Our hard work and success mean nothing if we don’t give back and support our communities and those in need.
Here are some of the causes we give back to:
Dedicated to the Eradication of Heart Disease
At the risk of sounding trite, this is a cause close to our hearts. The UOHI hopes to cure heart disease in the next 50 years, a disease that affects one in every three people. With groundbreaking ingenuity and discovery, the UOHI is making significant gains into heart disease research. The Institute provides world-class care to those affected by heart disease through the tireless efforts of their doctors, nurses, and many volunteers.

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 30,000 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 $18 million and currently supports 200 local women’s shelters and national partners. Our agents donate a portion of their commissions to the Foundation and our offices hold fundraising events across Canada. Our brokers, agents, and staff also volunteer and provide in-kind goods to benefit the women and children residing in their local shelters.
