About

Shoe Bank Canada is a non-profit social enterprise operating in Canada and a registered charitable organization.

Shoe Bank Canada collects shoes from warehouses of footwear companies and the closets of people like you. We distribute these shoes, free of charge, to people in need across Canada. Read our story.

Our Vision

We endeavour to help reduce poverty in Canada by ensuring that all Canadians have access to a decent pair of shoes through being the leader in no-cost shoe distribution. 

Theory of Change

By providing shoes, we can improve livelihoods of Canadians and ease the burden of the monthly family budget.
