If you watch home renovation shows, you probably recognize Scott McGillivray, the host (and executive producer) of HGTV’s Income Property. Starting this Sunday, September 25 you can watch Scott and his family on the premiere of his new show, Moving the McGillivrays – a show with a Habitat for Humanity twist.

Moving the McGillivrays follows Scott, his wife and two children as they build their dream home. Dreams come in all shapes and sizes though, and Scott is committed to making the dreams of affordable home ownership also come true for one Habitat family. Moving the McGillvrays sees Scott partner with Habitat for Humanity Greater Toronto Area and future homeowners, to help a family build their own safe, decent and affordable Habitat home. Watch the video to the right to find out why Scott supports Habitat.


Habitat homeowners pay an interest-free mortgage and Habitat families work alongside volunteers to put in 500 hours of ‘sweat equity’ to help build their own home.

If you have ever been curious about what goes in to building a Habitat home, now is your chance to find out. Watch Moving the McGillivrays, starting Sunday, September 25 at 9 p.m. ET on HGTV.
