Not Accepting New Helpers At The Moment. Thanks


Hello Helpers,

We are a retired couple who have moved to Quadra Island and are in the process of creating a serene oasis on our 3 acre property. We would like to invite motivated, engaging, happy helpers to give us a hand with all manner of manual labour.i.e. preparing the land for a veggie garden and improving what is here already.

Being "morning" people, we prefer helpers who greet the day with good humor and positive energy.

We request 25 hr per week in the mornings. Lunch is eaten together, leaving afternoons free for exploring our trails, lakes, beaches, climbing rocks and quaint village. We provide food for breakfast and supper and it's casual so you can eat when you it suits you.
We also have kayaks and bicycles you are welcome to use. Or, if you wish to stay on the property, hang out on the dock, and watch marine life, (seals, otters, porpoise, mink and tons of bird life etc) you are welcome to do so.

We are a couple with a four year old daughter and a two year old son. We have an acre waterfront lot on beautiful Bowen Island. We are looking for a non-smoking, outdoor loving, single female that has some childcare experience and basic English language skills. The work is mainly house cleaning, gardening and childcare. We typically accept someone for two-three week stays but if it is a really great fit we are always open to longer. You will have two days off a week and will be included in all our family activities if you choose to be. I also encourage you to go explore on your own too around the island and into the city on your days off. In the evenings we all come together for dinner and conversation. Come experience one of the Gulf Islands! We are about an hour out of Vancouver.

Thanks to Caroline, Wyatt, Emily, Marine and Janine and Souhela for all their help this year. Now we're looking for next year, for 2-4 helpers for the last week in May to do a seasonal clean up inside and outside.....gardening, yardwork, cleaning, cooking, etc. For June, July, August, September we'd like one long term helper (1 month or more) to help with more gardening in the organic vegetable and Japanese style gardens, some cleaning, some cooking. After 4 hours of help in the morning, you have the rest of the day free to play....bike, hike, climb, explore, relax. Driver's license would be helpful. Paid work opportunities are available on the island. WiFi, bikes, relaxed atmosphere.

Quadra Island is a small piece of paradise; see our previous helpers’ comments. If you are interested in experiencing some laid-back island living, please get in touch and we can discuss more details. We look forward to hearing from you! Thanks!

We are currently looking for 1-2 helpxers to come anytime in October or November 2018! Fall chores include firewood gathering, harvesting what is left of our gardens and bedding them down for the winter, as well as helping Tim with whatever he is up to in regard to construction or lumber organization.

Haida Gwaii in the fall doesn't get as cold as other parts of British Columbia, and we often have a lot of mild, beautiful sunny days throughout fall & winter. November is our storm season, but that is also when our surfing picks up, so if you're looking to hit the waves on your time off, fall is the time to come :)

Would you like to come and help us out?

We now are looking for someone to help out in September and October.

We are located in Sandspit, on Haida Gwaii, a remote archipelago in the northern part of BC, close to Alaska.

We are a small (5 rooms) and comfortable B&B overlooking a scenic bay in our tiny community (250 residents) and only settlement on Moresby island. Since a few years, we operate a small Hostel within the B&B, just one room, with 3 single beds in.

There are daily flights from Vancouver to Sandspit, where the property is located, and also a ferry coming from Prince Rupert a few times a week.

I am a 39 year old male, originally from France and in Canada since over 10 years. I just became a citizen in 2018. This is now going to be my 10th summer on the islands. I have been and am still a helper myself and have traveled in Canada using various websites. I have also traveled for a few years in Australia and New Zealand, on Working Holiday Visas.
