Shelter Movers Edmonton is a volunteer-powered charitable organization providing moving and storage services at no cost to individuals and families fleeing abuse. We collaborate with local businesses and community agencies to support people, primarily women and children, as they transition to a life free of violence.

Launching Soon

On December 9th 2022, the Honourable Marci Ien, Minister for Women and Gender Equality and Youth, met with Shelter Movers Executive Director, Marc Hull-Jacquin in Edmonton to announce funding for Shelter Movers’ Prairies Scale Up project. The new project will establish chapters across the Prairies, beginning in Alberta.

Shelter Movers Edmonton is one of the first chapters launching as part of our expansion into the prairies!

“One of the most dangerous times in the life of someone experiencing violence is when they are getting ready to leave. Through this investment in Shelter Movers, we are committed to making part of that decision easier. After meeting with members of Shelter Movers today, I’m inspired by how these incredible people, who are mostly volunteers, work day in and day out to ensure that survivors of gender-based violence can move safely and quickly from unsafe environments. I’d like to ask Canadians to consider volunteering for organizations like Shelter Movers—to strengthen your own communities and improve the quality of life of all Canadians."
