Unlocking Canada's hidden housing supply.
Home sharing programs for your community.
Our mission at Happipad is to help unlock the 12 million bedrooms sitting empty every night across Canada, transforming these rooms into an affordable and inclusive form of housing supply.
By helping those with extra space find housing companions that need a place, we are creating happier, healthier, and more sustainable communities.
What We Offer
We help communities respond to immediate housing needs by implementing home sharing programs, advocacy, and education.
Provide students with safe and affordable off-campus housing. Help students integrate with their community, build friendships, meet mentors, and find a home away from home.
Attract workforce to your community with a new supply of affordable, furnished housing with flexible rental terms. Allow workers to plant roots and help your community flourish.
Help seniors to age in place by meeting a housing companion. Whether it's someone their own age or from a different generation, everyone is able to find their ideal match.
Provide newcomers with a warm welcome to your community by connecting them with a local. Homeowners learn about a new culture while newcomers get a little help to start a new chapter of their life.

What Our Partners Say
"The shared-accommodation space is a promising place to look for increasing housing supply. The concept theoretically can help directly solve housing shortages. This looks like the team to do it."
Canada Mortgage and Housing
“We are very excited to bring the Happipad home share program to our province. We feel it's so important to be supporting our older residents while helping newcomers find housing and integrate into our communities.”
“Affordable housing is one of our biggest challenges to overcome. We welcome Happipad to help address our housing challenges by making spare bedrooms available to those who need an affordable place to live.”
