Habitat For Humanity's 34th Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project will take place July 9-14, 2017 in Canada.

Volunteers will work alongside future Habitat homeowners and build 150 homes in celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary. The project will take place in several cities across the country, with President and Mrs. Carter focusing their efforts in Edmonton, Alberta, and in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

“It is an honor to host President and Mrs. Carter. We are grateful for their support and the many volunteers whose commitment to Habitat’s mission has helped us empower communities through affordable homeownership,” said Mark Rodgers, President and CEO of Habitat for Humanity Canada. “These are homes that provide families with the strength, stability and independence they need to build a better life.”

Since 1984, President and Mrs. Carter have traveled around the world with Habitat, donating their time and voices annually to build and improve homes and raise awareness of the critical need for decent and affordable housing. Inspiring millions over the last three decades, President and Mrs. Carter have worked alongside nearly 100,000 volunteers in 14 countries to build, renovate and repair more than 4,000 homes.

“We are grateful for the support of President and Mrs. Carter and the many volunteers whose commitment to Habitat’s mission has helped us make a long-lasting, tangible difference to empower communities through shelter,” said Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity International.

Habitat would like to thank the early supporters of the 34th Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project, including Cossette and the Tachane Foundation Inc. There are still sponsorship opportunities available. For more information on how to get involved, visit habitat.ca/cwp.
