We look forward to further supporting the Habitat Canada’s plans for continued construction of new homes with in kind donations of locks and hardware. We will volunteer time and material as required to benefit their building sites all across Canada.” Habitat Canada has a long history of creating affordable housing opportunities in the country. People living in Habitat homes not only help build their own houses, they also pay affordable mortgages to own their homes. Habitat for Humanity brings communities together to help families build strength, stability and independence through affordable homeownership. With the help of volunteers, Habitat homeowners and 56 local Habitats working in every province and territory provide a solid foundation for better, healthier lives in Canada and around the world.
