The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is Canada’s largest public foundation dedicated exclusively to funding women’s shelters and violence prevention programs.
At Royal LePage we support the Royal Lepage Shelter Foundation through commission donations, agent activities and community fundraising events.
Because we believe in the importance of giving back to the community, Royal Lepage is the only Canadian real estate company to have our own charitable foundation. All of the administrative costs of the Shelter Foundation are underwritten so that 100% of every dollar donated goes directly to helping our cause.
Royal Lepage real estate agents and their clients are working to create safer homes and safer communities by contributing more than $12 million since 1999 to help women and children across Canada. Through donating a portion of their commission on the purchase or sale of your property, our agents are helping bring hope and provide shelter for those who need it most.
Our brokers, agents and staff also provide volunteer time and in-kind goods, and hold special community events to help raise funds and awareness to end family violence for more than 30,000 women and children who take refuge in a shelter each year.

Since 1975, the Marie-Vincent Foundation has been helping Québec children under 12 who are victims of maltreatment and more specifically, of sexual aggression.
In response to pressing needs, the Centre d’expertise en agression sexuelle Marie-Vincent was created in 2005 and represents a major investment for the Foundation. Its vision is that all Québec children who are victims of sexual abuse receive specialized services designed to meet their needs. The Centre’s core mission is to offer cutting edge services, treatments and tools to child victims and their families. As such, the Centre is developing a leading expertise and professional skills, while furthering the integration and dissemination of research through the Marie-Vincent Interuniversity Chair on sexual abuse toward children. In addition, the Centre is a training pillar for workers and students, asserting itself as an innovative leader in the development of scientific information in the field.
