Our Mission

Choice Cares serves to advance social equity in the communities in which we live and work.

Championed by Colleagues

Colleagues volunteer to form a national committee of Choice Cares Champions, working together to lead philanthropic activities and taking ownership of the success of their region’s campaign. We are building a collective of empowered individuals capable of lasting positive impact.

Become a Charity Partner

We take a bottom-up approach to our Choice Cares program. Our colleagues vote on a socio-economic issue to tackle on a national level and vote on charities to partner with on a local level. We strive to support our communities in a way that is most meaningful to our colleagues. The ways we give back are just as important as what we give back.

Developing Healthy, Resilient Communities

Social Impact Initiatives

Inclusive Local Economic Opportunity Initiative

The Inclusive Economic Opportunity Initiative (ILEO) brings together the private, public, and community sectors to find innovative ways to reduce gaps in economic prosperity at the neighbourhood level. Toronto’s Greater Golden Mile is the first neighbourhood to be part of the initiative.

Choice Properties is a proud ILEO Corporate Charter Signatory, and most recently organized a pop-up market for emerging business owners residing in the Golden Mile area. The market was part of ILEO’s Storefront Starter Program – a free program to help aspiring entrepreneurs in the area launch their business idea.

Homeward Bound Industry Council

Homeward Bound is an innovative program led by WoodGreen that helps homeless or inadequately housed single mothers to earn college diplomas, begin careers, and achieve financial stability and independence.

As a member of the Homeward Bound Industry Council, Choice Properties hires candidates from the program as well as offers educational sessions to introduce program participants to the broad range of employment opportunities available within the real estate industry.

Artist in Residence Program

The Artist in Residence Program is a collaboration between BlackNorth Initiative (BNI), Choice Properties and The Daniels Corp. The Program provides emerging Black artists with the opportunity to provide creative arts programming at one of our rental residential buildings to further develop their work, while animating amenity and community spaces.

This opportunity not only showcases the artistic practice of participating artists, but also offers an engaging lifestyle amenity for residents. The program is designed to provide a local black-identifying artist with living accommodations at a special rate, in exchange for activating the community.

Law in Action Within Schools

Law in Action Within Schools (LAWS) is an organization focused on the education, engagement and support of high school students facing barriers.

Choice Properties is proud to support LAWS by providing guest speakers and mentorship for students pursuing a law career.

Empowering Women in Real Estate

Choice Properties is proud to support the Canadian Association of Women in Construction (CAWIC) and Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW) to help advance gender equity in our industry.

CAWIC and CREW offer its members education and skill-building programs, industry resources, mentorship, and networking opportunities to help support women throughout their construction and real estate careers.

Accelerating Accessibility Coalition

Choice is a founding member of the Accelerating Accessibility Coalition (AAC). The AAC is a first-of-its-kind community of real estate development and accessibility leaders that aims to create a more accessible Canada.
