The Region of EXIT Realty Eastern Ontario collaborated with Habitat for Humanity Greater Ottawa earlier this year in a targeted fundraising campaign. In 2017, Habitat GO embarked on its largest project to-date; the construction of 16 townhouses on a parcel of land in Orleans, Ontario, near Ottawa.

A portion of every transaction fee collected by EXIT Realty Corp. International is applied to its charitable fund.  Through the Spirit of EXIT Dollar-for-Dollar Matching Program, EXIT offices and associates can raise money for local, approved, registered charities, including Habitat for Humanity, and apply to EXIT’s head office to have those funds matched from the company’s pledged pool of funds.  To-date, EXIT has pledged $4 million to charity.

A.J. Plant, Regional Owner of EXIT Realty Eastern Ontario, applied to have EXIT’s Head Office match the funds raised in the campaign to the tune of $20,000.  However, the success of the campaign exceeded expectations and a total of $31,654.97 was raised.  Along with EXIT’s match, a total of $51,654.97 was donated to Habitat GO.

This was a big year for Habitat for Humanity Canada, hosting the 34th Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project which took place in every province and territory to mark Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation.  EXIT Realty Corp. International was a proud sponsor and A.J. Plant along with Maggie Tessier, Broker/Owner of EXIT Realty Matrix, Brokerage with offices in Embrun and Orleans, and other EXIT Realty associates, participated in builds across the country.
