“RE/MAX Canada is proud to support the communities in which we live and work,” says Christopher Alexander, President of RE/MAX Canada. “The Quest for Excellence directly helps individuals by easing the financial burden of post-secondary education, but bigger picture, programs like these also motivate others to give back to their communities, while highlighting the good that’s happening all around us. We received more than 3,100 entries last year, these astounding young adults have donated their personal time for the betterment of their communities, which has made a positive impact and has enriched the lives of others.”
