Swapsity Vision

Swapsity envisions a world where the barter economy empowers people and contributes to creating a better balance in one’s budget, lifestyle and relationship with the planet.

Swapsity Mission

Swapsity serves the community by educating, engaging and empowering it; inspiring a different way of thinking in this rapidly changing world.

We seek to enable Canadians to live more economically, collaboratively and sustainably by building a vibrant bartering community.

Swapsity endeavours to make barter accessible to more Canadians and create opportunities for the community to grow the swapping ecosystem, online and offline.

We believe that positive changes in human, environmental, social and financial needs can be achieved by growing modern barter.

We seek to spark a shift in the way you relate to people, possessions, and the planet.

The Creation of Swapsity

Did you know that:

  • 32% of Ontarians don't know what to do with their unwanted stuff
  • The average Canadian household wastes $1,300 a year on items that are purchased but never used
  • The average person has between 500 and 700 skills. Unbelievable, isn’t it?
  • Half of Canadians are living paycheque to paycheque, while an average Canadian is $26,000 in debt
  • In a survey done by the American Psychological Association, 73% of people listed money as the number one factor that affects their stress level
  • 99% of stuff in North America is trashed within 6 months of purchase
  • We consume 1.5 planets worth of resources
  • 8 out of 10 people say sharing makes them happy

We live in a society of imbalances—owning tons of stuff, accumulating record debt, having less time for community engagement, all while depleting the planet’s resources.

We think there is an increasing need for implementing effective solutions that will revive our budgets, lifestyle, and environmental consciousness, which led us to create Swapsity.

Swapsity was created to facilitate:

  • The exchange of unused stuff
  • The conversion of skills, services, talents and knowledge into other goods and services of value
  • Alternative form of financing
  • Connections between like-minded swappers
  • Reducing waste and making a positive environmental impact

Join us in swapping for a brighter future!
