As this is a new site, we are offering free listings to build up our database of properties. Searching will always be free, but some time in the future we will be asking a very nominal fee for any ads placed on the site. All advertisers will have full access to all the features this site offers.

Yes, there are many rental sites available,such as kijiji, but you need to filter through all the other rentals.  With Room8, we recognized that with today’s housing shortages and high prices, more and more people are looking to share their property or rental to offset the rising costs.  We are strictly focused on Shared Accomodations.

This can happen for several reasons.  Perhaps you are in a new home that Google hasn’t found yet, or you have a rural address not recognized.  Be sure you enter ONLY the street name (no suite numbers) in the Address field and submit even with the error..  Often the system will find the location anyway.  Another open is to drag the pin to your address and set the location that way.  If none of these work, please reach out to us at

If you are emailing about this issue, please provide us with your listing information as well as your street address.

The first most obvious answer is that there are simply no listings available in your city at this time. Keep in mind, when you search a city name, it will search all cities within a 100 kilometer range. 

Please check back often as we will be making an effort to advertise in first all the major centers in Canada. Hopefully from there, word of mouth will add more properties. 

This is to protect you against any spam. Tis simply means when this property owner registered, they were entered first into a pending status. We then check the listing to ensure its accuracy as best we can to ensure this is a legitimate listing. 

PLEASE NOTE: We are not responsible for any claims against any landlords or roommates.  It is your responsibility to perform your own due diligence.  Please see our Disclaimer page for more information.

We take any inappropriate or offensive content very seriously.  If you would like to report a property or landlord, please click through to the property details page where you will see a red button labeled, “Report This property to Admin“.

After two months your advertisement will automatically expire and be removed from the website. This will ensure site visitors will always be looking at new content.  If your ad has expired and you haven’t had any results, please feel free to post again.
