Not sure if this is the right place, it seemed reasonable.

Fellow maple syrup fans,
I'm biking across Canada, and with winter knocking I'd love to find a place where I can make myself usefull. I have an interview for B visa (U.S at December 27tg in Calgary.
I am currently in Sault ste Marrie and biking west.

Im a strong male, worked in farms before, wood chopping and gardening. I also trimmed weed (Cannabis) and would love to work in something like that again.
I did dish-washing in a restaurant in Quebec. Really every kind of labour work.

I'm a red cross certified lifeguard and can do indoor pools.

I don't have a work permit, so if you know places that might look an extra pair of hands for a few months, please share.

+How rude it is to just ask people for work+accommodation AND money?
Cause just doing working for accommodation isn't what I'm looking for, I've done that, and it feels like a total waste of time.

You stay safe
Stay warm
✌

tons of restaurant jobs . also skihills are hiring now. (better to get those jobs in advance. some places the restaurant jobs are also filled in when the season starts so if you know where you want to go apply now.
might get away without a visa.

I appreciate that man. No nothing special now, just trying to hustle something for the upcoming months.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$20.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $20.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $20.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $20.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $20.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
