Looking to own your first home?

The Habitat homeownership model helps working, lower-income families realize their dream of owning a home. Habitat homeowners spend no more than 32% of household income on housing, which provides stability and the chance to build a secure future for themselves and their children. We provide families with the coaching, education and support to be successful first-time homeowners.

We build homes and partner with developers to make Habitat units available in townhouse developments and high-rise and mid-rise condo buildings across the GTA. Fill out our eligibility questionnaire today to find out if your family qualifies for a Habitat home.
