Angels In The Night
Homeless Shelter Project
Angels in the Night is a community effort that delivers newly-purchased coats, blankets, gloves, toiletries, and other essentials to homeless shelters across Canada.
Every year in mid-December, hundreds of Angels in the Night volunteers – Invis and Mortgage Intelligence Mortgage Consultants along with their business and lending partners – hit the streets in cities across Canada from Halifax to Victoria to lend a helping hand to those less fortunate. The newly-purchased clothing and supplies are delivered to approximately 60 homeless shelters in 13+ Canadian cities.
After fundraising throughout the year, Angels in the Night organizers in each participating city work with a number of established homeless facilities to ensure that the goods purchased are needed, and that funds are spent wisely and with greatest impact. Across Canada, the recipient shelters serve a wide range of clients, from mothers with infants and small children, to street youth, to adults and the elderly.
Since 2002, Angels in the Night volunteers have raised over $3 million.

The Canadian Cancer Society
At the Canadian Cancer Society, we are committed to improving and saving lives. That’s why we are always looking for new ways to prevent cancer, find it early and treat it more successfully. It’s why we’re always ready to give people with cancer the help and support they need to lead more fulfilling lives.
We set ourselves apart from other cancer charities by taking a comprehensive approach against cancer. We are also the only national charity that supports all Canadians living with all cancers across the country.
Here’s how we are doing more:
- We are the country’s largest national charitable funder of research into all types of cancer.
- We educate people on how to reduce their risk of cancer and how some types of cancer can be found early through screening tests.
- Our support services help people with cancer and their loved ones at a time when they are scared and anxious.
- We are a trusted source of information about all types of cancer.
- We advocate to governments on important cancer-related issues on behalf of those affected by cancer.
Cops for Cancer
Cops for Cancer is an exciting annual event that takes place each fall, when over a hundred law enforcement and emergency services personnel from across the province brave all types of weather as they cycle up to two weeks across the daunting terrain of Vancouver Island, Northern BC, the coast of British Columbia and the Fraser Valley.
Why? Because the impact of cancer on the life of a child and their family is devastating. Donations made to the Canadian Cancer Society through Cops for Cancer are used to fund life-saving research and caring programs like Camp Goodtimes to reduce its impact on families.
Canuck Place Children’s Hospice provides specialized pediatric palliative care for children living with a life-threatening illness and support for their families throughout British Columbia.
Thanks to the generosity of individual and corporate donors, over 400 British Columbian children and families are able to access Canuck Place’s program and services at no cost to them. The need for our services grows daily and has reached the point where there is a waiting list of families in need of our assistance.
