Canada HomeShare has launched a pilot program in Mississauga, Brampton, and Caledon. Run by the National Initiative for the Care of the Elderly (NICE) with support from the Region of Peel, Peel HomeShare matches older adults who have a spare room with post-secondary students who need housing. Students pay $400-$600 a month for rent and contribute 5-7 hours/week of companionship and/or assistance around the home.
Applications for home providers and students are now being accepted for the January 2022 school term. The entire process, from application to finding an appropriate home share match, is carefully overseen by NICE social workers in accordance with all COVID-19 protocols.
