RE/MAX real estate professionals believe in giving back to the communities in which they live and work, with a charitable focus on strengthening the foundation of this country’s great neighbourhoods. RE/MAX does this by lending support to valuable local initiatives, organizations and programs that make a profound difference in the care and quality of life for Canadians, such as Children’s Miracle Network (CMN), through the Miracle Home Program and Miracle Commercial Property Program.
Since RE/MAX and CMN first partnered in 1992, Canadian RE/MAX agents have donated more than $89 million to their local children’s hospitals through the Miracle Home or Commercial Miracle Property program. CMN raises funds and awareness for 12 Children’s Hospitals in Canada, and donations stay local to fund critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric equipment and research.
Meet 11-Year-Old Evelyn
Evelyn is active, outgoing, and loves to dance and do cartwheels. But in Grade 2, her life took an abrupt turn in a direction that she and her family could not have imagined.
Evelyn developed a fever and sore jaw which both a walk-in clinic and emergency room physician attributed to a virus. A week later, the pain and fever were back, and one side of her face was sore and swollen. After more physician visits, a blood test was ordered.
That night, Evelyn’s mother got a call from the lab telling her to immediately take Evelyn to BC Children’s Hospital. Within hours, the family received unfathomable news – Evelyn had acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). If not treated quickly, this type of leukemia could be fatal.
Evelyn started chemotherapy the very next day and was treated at BC Children’s Hospital. In the beginning, Evelyn received her ALL treatment every two weeks, for four days at a time. She completed her treatment in the fall of 2021 and is now back at school, seeing her friends, performing again, and full of life.
Her form of cancer is very curable if the patient receives the right care and at the right time. Thanks to BC Children’s Hospital, Evelyn quickly got what she needed and is thriving.

The Miracle Home and Commercial Miracle Property Program
The Miracle Home and Commercial Miracle Property program is and exclusive program to RE/MAX agents, where participating agents donate on behalf of their clients after each property sale or lease.

What is a Miracle Home or Commercial Miracle Property?
When you buy, sell, or lease a property with a RE/MAX agent you can help make miracles happen. A RE/MAX agent who is participating in either program, will designate your home as a Miracle Home or Commercial Miracle Property. A Miracle Home listing will display a specially branded RE/MAX for Sale sign, which shows prospective buyers that their purchase will also contribute to a good cause in the neighbourhood they will be joining, and Commercial Miracle Properties will be advertised locally, regionally, nationally and across North America. Once your home or commercial property sells or leases, your agent will donate to your local CMN member hospital on your behalf. You can feel good knowing that when you choose to list with a RE/MAX agent who participates in the Miracle Home or Commercial Miracle Property program, you are also choosing to help make a difference in a child’s life.
Thank you for choosing RE/MAX. By positively changing the health of children, we will change the health of Canada.
