Connecting Canadians with news, advocacy tools, builder and community resources and, above all, each other to build awareness of the tiny house movement from coast to coast to coast.


LiveTiny is not just a website or a Facebook page. It’s a movement.

We believe that reducing our environmental footprint, decluttering our lives and focusing on that which is most important is the future.

Live Tiny is a forum for raising awareness about a dream, a movement, a way of life: to live tiny.

It takes a small village to keep LiveTiny Canada up and running!  Get to know members of our team below.
