Fort McMurray Needs Our Support

Friday May 06th, 2016


Due to a devastating wildfire, a state of emergency has been declared in Fort McMurray, Alberta. All 80,000 inhabitants have been evacuated from their homes and some neighbourhoods have been completely destroyed.

The Canadian REALTORS Care® Foundation is now accepting donations to the Canadian Red Cross’ Alberta Fires Appeal. Donations will provide relief for those affected in the form of emergency food, clothing, shelter, personal services and other necessities to help assist with recovery and resiliency.

In solidarity with the Fort McMurray Real Estate Board, the Alberta Real Estate Association, the Canadian Real Estate Association and the Canadian REALTORS Care® Foundation are asking all Boards, Associations and REALTORS® across Canada to give what they can.

By donating through our Foundation, you’ll help show fellow REALTORS® and Canadians in Fort McMurray that REALTORS® from across the country are here to help in their time of need. The more money we raise together, the stronger that message will be.

Boards, Associations, REALTORS® and friends can donate securely via our website, Click here to make your tax-receiptable contribution now. We are also accepting cheques by mail at the address found here.

In addition to making a donation, we urge you to spread the word about this disaster and how others can help. Please visit our Facebook Page and Twitter account to find content you can easily share with your social networks.

On behalf of our Board, thank you for your ongoing generosity and involvement in your communities.

Best wishes,

Ralph Fyfe

Chair, Canadian REALTORS Care® Foundation
