Heartland’s way of giving back
Although we do business across Ontario, we remain a local company at heart…because of you!
We know our agents, brokers and staff have strong ties in the communities where they work and live, so who better to help us find meaningful ways to give back locally. After all, your community is our community!
Be an advocate for your own community, and tell us how our funds can help a project or initiative that’s close to your heart.
