The real estate software company Yardi added a new feature to their rental listing portal Point2 that will help Nova Scotia residents who were displaced in ongoing wildfires find temporary shelter.

To locate these properties, evacuees can use the filter “NS Wildfire Relief Rentals” and find all the homes that were made available as temporary shelters. Posting a listing on is free and Yardi has asked housing providers to add as many emergency shelter properties as possible.

“As a company that is committed to using technology to positively impact our communities, Yardi is proud to collaborate with the Province of Nova Scotia to aid those affected by the wildfires,” said Peter Altobelli, vice president and general manager of Yardi Canada Ltd.
