Habitat for Humanity Canada
To mobilize volunteers and community partners in building affordable housing and promoting homeownership as a means to breaking the cycle of poverty.
Habitat for Humanity Canada is a national, non-profit, faith-based organization working for a world where everyone has a safe and decent place to live.
The organization was founded in 1985, consists of 30,000 volunteers and 70 Affiliate organizations from coast to coast, and is a member of Habitat for Humanity International which spans 100 countries, has built over 200,000 homes, and is now building a new home every 24 minutes.
We have several programs:
- Global Village - volunteer short-term house-building trips abroad, consisting of teams of eight to twenty volunteers spending a week or more building houses in partnership with local families
- Women Build - promotes the involvement of women in the construction of Habitat houses
- Youth Programs - encourages youth involvement with the affordable housing crisis, individually or collectively through our Campus Chapter program
- ReStores - building supply stores that accept and resell quality new and used building materials, generating funds to support Habitat's building programs, and helping the environment by reducing the amount of used materials that are headed for overflowing landfills
Nature of Work
- You can volunteer with any of the above programs, or with one of our affiliates.
- Volunteering on a house-build does not require previous experience.

Time frame is varied
No specific requirements
