About Raising the Roof

Raising the Roof provides strong and effective national leadership on long-term solutions to homelessness through partnership and collaboration with diverse stakeholders, investment in local communities, and public education.

Since beginning in 1996, Raising the Roof has brought national attention to the issue of homelessness through programs that are focused on: raising awareness and understanding of the issue of homelessness; identifying barriers and solutions to the issue; providing tools and resources for those who work to alleviate homelessness; encouraging networking and sharing of best practices; and engaging individuals, communities and the private sector in solutions.

About the Toque Campaign

Since 1997, Raising the Roof’s Annual Toque Campaign has supported long-term solutions to homelessness across Canada.

To date, Raising the Roof has generated almost $4 million for local Partner agencies working towards lasting solutions to homelessness.

Where the money goes:

  • 80% of the net proceeds from the Toque Campaign benefit grassroots Partner Agencies helping homeless people in cities and towns across Canada
  • The remaining 20% of net proceeds supports Raising the Roof’s national homelessness initiatives like Child & Family Homelessness and Youthworks.

Together we can make a difference, one toque at a time!
