Builds 2016-2017

Cousineau Families

Cousineau Street Build
Thank you to everyone who helped make our four homes at 1277-1281 Cousineau St. in Orleans a reality over the past year. We are incredibly thank you for all of our sponsors, volunteers, donors, tradespeople and suppliers. We celebrated our Partner Families as they became first-time homeowners during the Key Ceremony in July 2016. Please click here to view photos from the ceremony.

Construction is now complete on our Carleton Place build at 204 Crampton Dr., which is in partnership with our new Carleton Place Chapter.

We are pleased to announce that Habitat GO has purchased its largest property to date at the corner of Jeanne d'Arc Boulevard and Fortune Drive in Orléans.

Construction has also begun in Perth on a single-family home in partnership with our new Perth Chapter and the Advanced Carpentry program at Algonquin College's Perth Campus.
