Canada HomeShare began as a program run by the National Initiative for the Care of the Elderly (NICE) as the Toronto HomeShare Pilot Project in 2018 funded by The City of Toronto. We began piloting our model of exchange based cohousing across Canada in 2021. In 2022, Canada HomeShare joined HelpAge Canada, a registered national charity. Established in 1975, HelpAge Canada supports community-based initiatives through its partnerships locally and abroad to improve the lives of older adults and their communities. HelpAge Canada develops innovative projects and leads network-wide collaborations to create a world for all to age with dignity. HelpAge Canada is also a founding member of HelpAge International, the only global, non-profit organization that works to improve the lives of older adults in the developing world.
