We rely on our volunteers. Raising walls on our build sites, accepting donations at our ReStores, sharing expertise on our boards and committees – we simply could not do what we do without them.
Consider volunteering your time with Habitat. No construction experience is required and often our volunteers feel just as impacted by the experience as the families they set out to help.

Travel domestically with Canada Builds
Canada Builds offers you the opportunity to travel within Canada and contribute to unique Habitat build projects ongoing in places like the Yukon, fire-affected Slave Lake, Prince Edward Island and within Aboriginal communities. Take in the distinct culture that these regions have to offer while having a significant impact on the lives of a Canadian family.
Engage Your Workplace
Since Habitat was founded, workplaces have come together on build sites to give back to the communities where they work and build a stronger team while fulfilling their commitment to social corporate responsibility.
Across Canada, there are hundreds of Habitat projects ongoing each year, meaning that there’s likely a project ongoing near you. To get your team involved, contact your nearest Habitat affiliate.
Engage Your Faith Group
Everyone can use the hammer as an instrument to manifest their faith. Habitat founder Millard Fuller calls this concept "the theology of the hammer," explaining, "we may disagree on all sorts of other things... but we can agree on the idea of building homes with God's people in need, and… doing so… [at] no profit and no interest."
