Canada HomeShare – An Intergenerational Housing Innitiative

Canada HomeShare is a non-profit intergenerational housing initiative that matches older adult home providers with students to live together. In exchange for affordable ($400-$600 per month) and safe housing close to campus, students contribute up to 7 hours per week of assistance around the home and/or companionship for their home provider. The Canada HomeShare process is overseen by a team of social workers and all eligible participants receive a Vulnerable Sector Screening Check (paid for by the program), a personal reference check, two screening interviews and a home safety check as part of the application process.

Canada HomeShare began as Toronto HomeShare in 2018 and has since expanded to become a national program! Our goal is to support older adults to age-in-place, reduce social isolation, and address the affordable rental crisis faced by students. We are currently holding weekly virtual information sessions on our website if you would like to learn more.
