What We’re Working On
With the help of our partners and supporters, we’ve scaled up our builds, and are now developing entire communities. We’ve started in Guelph with Cityview Village, and are in the final stages of purchasing property in Orangeville.

Cityview Village is a vibrant and connected community comprised of three stone-and-brick buildings, all with energy efficient designs and features. Each three-story building will contain 8 to 12 ownership condominium units (one, two and three bedroom suites), offering affordable home-ownership to 30 individuals and families in our community.

Dufferin Build – Orangeville, Ontario
Approximately 10% of Dufferin County is living in poverty, and one in every nine households are living in core housing need. Amid rising house prices and the challenge of scarce land for development, the need for affordable housing in our community is becoming ever more urgent.
After an extensive property search in Dufferin County, Habitat WDG will be finalizing the purchase of property on Broadway in Orangeville in March 2018 on which preliminary plans call for the building of six affordable homes for families. Construction will commence this fall. Two other properties are currently under negotiation which may allow for further construction in 2019 and beyond.
This is an important milestone in Habitat’s continuing commitment to building a world where everyone has a safe, decent and affordable place to call home, including low-income families.
