Looking for home in Nanaimo/Courtenay/Gabriola Island/Whitehorse

We are a family of 5 looking to rent or house sit on Vancouver Island (in or near Courtnay/Cumberland or Nanaimo/Gabriola Island) or in Whitehorse (Yukon) for the next academic school year (2020/2021). We are also open to a house exchange with our 4-bedroom home on Wolfe Island, a commuter island to Kingston, Ontario, home of Queen's University and St. Lawrence College. The home has a water view of Lake Ontario, a very large yard with plenty of outdoor toys, and a cedar hedge around the property. Pictures available on request.
We are an adventurous and hard-working family. The mother of the family teaches grade 1 French Immersion and is taking a Masters' of Arts in Counselling Psychology through Yorkville University. The father of the family teaches carpentry and computers at St. Lawrence College, runs his own business (joecalnan.com), and is an award-winning original researcher of Great Lakes Maritime history. The eldest child is off to university in the fall of 2020, while younger children are in kindergarten and grade 2 French Immersion. As a family we enjoy wilderness camping trips and different cultures. Spoken languages include: French, German, Italian and Thai (varying degrees of proficiency/experience).
