The Levasseur Family has always been committed to supporting the communities we work in and truly care about.
This has lead to some major new initiatives our company is working on and we are very excited to announce.
Levasseur Community Trust
The Levasseur Community Trust will enable us to continue Gerry’s great charitable work, for many years to come. A donation of $2 for every night you stay with INNHotels at any of our ten hotels will directly support local communities. 50% will support local community initiatives and 50% will support local registered charities.
ShopINN Local is provided by the INNHotels' "Family". Dedicated to supporting local families, communities and small businesses located in Alberta and British Columbia.
Rocky Mountain Art Tour
A once in a lifetime dream vacation through the Canadian Rockies going through Jasper, Canmore, Invermere and more. There are so many creative, culturally unique, and passionate artists that are excited to share their time and talents. Each community has an abundance of unique cultural experiences to guarantee a true Canadian Adventure.
In order to move forward with this vision, we have partnered with Sustainable Tourism2030. As a goal for our company, we aim at creating a sustainability strategy, which will help us measure and improve our practices at each location, reduce our carbon footprint and go greener with our development.
We are committed to building relationships based on truth, healing, and reconciliation with Indigenous peoples in Canada.
To honor this commitment, all of our management and staff have begun to take Indigenous Cultural Awareness courses.

Levasseur Community Trust donates an incredible gift to the local Stony Plain & Parkland Pioneer Museum
On September 30, 2021, The Levasseur family donated a 1918 Willys-Overland vehicle to Stony Plain and Parkland’s Pioneer Museum.
"History and our heritage can show us where we came from and where our future might lie," said Gerard Levasseur, who represented his parents Gerry and Helga Levasseur and sister Lisa Levasseur.
Museum president Clifford Goerz, whose antique-loving father Henry Goerz helped create the museum 27 years ago, says the institution has over the years been handed 10,000 antiques or more.
"Gerard bought the classy, mint-conditioned Overland in St. Louis years ago and we are so proud to display this treasure in our museum. It is the forerunner to the Jeep."
The family is delighted that the car will now serve as a piece of history and teachings as a new addition to the museum.
