Habitat for Humanity Greater Toronto Area - Brampton, Caledon, Durham Region, Toronto & York Region


Year in Review

Everyone has the right to a quality home. Not only is it part of our vision, but it’s also a part of the fabric of Canadian society; the principle that anyone can work hard, have a home where they want to be that meets their needs, and live a good life.


Tragically, for those living in the GTA, the cost of putting a roof over your head is far beyond what most people with decent jobs can afford.


Rent is now a whopping $3,400 for a two-bedroom apartment in Toronto.


It takes Torontonians earning the median annual income 25 years to save for a downpayment for a home.


And 60% of residents in the GTA worry about sacrificing their basic needs – like food, clothing, living essentials, and education – to afford rent or mortgage payments.


For all these reasons, we at Habitat for Humanity GTA are working harder than ever before to be the affordable housing provider our cities need, and be a part of the solution to the housing affordability crisis.


See for yourself everything we’ve accomplished working together alongside volunteers, donors, builders, government partners – and everyday people – all of us united behind the idea that together, we can create a more affordable and equitable GTA for all.

The Housing Affordability Crisis

  • $3,400/month is the rent for an average two-bedroom apartment in Toronto
  • It takes 25 years to save a downpayment for Torontonians earning the median income
  • 60% of residents in the GTA skip basic needs to afford rent or mortgage payments

Gearing Up for 2024

We are on track to deliver affordable homes to 55 families that include dozens of children across the GTA:

  • 485 Normandy Drive in Oshawa – 21 homes
  • 423 Old Weston Road in Toronto – 20 homes
  • 500 Wilson Avenue – 10 homes
  • And 4 homes in locations in Toronto and Brampton

At the same time, our construction teams, volunteers and staff will be busy as work begins on two new communities to provide homes to 27 families in Brampton.


Combined with dozens of other homes already in our pipeline for the future, we at Habitat for Humanity GTA are on an ambitious path to build more homes in the next five years than in the previous ten.

Join the Movement

We see the housing affordability crisis as our era's most pressing challenge, but we are filled with optimism. Together, we can make a difference. Here’s how you can be a part of this transformative journey:
