how it works
No construction experience or gear required!
We take care of it all, from registration to tool belts. The team building starts when you arrive on a Habitat for Humanity GTA build site. Participants get the opportunity to learn new skills together, work in collaborative groups to complete building tasks and accomplish something meaningful for their community as a cohesive team.
Your team’s safety is our first priority. All participants are suited up with complete safety gear, trained and led through a variety of construction tasks, while working together with colleagues in a safe and fun environment.

This experience offered me an opportunity to work with my team and get to know them better and bond in a different way. As walls were put up, trust was built, connecting the team in many different aspects.

community and faith group builds
Interested in building as a non-profit community or faith group of 5 or more? We welcome you to build with us. In doing so, your group can directly help working, low-income families to escape substandard living conditions, gain stability and improve their lives, through building an affordable home.
help us raise funds
Habitat for Humanity GTA relies on the generosity of our supporters to fund the construction of our homes. We encourage volunteer groups to set a fundraising goal of $100 per person.
