Celebrate Giving Tuesday with Habitat NCR!

Today is Canada's first annual GivingTuesday.
It is a new Canadian movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after CyberMonday. It's a day when charities, individuals, families and companies will join together to rally for causes, give back and think of others. 
Celebrate GivingTuesday today with a Habitat Gift from the Heart. These unique gifts will help us fulfill our mission of providing safe, decent and affordable housing for hard-working, low-income families in the National Capital Region who are trying to break the cycle of poverty. Together, we are giving a hand up, not a hand out.
You simply select an item from our Donation Wish List and order it by calling us at 613-749-9950 ext. 233 or
We will send you a receipt and a free greeting card so you can let a loved one know that a Habitat Gift from the Heart has been given in their name.
Learn how your support of Habitat for Humanity NCR can make the dream of homeownership come true for families in our community. Last week the Kakekagumick family celebrated their new home in Orleans at the Habitat NCR Dedication Ceremony. Click here to watch the video.

Dedication Ceremony for Habitat NCR's Urban Aboriginal Build.

We were pleased to welcome the Kakekagumick family to their new home on Friday, November 29. More than 85 people attended the moving ceremony, which included a free delicious BBQ sponsored by Enbridge. Habitat NCR sponsors, donors, suppliers, tradespeople, volunteers, neighbours, family and friends came together to celebrate this new start for the family of four in their Nantes Street home. The event included speeches, gift presentations and a special drum ceremony. Thanks to everyone who helped make this new home a reality for Ida, Gage, Erica and Donovan. (Photos by Cynthia Herman)
