I'm Miranda and I'll be coming from Atlanta, GA, USA. I'm flying in on the 1st and out on the 6th. Since I'm traveling on a budget, I would love to be able to find a homestay in the area. Beyond that, I really want to see some of Toronto while I'm there because I haven't been there yet.

About me:
-23 y.o. female
-New Thought/Unity
-Need a non-smoking and cat-free homestay due to allergies

I'm Steve, a retired Unity minister from San Diego, CA. Finding a homestay for the WPOR from 10/31 - 11/8 would be a wonderful gift as I am coming to the event on a limited budget. Although I am working as a volunteer at the conference, I'd be willing to help out around your home as an expression of my thanks. (My particulars -- 73 years on the planet and happily married, although my wife will not be accompanying me on this pilgrimage!).

Female roommate. please. No smoking. Even if you cannot stay all five nights, let's still talk, okay?

Hello, my name is Donna. My female, systematic theologian professor and I have rented an Airbnb condo directly across the street from the Convention Center, from 11/1 to 11/7. we need a third roommate who would share my bathroom, have full access to the kitchen and laundry, and have a pullout bed to sleep in. total cost per night of USD $83. our only requirements are female, non-smoking. please reply directly to [email protected] (the Parliament's website would not let me change my password, so the other e-mail is an old one I no longer use). THANKS!

My partner Andrew and I are coming from Australia and have space available in a one bedroom apartment we booked from 31st Oct -7th Nov that is only 10 minutes walk from the Metro Convention Centre. There is a pull out sofa bed in a separate room that would accomodate another couple or a single person. The cost would be $500 CAN for a single person for the week, though we are flexible..Kitchen, bathroom, laundry, wifi etc. Please let me know if you are interested: [email protected]
