New Brunswick Community College
(St. Andrews and Miramichi Campuses)


Canada HomeShare and its partner, Happipad, are proud to offer intergenerational home sharing with New Brunswick Community College at their St Andrews and Miramichi campuses.  

Located along the banks of the beautiful world-famous Miramichi River, the NBCC Miramichi Campus is part of one of the prettiest communities in New Brunswick. The St. Andrews campus, meanwhile, is in a historic seaside community on the Passamaquoddy Bay known as one of Canada’s first resort towns.

For both cozy, tight-knit campuses, home sharing was an obvious choice for students and community members alike seeking to strengthen the communities’ small-town charm and welcomeness while meeting demand for housing solutions.

Ann Drennan, Vice President, Academic, Innovation and Student Affairs at NBCC, is pleased that students will have another option when seeking accommodations.

“Through this partnership, we’re hopeful that our learners will find a comfortable space that really feels like home away from home,” said Drennan. “We’re excited about the ways that inter-generational housing can be an enriching experience for everyone involved: students can secure safe, affordable accommodation during their studies, and seniors benefit by getting a little extra income, companionship and, in some cases, a bit of help around the house.”
