It’s really no secret that the issue of homelessness in Canada - and especially right here in our own city - is very real. In Toronto alone, there’s nearly 93,000 people on a waitlist for subsidized housing. That number is larger than the population of most cities in our country.

Although the personal circumstances that may contribute to a person being without a home ranges in so many ways, there are people from every race, religion and demographic within the Greater Toronto area being affected. Every. Single. Day.

Homelessness isn’t an issue that can be solved overnight, but the opportunity for North Group to do our part, is here. We are excited and proud to announce that North Group is the first real estate team in Canada to partner with Giveback Homes.

We love that they provide an incredible platform for social change by collaborating specifically with the real estate industry to organize home building projects for teams just like us. Their entire mandate aligns so strongly with the foundation of our own team culture in choosing generosity.

At North Group, we do more than just sell homes. We are committed to fostering meaningful relationships, not just within our team, but with our clients and the community. 

Our ongoing success as a team has created this opportunity for us to give back and we want to do it locally, in a way that contributes to a cause close to us, and we’re hoping to encourage other real estate teams to do the same. 

Our entire team of agents and staff will be donating their time and resources to help make what might seem like an impossible dream of homeownership become reality for deserving people in our own community. We’re proud to say that a portion of every real estate transaction with North Group will go towards our Giveback Homes initiative.

However, opportunities like this go way beyond transactions. We plan to extend the same passion we put forth in our real estate business every day back into this amazing cause. Less focus on us and more focus on others. Less surviving and way more dreaming.
