2020 was an extraordinarily difficult year for many – especially those in our most vulnerable communities.
In the spirit of helping those in need over the holiday season, Canada Protection Plan ran a two-week donation-match fundraiser for Youth Without Shelter, an Etobicoke residence and referral agency supporting homeless youth.
Founded in 1986 by a group of teachers and guidance counsellors frustrated with the lack of safe, emergency housing and support programs for their students, Youth Without Shelter has helped more than 15,000 underprivileged youth to build their confidence and life-skills and to find long-term stable housing and jobs. Open twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, YWS provides shelter and support programs in a safe, non-judgemental environment, with the goal of getting youth off the streets permanently.
Canada Protection Plan, leading life insurance provider, is proud to announce that we have raised $10,000 in support of this wonderful organization and its initiatives. Thank you to all who contributed during the two-week donation match period!
