The largest host community
for disaster victims

A tailor-made solution for disaster victims, insurance companies and homeowners.

Our story

It all started with a visit to Staples. Alexis then meets an old friend whose house was burnt down six months earlier. As she tells him that she and her family have been staying in a hotel since the disaster, Alexis is stunned. He was surprised that no furnished accommodation relocation service existed in the region at the time. Having furnished accommodation himself, he offers one of them to his friend and family to make their transition more comfortable. He thought to himself that there was certainly nothing unique about this situation.

Based on this evidence, he created Sinistar.ca, a platform that allows homeowners to offer their homes to disaster victims. All this while simplifying the insurer claims process.

Sinistar is now the largest disaster relocation platform in Quebec. With a community of several thousand verified hosts, Sinistar technology is helping families here weather the tough times of a disaster.

Our mission? Optimize access to temporary housing for all Quebecers who are victims of a disaster. Sinistar is a revolution led by a team of young professionals thirsty for progress and innovation. The disaster relocation industry is finally turning to the sharing economy, access to mutual insurance for all and reducing the wealth disparity in Quebec.
