You do not need a Work Visa to visit me, but if you visit other Canadian hosts doing paid or volunteer work, you will probably need a Work Visa. Travellers from some countries will need to get a travel visa.

I ask that you visit as a friend and offer to contribute to what is required for daily living like cooking, cleaning, trip planning, meal planning and firewood gathering. We divide the daily chores as needed.

This is a home stay where we are all equals in this adventure of wilderness living or exploring on roadtrips. We are a group of friends and “Happiness is only real when shared.”


Activities & Shift

I have been hosting for 11 years, so we can work upon creating new offerings. I need help with creating new hosting ideas, adventures, webpages, Introduction Emails and profiles. Skills in writing, photographing and social media are helpful, but just being in the photograph is helpful too. :)


Rules

You must like wilderness living or must be wanting to learn. Get out of your comfort zone and have a real adventure! I am more than happy to teach you how.

I can provide all seasonal clothing and camping equipment. All you need to bring is a passport, toothbrush and enthusiasm, I can provide everything else.

This place runs on the energy and enthusiasm of each guest, and is for those who can make their visit an adventure.
