National Building Program
The National Building Program seeks to ensure that affiliates have access the products and support they need to be successful in building homes and building hope for Canadian families in need.
Purpose of the Program
In 2011, Habitat for Humanity’s Canadian affiliates built 227 homes with low-income families in need. With 69 affiliates dispersed across all 10 provinces and three territories, many generous donors supply materials for their building activity on an annual basis to their building activity. The National Building Program’s mandate is to ensure affiliates have access to the products and support they need to build homes and break the cycle of poverty for low-income Canadian families.
About the Program
The National Building Program provides guidance, administration and support services to affiliates with their product donation needs. Through the National Building Program, the donation of products is made easy for donors due to the centralization of the ordering process through Habitat for Humanity Canada’s National Build Products Coordinator.
History of the Program
Habitat for Humanity built their first house in Canada in Winkler, Manitoba in 1985. The National Building Program has supported all 69 Canadian affiliates with their builds and projects since its inception in 1990.
Where We Have Built
Nationwide, the National Building program has assisted with builds in ten provinces and three territories.
How You Can Help
