Mortgage Brokers show social conscience through Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity Partners with Mortgage Broker Educator REMIC

TORONTO, Sept. 8, 2011 /CNW/ - On Tuesday, August 30, Joe White, President of Real Estate and Mortgage Institute of Canada (REMIC) and Cain Daniel, Director of Education and Training with REMIC presented Habitat for Humanity executive director Mary Bone with a cheque for $1,000.

This donation is just a kick off for what's to come.  Established in 2008, REMIC is an educational organization that provides the course required for mortgage agents to become licensed in Ontario.  Courses are available online and in-class and membership is free.  Going forward, a percentage of the proceeds from the courses will be donated to Habitat for Humanity Durham.

"Mortgage Brokers play an integral role in the home ownership process, so we think it's a great fit for REMIC to partner with Habitat for Humanity to help individuals become homeowners," says Joe.

"It is with great appreciation that we enter into a partnership with REMIC, an innovative company willing to show their social conscience by participating in a new way to raise funds for our organization," says Mary.  "When Joe White approached our affiliate about donating a portion of the proceeds from his training seminars we were absolutely thrilled at the opportunity! We are able to affect the people we serve with the help of companies like REMIC.  One hundred percent of every dollar donated to Habitat for Humanity Durham goes directly to our building program and our new focus is on CentreTowne in Oshawa.  CentreTowne will see 24 new town homes in the next few years, making 24 families' dreams of home ownership come true.  Thank you for believing that everyone has the right to a safe, decent home to call their own."

As Joe adds, "Success is what REMIC strives to deliver through our innovative courses, and success is what Habitat for Humanity helps families achieve. This partnership is undoubtedly destined to have a positive impact on the lives of many families."
