  1. Hello. I'm starting at Mac Med in St Catharine's this fall. Am a single parent and am working on pulling together child care options. Am focusing first on the first 3 months as there will be a commute to Hamilton campus that will require extended child care 2-3 times per week. Wondering if there are any med parents at NRC (or elsewhere) that can recommend a live-out nanny. I'm looking at a variety of child care options and want to have a child care provider I can rely on in the AM and PM for the extended days i'll have to spend in Hamilton for MF1. Any leads would be much appreciated.
  2. I was accepted recently to McMaster's School of Medicine and will be moving close to their Niagara Regional Campus for 3 years. This is a listing for my home in Ottawa. I hope to rent it for the time my daughter and I are away. It might be perfect for incoming med students at Ottawa U. Beautiful and bright 3 bedroom townhouse for rent in Greenboro Ottawa.

  4. Hello I was recently offered admission to the Niagara regional campus and, as a single parent of a soon to be 5 year old, I'd like to learn more about schools and child care options in the area. If you or someone you know was/is a parent at the Niagara campus I would be very grateful to connect. Any pointers in the right direction would be very appreciated as I start my research Thanks

  12. Great work Richard and all the very best! I'm just discovering your thread/story now. I interviewed at Mac this cycle as well. I would have sent you good vibes. I hope everything works out fantastic for you.
  13. Thanks. I'm a single parent and am having serious second thoughts about leaving my home city where my support network is. Especially come clerkship. Am re-thinking a second degree (BSc) to allow me the option of applying to University of Ottawa. That option seems wisest but also like the time it will take to complete isn't feasible given that I'm 41. Not sure. Any non-trads on here with children?
