Habitat for Humanity Heartland Ontario helps eligible low-income families build and buy simple, decent quality affordable homes through a no-interest mortgage with payments set at approximately 25 percent of gross income. This solution not only helps to provide affordable housing for families in need, it enables low-income families to build assets, reduce their dependence on other forms of social assistance and build strength, stability and self-reliance.  We invite you to join us. By working together, we can build great things. Get involved today by contacting us at: info@habitat4home.ca

Families who feel they may qualify for a Habitat home must complete the simple eligibility quiz (by clicking the green button below) to determine if they should go forward with the full application process.

Step 1: Complete the Eligibility Quiz

These questions will help you to determine whether or not your family currently qualifies for our home ownership program.  If so, you will be asked for some contact information in order to set up an appointment to meet with our Family Services Coordinator to complete an Expression of Interest form.  If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at:  familyservices@habitat4home.ca or call 519 455 6623 ext 214.

Step 2: Complete a Full Application

Families who successfully complete the Expression of Interest will be informed that their information will be held until an opportunity for home ownership becomes available in their area.  At that time they will receive a copy of the full application along with a list of support documents needed.  Within 30 days they will meet with the Family Services Coordinator to discuss their application and ask any questions they may have about it.  If everything is complete and ready, the application will be accepted at the meeting.  If there are still some details required the family will be given a further 30 days to complete the application and submit it to Habitat.

  • Recommend approval/deferral of applicant to the CEO of Habitat for Humanity Heartland
