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 – Guelph, ON
We are now booking Team Build Days for 2019! Email Sharron@habitatwdg.ca to book, and visit here to learn more about the benefits of having your team on the construction site building homes and building community!
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 28 individuals and families in our community.

Dufferin Build – Orangeville, ON
Approximately 10 per cent 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.
In Dufferin, our local Habitat has embarked on a multi-residential affordable housing development, with an emphasis on the housing needs of families, seniors, victims of family violence and people with disabilities. We are also starting the renovation of 3 residential properties, which we will convert into 4 units of affordable housing.
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.
