Our Philosophy.

At Happipad, we are re-imagining what affordable housing is. We believe that a home is more than just a shelter – it’s a sanctuary where one should feel happy, safe, and be able to plant roots and stay for a long while or just a few months, depending what life brings your way.

Our mission is to help build community while combatting affordability, creating comfortable spaces where you can feel like you belong. We do this by creating intentional shared homes that strike the perfect harmony of affordability, comfort, and privacy. We believe in fostering human connection among like-minded people, allowing you to build life-long friendships. Sharing a home not only helps save money and the environment, it allows for sharing meals, carpooling, sharing stories, movies, and even our ultra-high speed internet!

Welcome to a place where real connections and a happier, more sustainable life await you.

Register on our waiting list to rent in our first buildings, coming in 2024!

Where will Happipad homes be built?

Happipad is currently planning building sites in Central British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, and Nova Scotia. More sites will be added based on interest and requests we receive. If you want to see a home built in your community, fill out an interest form.

When will homes be available?

Our first homes will start construction in Q1 2024.

What is the targeted price of rent for the buildings?

Rent prices are intended to be affordable for workforce. We have a price target similar to studio apartments with a goal to be 20% less than market rent. Renters will also save money by sharing resources such as utilities, internet, carpooling and car share options.

What is a co-living building?

A co-living building is a large home that contains private bedroom units with shared communal spaces such as kitchens and living rooms. This design allows for lower building and operational costs, allowing renters to save money, while also creating fun home atmospheres that connect like-minded people.

Happipad is a Canadian social enterprise dedicated to addressing Canada’s affordable housing crisis. Happipad connects hosts with compatible renters for home sharing. It offers a safe, reliable and intuitive platform for hosts to rent out their spare rooms and for renters to find affordable housing solutions.

Who manufactures the housing modules?

Happipad works with CSA-certified and vetted modular construction companies across Canada to construct the modules to our design specifications. This allows us to deliver modules to most regions of Canada. Homes are built to a high energy efficiency for low utility costs and environmental impact. Homes are built for long life using light gauge steel framing when possible, double walls for sound isolation, and durable low-maintenance finishings.

What is the estimated monthly rent for these units?

Monthly rent will vary by community (land cost). Rent will include utilities and basic furnishings. Estimated monthly rent for small bedroom units is estimated to start at $950 and $1300 for large bedrooms.

How are the homes managed?

Happipad manages all co-living homes, collects rent, and deals with any renter conflicts.

Each home also has one resident assigned as the live-in household manager to ensure cleanliness and order in the home and to hold regular social events to maintain a happy home environment.

What is it like living in a co-living home?

Each home is designed for the optimal blend between giving each person their own private space and adequate shared spaces. Renters will experience greater space and amenities compared to a studio apartment while saving on rent. Each home has a live-in household manager to schedule regular social events, game nights, and group dinners; all while ensuring the home is kept clean and in order. Some may say it’s like living in a big family home where your friends always get to stay over.
