mois est idéal - mais moins ca va aussi.Si vous parlez FRANÇAIS, c'est bien. (Whitehorse a une communauté francophone dynamique). Pas de fumeurs S.V.P.
