Information for Landlords

The Canadore Home Share Program is designed to help diversify housing options for students. The program is designed to collect information from both parties, and make a preliminary match based on preferences and living habits. With this program, landlords can rent out spare rooms in their home and generate income while also providing a valuable service to students in need of housing.
