Your Summer Home:

Temagami Ontario – Sandy Inlet on Lake Temagami.  This is a dream setting for a dream job.  Crystal clear waters of Lake Temagami – kilometres of sandy beach and a beautiful river flowing through the property.  Wilderness trails abound.  Nature soothes and loons call.  Sunsets paint the big open sky before stars like you’ve never seen brighten the night.  It is a remote setting completely off the grid with little reception. 

Dates of employment:  June 17th to August 30th, 2023

Compensation to be discussed and will be commensurate to similar roles at Wanapitei.
