What is happening in Canada during Carter Work Project?

This summer, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn will be in Canada for Habitat for Humanity’s 34th Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project. The goal is to help build 150 homes for Canada’s 150th anniversary – Habitat Canada’s biggest build project ever! The Carter’s will be focusing their efforts in Edmonton and Winnipeg, but the Carter Work Project will be a Canada-wide effort, with over 50 communities in every province and territory helping us reach our goal of building 150 homes.

The 2017 Carter Work Project will be held at sites across Canada July 9-14, 2017. The two main build sites will be hosted by Habitat Edmonton in Alberta and Habitat Manitoba in Winnipeg. President and Mrs. Carter and hundreds of volunteers will help 150 families across Canada, including Indigenous families, access affordable homeownership. Here at Habitat Heartland we are building 4 homes – two in St Thomas and two in London – during the Carter Work Project.

By volunteering your time or donating to the Carter Work Project, you can help build a more caring Canada – where neighbours help neighbours build homes that provide a safe and affordable foundation for a better life.
