Habitat for Humanity Québec is embarking on its first major fundraising campaign, the first phase of which aims to raise $2.5 million from all its partners and collaborators.

The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) indicates a need for 620,000 units for Québec by 2030 to restore housing affordability in the province. Habitat for Humanity Québec is part of the solution, enabling modest-income families to acquire a home with no down payment, an interest-free mortgage, and amortization periods tailored to their financial ability to meet the 30% threshold considered affordable. All this, thanks to the construction of housing units in collaboration with partners and donors.
