Building families a future in the GTA.

Our heart is in homebuilding. We build affordable homes for working families in need of better housing, and a hand-up to qualify for a mortgage. These families are put under incredible pressure to provide for their children due to housing affordability in the GTA.

Building strength, stability, and self-reliance

Habitat GTA creates homeownership opportunities that allow families to realize their potential and accomplish their dreams. Habitat families spend no more than 32% of household income on housing, which provides stability, and the chance to leave a legacy for the next generation.

who is eligible?

Families with at least one child at or under the age of 16 who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents living in the GTA can qualify for Habitat homeownership. Eligibility requirements include: living in need of better housing, willingness to partner and ability to make affordable mortgage payments. Our model of affordable homeownership is a hand up, not a hand out. Please review the program requirements to see if your family may be eligible for a Habitat home.
