Our Purpose

The MPC Foundation is focused on improving shelter and housing needs in Canada. We have partnered with several charities related to issues around affordable housing, homelessness, and safe housing, including Shelter Movers and Habitat for Humanity, and strive to “become a conduit for the mortgage industry to help improve our society through charitable activities”.

Our vision is “to be the mortgage industry’s preferred way of contributing to Canada’s communities”. We will share local and national events and initiatives that help combat homelessness and support housing needs. Our mortgage broker community has been an active contributor in improving the lives of Canadians, and the Foundation wants to do its part in amplifying your efforts.

Together, we can raise money and awareness for great causes and help support vulnerable Canadians in a truly meaningful way.
