Maple Leaf Tours, is a social enterprise, and is deeply rooted in our community, driven by a steadfast commitment to make a positive impact.  Our team is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of women by extending our support to a local women’s shelter, Lennox and Addington Interval House.  

We have implemented a new impactful initiative, “Toiletrees” where clients collect hotel toiletries while on their travels and return them to us to donate to Lennox and Addington Interval House a local women’s shelter.  The collection and donation of items such as shampoo, conditioner, toothbrushes, soap, sewing kits, and more is greatly needed. 

We understand the tremendous courage it takes for women to leave behind abusive or unstable environments and start anew.  Our aim is to instill hope in the hearts of these brave women, showing them that they are not alone in their journey towards healing and independence.

As a woman who has experienced domestic abuse, Kristine launched this initiative that is very close to her heart, to support women and children in our area. “We firmly believe in creating a safe and nurturing environment for women and children who have experienced hardships and are seeking refuge.  By partnering with women’s shelters, we strive to create a supportive network that empowers women to reclaim their strength, find their voice, and envision a future filled with possibilities.” says Kristine Geary

By collaborating with the women’s shelter, we aim to empower women, offer them a sense of security, and help them rebuild their lives. Together, we strive to make a lasting impact and promote a society where every woman feels valued and protected.  

We have aligned our business goals with the betterment of society and we strive to uplift and empower individuals and communities.

With every endeavor, we aim to foster inclusivity, inspire change and ultimately create a brighter future for all. Together, we are shaping a community where everyone has the opportunity to thrive and flourish.  Through our contributions, material and financial, we strive to create a supportive network that empowers women to reclaim their strength, find their voice, and envision a future filled with possibilities

“Lennox & Addington Interval House provides safe shelter, transitional housing, 24 hour crisis line and ongoing counselling services for abused women and their children. Services are provided to those who have been physically, sexually, emotionally or financially abused or those who fear they will be assaulted. Trained and committed staff offer supportive counseling, referrals and advocacy, crisis intervention and safety planning. Lennox & Addington Interval House also has a Youth in Transitional Housing program which provides short-term housing and supports for youth ages 16-29.

Ending domestic violence against women requires a collaborative, multi-faceted approach, involving all levels of the community. With support from the community LAIH is able to provide places of safety for women to live free of violence. Moving our communities one step closer to a  world where all women and children live in homes free of violence and fear.” – Lennox & Addington Interval House
