Helping Women And Children Escape Violence And Rebuild Their Lives
Because we are committed to strengthening the communities where we live and work, Royal LePage is the only Canadian real estate company with its own charitable foundation. The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is Canada’s largest public foundation dedicated exclusively to funding women’s shelters and violence prevention programs.
Every dollar raised goes directly to helping the more than 50,000 women and children who are served each year by the shelters and support programs we fund. Since 1998, the Shelter Foundation has raised more than $27 million and currently supports 200 local women’s shelters and national partners. Our agents donate a portion of their commissions and Royal LePage offices across Canada hold local fundraising events. Our brokers, agents and staff also volunteer and provide in-kind goods to benefit the women and children residing in their local shelters.

At Royal LePage Infinity we have made it an annual tradition to hold our annual garage sale to support the North York Women's Shelter. Since opening its doors in 1984, North York Women’s Shelter has provided a place of safety and support for women and children impacted by violence. In the 33 years since NYWS’s inception, over 11,000 residents have stayed at the shelter – determined to build lives free of violence and abuse.
Here are some images from our previous events.
We would like to thank all generous people who gave us items to sell at the event and a big thank you to all our volunteers.
