Join our #ConnectAMillion Initiative

Happipad was started in 2017 by a university student looking to match seniors living alone with student renters.

Staying true to the original mission of addressing social isolation among seniors, Happipad is partnering with seniors societies and communities across Canada to connect a million seniors to compatible roommates by 2025.

Anyone affected by senior isolation can support this cause by sharing their story on social media with the #happipad and #ConnectAMillion tags.

Testimonials

Charmaine - Happipad Guest

I was concerned sharing a home at first, but after experiencing living with a wonderful family I would never live in student residence again. We share meals and connect like a family, it's a wonderful feeling.

My children connected with my guest right away and loved to play with her. This gave me more time for myself and a role model for my daughter.

As an international student I was very worried about adjusting to a new community. After moving in with my host I felt like I was right at home. This has been by far my best student housing experience.
