Housing Family Program:

Do you have a spare bedroom and want to contribute to the success of an aspiring Toronto Blue Jays Prospect?

The Vancouver Canadians Baseball Club is looking for a handful of local families who have an available bedroom and willingness to welcome a Vancouver Canadians player into their family during the season.

Our Housing Family Program connects our players with families who live in Vancouver and the North Shore to stay with them during their time as a Vancouver Canadian. For many players, Vancouver is their first stop on their journey to the Big Leagues, so our housing families help provide a safe and welcoming foundation which allows them to focus on baseball during the summer.

Housing families are expected to include their player in meal planning, and provide accommodations for the summer months of mid-June to late August. C's players become a cherished part of the family, and in many cases, keep in touch long after their time in Vancouver is complete. Housing Families receive Season Tickets to cheer their player on all season long. If you'd like to receive more information on becoming a Canadians Housing Family, please email Allan Bailey at abailey@canadiansbaseball.com.

 

Volunteer Team Driver:

The Vancouver Canadians are looking for a handful of volunteer team drivers to help transport our players to and from their Vancouver homes to Scotiabank Field at Nat Bailey Stadium during the season when the team is at home. A standard drivers licence and driving history is mandatory, but professional driving experience is not required. Our volunteer drivers are part of our Canadians family, and receive Season Tickets to cheer on the C's during the 2018 season. If you'd like to be a volunteer driver this season, please email us at staff@canadiansbaseball.com.
