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

This spring, help us celebrate new beginnings.

Future Habitat homeowner and single mother Gemina is looking forward to having a safe and affordable place to call home for her and her daughter, who is hearing impaired.

Together we can build the beyond to transform lives, but it takes a community. Affordable, accessible homeownership for all is possible.

2021 Annual Report

Collaboration continues to be the hallmark of our work at Habitat for Humanity Canada and in the 49 Canadian Habitat for Humanity organizations that make up our federation. We are proud of our accomplishments and our partners – and their willingness to collaborate – continue to be key to that success. There is much more to be done to solve the housing crisis but we know that together we can do so much.

Rent a BigSteelBox container and help build more Habitat homes

Are you moving or in need of storage this spring or summer? Then look no further than BigSteelBox and help support local Habitat for Humanity organizations at the same time. Rent a BigSteelBox container for your moving and storage needs before July 31, and BigSteelBox will donate $10 from each rental to one of five local Habitat for Humanity organizations, up to a total cash donation of $50,000.

Not only will you have a trusted name in storage, you’ll also be helping Habitat for Humanity build more homes for Canadians in need of safe and affordable housing.

Donations from BigSteelBox during this campaign will support five local Habitat for Humanity organizations including Habitat Halton-Mississauga Dufferin, Habitat Heartland Ontario, Habitat Hamilton, Habitat Greater Ottawa and Habitat Mid-Vancouver Island.

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.

Homeownership

Home is for generations to come
