Spring & Fall Shoe Drives — April & September/October

Every year, we hold our annual Spring & Fall Shoe Drives, taking place in April and September 15th — October 15th. Donate your shoes for a good cause! Every single pair of shoes will go towards the thousands of individuals in need across Canada.

When making a shoe donation:

The cost of shipping the footwear across Canada adds up—it costs about $1 to ship one pair of shoes—so, individuals and groups are also welcome to donate funds towards shipping.


What has laces, is covered in original art and helps the less fortunate get a decent pair of shoes?


My Canvas Has Laces is a project to help raise money for Shoe Bank Canada whose efforts help those in need with the most fundamental of clothing: the shoes on our feet. Artists from across Canada will use a blank pair of shoes as their ‘canvas’ that will be auctioned off at our Gala event on October 14, 2017 to support Shoe Bank Canada’s expansion into Lower Mainland.
