Canada HomeShare is a program that matches older homeowners with compatible individuals who are looking for affordable housing. The program aims to provide a solution to the challenges of aging alone, social isolation and the high cost of housing. HomeShare participants share a home and their daily lives, creating a mutually beneficial relationship that allows older homeowners to age in place and reduce their housing costs while sharers gain affordable accommodation. The program is based on the principle of intergenerational sharing, and it encourages the sharing of skills, knowledge and companionship between generations. The program is typically operated by non-profit organizations, which provide support, guidance and mediation to participants throughout the matching and sharing process.
