Hello, Dana, and welcome! I looked for your profile on the website and didn’t see it. In order for other members to know you are there, you will need to create a profile, either as someone with a home to share or as someone looking for a place to live. It sounds like you should list yourself as a Home Sharer, since you have an apartment to share. Then you can see the profiles of people who are looking for a place to live and can contact them directly. I see two people who are looking for a home in Ottawa currently. If you are having difficulty filling out the profile, contact us by email at the address above.
The Forum is brand new, so members may not have got into the habit of looking here yet.
Hope this helps!
