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 World Partnership Walk
In 1985, a group of women in Vancouver came together to raise funds to support the work of Aga Khan Foundation Canada (AKFC). All of them had come from Africa or Asia and wanted to give back to the communities they left behind. They persuaded 1,000 other Canadians to join them in a walk to fight global poverty and raised $55,000. That first walk grew into an annual event, held in 10 cities across Canada with the support of tens of thousands of volunteers, corporate sponsors and participants.
Now more than 30 years later, the World Partnership Walk has raised more than $95 Million – making it the largest event in Canada in support of international development.
100% of funds raised are used by AKFC to help alleviate poverty and build sustainable solutions in the poorest regions of the world. These funds support meaningful projects identified and implemented by local communities – projects that revitalize rural economies, ensure clean water and sanitation, strengthen community-based organizations and educate new generations of girls and women.

Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity Canada is a national, non-profit organization working towards a world where everyone has a safe and decent place to live. We’re committed to helping low-income families caught in the vicious cycle of poverty.
We believe in making affordable housing accessible to families who are forced to choose between providing shelter and providing food. Between paying rent and paying bills. These are choices no family should have to make.
With more than 1.3 million Canadian families in need of affordable housing, this need must not only be heard, but addressed. That’s why Habitat for Humanity Canada is calling on you to join us in bringing this issue to the forefront. For more information, visit Habitat.ca.
