We bring communities together to help families build strength, stability and independence through affordable homeownership

When you give today, you'll help us raise the 80% of building costs for 155 homes this year!

This spring, you can help build a home for a family in need of affordable housing!

In 2019, we partnered with Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) to build 414 new homes for families living with low income in various communities across Canada. In 2020 despite the COVID crisis, we were able to complete 100 new homes and start the building of 116 homes! This year, in our final year of partnership with the support of you and CMHC we intend on hitting our goal by building 155 homes in 2021. You can help us raise 80% of the funding needed and CMHC will provide the remaining 20%.

Framing the Future

Strategic Plan 2021-2024

At Habitat for Humanity Canada we believe now is the time for a bold new strategy, one that will see us significantly increase our impact in Canada and around the world.

Together with 50 local Habitats across Canada, our volunteers, supporters and partners, we will transform many more lives by smoothing the path to stability and self-reliance through housing.

When it comes to household furniture — donate, don’t ditch

Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore challenges Canadians to keep one billion pounds out of landfills by 2022. Not surprisingly, Canadians have long been motivated to do their part to help the environment. However, according to a new survey by Habitat ReStore, while they do well when it comes to recycling smaller items, their habits do not translate to household items and building supplies.
