|THE 2017 CARTER WORK PROJECT|
Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn will be in Canada in 2017 for Habitat for Humanity’s 34th Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project to help build 150 homes for Canada’s 150th anniversary – Habitat Canada’s biggest build project ever!
Everyone in Canada has the right to a safe, affordable and decent place to live in and yet so many families do not have that. By supporting the Carter Work Project, Canadians can help build a more caring nation through volunteering – where neighbours help neighbours build homes that provide a safe and affordable foundation for a better life.
President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn will be focusing their efforts in Edmonton, Alberta and Winnipeg, Manitoba but the Carter Work Project will be a country-wide effort, with over 40 communities in every province and territory in Canada helping us reach our goal of building 150 homes.

Your personal or corporate sponsorship of the 2017 Carter Work Project will help bring strength, stability and self-reliance to families in need of a safe and decent place to live. Mark Canada’s 150th anniversary by helping make homeownership affordable for 150 Canadian families. Your sponsorship makes a difference.
Sponsorship of the Carter Work Project offers an opportunity like no other:
- An unparalleled team-building experience — your employees, clients, partners, family members or other stakeholders will help build homes in partnership with future Habitat homeowners in your community.
- Valuable marketing and promotional opportunities for your brand.
- Alignment with a high-profile international event and a widely respected non-profit brand.
- Participation in Habitat for Humanity’s 40-year-old global movement.
It takes the incredible commitment of sponsors, donors and community partners alike to make this project possible. We thank the early supporters of the 34th Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project for their commitment to 150 families across Canada.
