The Beginning

Toques from the Heart was founded in 2019 by Casey, Matt, and Matthew, three McMaster University Students in the GTHA. The three became friends and unified in a common vision to start a business with a meaningful and positive impact.


How it Started

After seeing first hand the problem of homelessness in their communities and the difficulties that they face during the cold winters, Toques From The Heart set out on a mission to give toques to the approximately 35,000 Canadians that experience homelessness on any given night.


Flashback of the past three years with Toques From The Heart!

Year One


Toques From The Heart first began with our unique hockey sock toques. Yes, that's right... We collected thousands of hockey socks from the hockey community which we repurposed by hand into toques and delivered to those experiencing homelessness in the GTHA.

Year Two


The hockey community got very involved in collecting hockey socks and helping give toques. This was the first year we worked with a local manufacturer to develop our very own hockey sock style toques. This allowed us to produce lots quickly so we could sell more and in return give more. We gave 2,500 toques away in the GTHA.

Year Three


We perfected our toques! Improved our classic line and developed a premium line of merino wool toques. We partnered with over 25 orgnaizations to help give our toques Canada wide to those who need them most. Thanks to everyones support we were able to give 5,500 toques away reaching every province and territory.
