Maplegate House


Maplegate Shelters have recently expanded to 24 beds to meet the needs of the Algoma East region in Northern Ontario.

Maplegate Shelters established in July of 1982 and incorporated in 1987, as the Elliot Lake Women’s Group to provide safe shelter for women survivors of domestic abuse and intimate partner violence. Homeless sheltering for women and children quickly followed.

Homelessness and lack of services for men led Maplegate shelters to open a 6-bed men's emergency home in June of 2018.  Larry's Place provides support to serve men in distress.  In October of 2018, Maplegate shelters opened a 5-bed Transitional House for women and are currently resourcing additional transitional housing for men as well as women to address the housing crisis.
