Supported Charities

We commit a portion of each and every sale that we do back to the Community through park sponsorship, donations and charity support. We strongly feel that a Healthy Community is a healthy City. Even though we are quite involved with the Community, we still have plenty of time to be dedicated to your home purchase or sale as if you are our only client. We are always looking to work with like-minded charities to support, contact us for more information on how we can work together.


Geoff was a proud board member for 13 years and Past President of the Winnipeg East Am Rotary Club. They meet every second Wednesday morning at 7:30 am at the Nor-Villa Hotel on Henderson Hwy. The Club supports many worthwhile projects locally, nationally and internationally. One of our club's main fundraisers is our annual golf tournament at Elmhurst Golf and Country Club. Geoff was on this committee, and in the past 10 years, we have been able to raise over $100,000 to support the Keep them in School Foundation to help students in the RETSD with their post-secondary education and also raised a further $100,000 for local projects. We have been major sponsors of this tournament.

Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medal

In January 2013, Geoff was awarded the Medal, a new commemorative medal created to mark the 2012 celebrations of the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the Throne as Queen of Canada. The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal is a tangible way for Canada to honour Her Majesty for her service to this country. At the same time, it serves to honour significant contributions and achievements by Canadians. Geoff was honoured to receive this medal from Elmwood-Transcona MP Lawrence Toet and recognizes Regan and their kids for their support.

Concordia Foundation

Regan has been on the Concordia Foundation Board since 2016 and has sat on their annual gala for the past 5 years, and chairing it for the past 4 years where close to $250,000 has been raised during this time. Geoff & Regan are also major sponsors of the Concordia Foundation and have recently funded a Comfort Care Room at the Concordia Hospital to make families more comfortable during their loved one's last days.

KIDS Initiative

Geoff was proud to be the Chair of Kenya Initiative for Development & Sustainability (KIDS) since it's inception in 2010 up until the fall of 2019. Geoff & Regan and their kids Zach & Abby travelled to the field in January 2016 to help disperse funds to the programs as well as to report back first hand to our donors on what KIDS have been able to accomplish. KIDS is a registered charity and their mission is to build children's futures globally while inspiring children locally.

Kenya has been severely affected by drought and extreme poverty which seriously impacted the future of Kenya's children. Child deaths, injuries, malnutrition, lack of education and displacement are some of the many issues Kenya has dealt with.

K.I.D.S. supports development and sustainability in Kenya by:

  • providing food relief to the Masaai community following drought and famine;
  • funding clean water projects;
  • helping to fund the Anytown Africa Feasibility Study (a study conducted to establish a camp to address tribalism/racism issues in Kenya);
  • helping to finance the construction costs for local orphanages; 
  • helping to provide Emergency Relief Funding for Internally Displaced Persons;
  • providing medical care for children in Kibera; and
  • paying school fees for impoverished children and HIV/AIDS orphans in Kibera

Transcona Nationals Football Club

We have become Major Sponsors of the Transcona Nationals, where our Son, Zach, played football for 6 years. As of 2011, the main field was named "Archambault Field" in recognition of our efforts and support of the football club. We are very pleased to play a major role in this organization as we have been very impressed with how well the organization is run. Regan is a past Board member of the Transcona Nationals Football Club and was in charge of merchandise sales.

North End Family Centre

Unfortunately in 2018, The North End Family Centre had to close it's doors. The North End Family Centre was a relatively new community gathering place that provided a comfortable and safe environment for community members to connect and belong that was started in 2009. All of their programs were completely free, to help make it easier for individuals and family members. They also had a professional pastoral staff available for support and encouragement. We had been regular Gold sponsors at their annual Fall supper and have also supported them through our Rotary club as well. We saw how they had been able to help so many people in the area in such a short period of time, we look forward to supporting them for years to come. Geoff also sat on the board of directors from 2014-2016.

During the Christmas 2012 season, we supplied the Centre with 100 Christmas Hampers to give out to families in need that use the services of the Centre.

Contribution to Parks

Local couple make contribution to parks

Regan (left) and Geoff Archambault are donating $120,000 of their own money to make improvements to Archambault Park, formerly Harbour View South Park.

Geoff and Regan Archambault saw a need in their community and decided to do something about it.

"We always feel a need to give back to the community," Geoff said. "A park is a great place for families to meet and have fun."

The Archambaults have committed $120,000 of their own money to improve Harbour View South Park at the corner of Rutledge Crescent and McLellan Drive. The city is contributing $25,000 while the province will provide an additional $30,000.

Improvements will include a picnic shelter, play structure for younger kids, new benches, 35 new trees, and improved drainage in the swing area.

Work on the project is expected to start in September or October.

"We’re trying to make it more age-friendly. Right now it’s geared towards kids aged six to 12," Regan said.

The park was renamed Archambault Park in June to recognize the family’s contributions to the project. To celebrate the upcoming renovations, the Archambaults staged a movie screening on July 23.

According to Geoff, 250 residents from the community came out to enjoy the day, which concluded with a screening of Rio.

Area resident Reid Kenyon took in the event and said the Archambaults are making a much-needed contribution to the community.

"The parks in our area are outdated and in desperate need of a facelift," Kenyon said. "The investment they are providing in improving our parks will enhance the quality of life." 

In addition to donating the money to improve the park in Harbour View South, the Archambaults also plan to donate $30,000 to upgrade Sunrise Park, located down the street on Shauna Way.

The Sunrise Park upgrade will also receive $20,000 from the city and $10,000 from the Rotary Club of Winnipeg East AM, which Geoff currently serves as president of.

"You can’t wait for someone else to do it," Regan said. "When  you see the need and have the means, you should do it."

The couple is hoping that the renovations will entice more people to get outside and enjoy the parks in their neighbourhood.

"It is very important to have parks and recreational offerings for our kids close to home," Kenyon said. "Families will want to spend time together at these parks."

Valley Gardens Community Centre

Geoff is currently on the executive as President and has held other positions in the past such as fundraising chair as well as special projects and treasurer. We have been able to bring some talented and committed board members to the table and change the direction of the club. Since 2015, Geoff has helped to raise over $800,000 and help complete some major projects to help improve the centre such as a new kitchen, 5 new bathrooms, new windows, new lighting as well as many other items. Geoff was also able to help bring an $800,000 investment to the club in the way of a new splash pad. Geoff is currently working towards a $35 million expansion to VGCC to replace the ageing Terry Sawchuk & River East Arenas and build a new 2 sheet ice facility.

The Geoff & Regan Archambault Scholarship

River East Transcona School Division - Since 2009, each year we offer 3 scholarships to the 3 EK/NK high schools Miles MacDonell, River East and Kildonan East. The recipient is a student who has given back to the community by giving their time, raising funds, and doing anything good for the Community. We feel that a strong community makes for a strong City, and feel it is important to recognize the students who have done well for their school and community as a whole.

Children's Wish of Manitoba / Nunavut Chapter - Geoff was on the advisory board of the Children's Wish Foundation for 3 years. Geoff was pleased to be on the organizing committee for The Children's Wish 3rd Annual Tee-Off for a Wish which was held at Elmhurst Golf & Country Club. We have supported many of their fundraisers throughout the year, particularly the annual Shiver Ball, as Geoff was on the Shiver Ball Committee.

Transcona Centennial Square Project

Businesses have Transcona’s back

By: Prescott James | Posted: 05/9/2012 1:47 AM

Real estate agent Geoff Archambault is one of three business owners to contribute.

A trio of area businesses are paying it forward by making significant contributions to the Transcona Centennial Square project.

The Transcona Business Improvement Zone recently announced that three local businesses contributed $245,000 towards the $2.4 million cost of the project, which is aimed at recognizing the neighbourhood’s 100th anniversary.

The three businesses include Geoff and Regan Archambault of Century 21 Realty, Wyatt Dowling Insurance and New Flyer Industries.

The contributions were part of a major fundraising campaign undertaken by the Transcona BIZ.

BIZ executive director Wendy Galagan said the private sector contributions were welcome additions.

The Archambaults’ contribution will go to toward the cost of a performance pavilion while Wyatt Dowling’s will be used for a community wall of fame. New Flyer’s funding will be used for the Peace Water Fountain.

Regan Archambault said it was important for she and her husband to contribute to the community that has supported their business over the years.

"We’ve been involved in the community for quite some time," she said. "When we were approached with this sponsorship opportunity we were quite happy to get on board with this because it will definitely be an asset to the area and we can’t wait to see it come to life."

Wyatt Dowling president Curtis Wyatt said the decision to contribute to the project was a no-brainer since his father started his insurance business in Transcona 40 years ago.

"Our business was founded 40 years ago directly across the street from the new Transcona Square," he said.

"We’ve remained in this community since then and it seemed only natural to continue to create a safe environment for families to go and enjoy the outdoors as a long standing part of this community."

Galagan said the Centennial Square project will have a lasting impact on the community.  "It will be a community gathering site with year-round programming that will offer a location for the business community, residents, organizations and associations to meet and gather to celebrate the community," she said.

Transcona Playground Renewal Association

Because of our work with the Association in the past with the redevelopment of Archambault Park and the plans for Sunrise Park, this great organization has asked Regan to join the Board to help bring more parks in Transcona to life.

Transcona Historical Museum

Regan was on the Board of the museum which showcases the rich history of Transcona. The museum has had it's funding reduced by the City of Winnipeg, so Regan help spearhead a fundraising committee to raise additional funds to keep the Museum open, fresh and vibrant.

Springfield Heights Elementary School

Regan worked hard over 3 years chairing a committee to "Green" the playground at Springfield Heights School in North Kildonan.  This project has involved planting of 25 new trees, adding much needed shade for the children while they play. It also has added a sharing garden where the kids plant vegetables and share them with the local food bank in the area. There is also a new scensory garden and a butterfly garden where the kids are involved with maintaining and learning about nature. We also have a new play structure going in and a wheelchair accessible outdoor classroom for the teachers to take the kids outside to learn.

CNIB Dine in the Dark Committee

The first Dine in the Dark took place at Assiniboia Downs in 2012, and has been a great success every year. Not only does this event raise much needed funds for CNIB, but it also raises awareness for the many diseases that can affect our sight. At the dinner, guests are asked to put on blindfolds and to eat in the dark, to get the feeling of eating while blind. It is a huge eye opener for many.

Winnipeg Humane Society and Winnipeg Animal Services

We sponsor a kennel at WAS where they have been very successful in returning numerous dogs back to their owners with the new licensing program. They have also been able to adopt out many of the other dogs who need a permanent home. Our Rotary club also sponsors one as well. 

At the WHS, we sponsor a cat condo room. These rooms house cats up for adoption and gives them some room to play while they are waiting, and also allows people to go and visit with the cats before deciding if they are a good fit for each other.

CancerCare Manitoba

Geoff has volunteered over 500 hours at their McCharles location in the Health Sciences Centre complex by acting as a "runner" delivering samples and supporting the staff. We have also donated over $25,000 to aid in Cancer research through promotions from our sales.

Big Brothers of Winnipeg

Geoff was a little brother when he was growing up and remained friends with his big brother until his recent passing. He is also very proud to be the official spokesperson for the 2011 fall recruitment campaign with radio commercials running on 1290 sports Radio. There are normally about 100 boys on the waiting list for a Big Brother. We were also the major sponsors for their 2011 Christmas auction with Hustler & Lawless on 1290 Sports Radio.

Political Action Committees

Though not a charity, Regan has been actively involved with the political action committees at all 3 levels with our Winnipeg Realtors Association, Manitoba Real Estate Association as well as the Canadian Real Estate Associations.  Consumer protection is the biggest push at all 3 levels to help ensure that our clients best interests are looked after.
