About Us

Welcome to Happipad, where we are dedicated to addressing Canada’s pressing affordable housing crisis with a refreshing approach. Our mission is simple yet impactful: to create a safe, seamless, and enjoyable experience for individuals seeking to share homes. We firmly believe that fostering compatibility among housemates not only alleviates financial burdens but also plays a pivotal role in nurturing meaningful friendships and cultivating an inclusive society.

With over 12 million empty bedrooms across Canada, there is ample space to accommodate everyone and foster a sense of belonging for all. At Happipad, we are committed to making a positive difference by connecting people and creating opportunities for shared living that transcend traditional boundaries.

A better way to rent

We believe that sharing homes offers an ideal solution to address the housing supply shortage in a unique and efficient manner. Unlike traditional construction projects that require time and resources, sharing homes provides an immediate and sustainable option. By utilizing existing housing stock, we unlock untapped potential and offer affordable living spaces that are readily available. This innovative approach benefits not only those seeking affordable housing but also homeowners looking to earn extra income. Through shared living, we not only alleviate financial pressures but also foster a sense of community and connection.

At Happipad, we are proud to facilitate a rental experience that is both practical and socially rewarding, contributing to the growth of more inclusive, sustainable, and connected communities.

Our hosts love Happipad

“I’ve been a host with Happipad for a couple years now and have nothing but great things to say! I started with Happipad because I wanted to reach out to help students find a place, they can feel comfortable in and call home. Our current student is truly a part of our family.”

Paulette Facca

Host since 2019

“The whole idea of Happipad is a win both for the guest and the host. The selection methods, the security and safety, and your management of the program. I have learned how important building an operating agreement with my renter is.”

“I was a bit hesitant when I first signed up, sharing your home with the unknown was scary . Happipad helped me through it. As it turned out we were both pretty pleased with our roomy and happipad!”
