Anyone in the Northern Canada region? I'm looking for permie friends as I'm moving with my two little ones to a secluded island plot. Not sure about romance right now lol, but would love some people to vibe with, and maybe even some people to move onto the land with me, even if temporarily.

i almost bought a property on the north end of the island where it is unorganized township

it was an amazing property but a bit out of my price range
75 acres on a nice sized lake.. not too far from the hwy

keep an eye out for fossils if you visit any of the beaches
beautiful area!

Aani Kandice,

I'm in Central.  If you're not already on the "Resilient Manitoulin" google group, I suggest you check it out.  I believe you just need to contact the moderator, Gary, to request access: resilient-manitoulin@googlegroups.com - there are about 300 of us around the island who use this group to connect.  

Also, check this site out as well: https://www.gnusystems.ca/manimatr.html

Welcome and good luck.
 
I knew that guy would be trouble! Thanks tiny ad!
