18-year old U of T student Zoe Butcher (right) shows roommate Catherine Finlayson, 61 (left), an app on her phone. Finlayson enjoys having Butcher keep her on top of the latest technology and popular culture trends. The two roommates are part of the Toronto HomeShare Pilot Project where university students are paired with senior-citizens who have a spare room in their homes. Students are expected to help out around the house doing chores and light housework in return for subsidized rent. (Photograph by Della Rollins)
