Volunteer opportunities

Join the thousands of Canadians who volunteer with us each year! Whether they’re lending a hand on a local build site, supporting the operations of a Habitat ReStore or embarking on a Global Village trip, our volunteers are an integral part of our organization, helping us fulfill our vision of a world where everyone has a decent, affordable place to live.

Volunteer in your community 

With the help of volunteers and future homeowners, local Habitats undertake hundreds of home-building projects across Canada each year. If you sign up to volunteer on one of Habitat’s build sites, you’ll be provided with all of the equipment and training you need to build under the supervision of an experienced crew leader — no prior build experience required. Volunteer opportunities are also available at Habitat’s ReStores, which help build more homes in the local community. If you’d like to volunteer on a Habitat build site or at a ReStore in your community, please contact your local Habitat to learn more.

Volunteer abroad

Habitat for Humanity Canada Global Village is an international volunteer program that sends Canadians around the world and across Canada to build alongside local families in need of a safe, decent place to live. Join the thousands of volunteers who participate in this life-changing experience each year. It’s the perfect opportunity to gain a greater understanding of housing and development issues in other countries, to learn more about another culture and about yourself.

Corporate team building 

No other team-building experience can provide the same level of employee engagement, connection to the cause and community impact that a Habitat Build Day can offer. Habitat team-building opportunities are more than just a great way to showcase your organization’s social responsibility — they can help to attract new talent, retain valuable employees and improve workplace culture.
