Our New Build in Carleton Place is Underway!

Construction has begun at 121-123 Sarah Street in Carleton Place on our 39th and 40th Habitat NCR homes. This location will be home to nine children between the Shaver and the Crosley families and features Habitat firsts -- a pre-engineered double thanks to a partnership with Bonneville Homes, as well as hydronic in-floor heating supplied by the Canadian Institute of Plumbing and Heating (CIPH).
They are also our Platinum Hammer sponsors for one side of the double, now called CIPH House. Reid House is the other side, which is funded, thanks to Marilyn Vavasour, with proceeds from the sale of the "Gift Home" in 2010.
Special thanks to everyone who braved the heat at our Groundbreaking Ceremony on Monday, July 30, 2012. Please click here to watch a video of the event, which included many special guests, including the Mayor of Carleton Place, town councillors, our Platinum Hammer sponsors, our new partner families, neighbours and a number of our dedicated volunteers.

Would you like to join us? We are looking for new volunteers! Please click here to sign up or find out how you can be involved with Habitat NCR by calling Peggy at 613-749-9950 ext. 229 or e-mailing
