Global Engagement

2020 marked the

15-year anniversary of

Habitat Canada’s Global

Village program. 

Our global engagement work is designed to empower families to build strength, stability and self reliance through shelter solutions.


The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on all of us and there continues to be tremendous uncertainty about what the future holds.

The current realities of the pandemic, including the multiple variant identification, challenging vaccine distribution and availability, as well as travel restrictions, all impact the ability to resume our Global Village work safely and effectively. Therefore, all Global Village builds managed by Habitat for Humanity Canada, were suspended in 2020.

We are committed to continuing our global engagement work, supporting local Habitats both at home and abroad so that they can continue to build safe and affordable homes.
