Build Days

Get ready for a truly rewarding experience

Habitat for Humanity Canada’s team building opportunities offer organizations a chance to invest in their employees while making a real difference in the lives of hard-working families and the communities in which they live. Just like future Habitat homeowners do prior to purchasing their Habitat home, your team members will come together on a Habitat build site, roll up their sleeves and work together to help build a safe, decent, and affordable place that a family in need will one day call home. Habitat’s team building opportunities are an experience like no other. When your team arrives on the build site, their job titles will disappear. Employees of all skill levels – beginner to professional – will learn useful skills as they work side-by-side in a safe environment under the leadership of experienced Habitat crew leaders. While the work will be challenging, it will also be rewarding. Together, your team will have fun, connect with their fellow colleagues in a truly meaningful way, and leave the build site proud of their accomplishments, their colleagues, and their organization.

We created these options so that you can build a better workplace culture while giving back to your community.


When your group or organization participates in one of our team building pportunities, everyone wins. Your colleagues will roll up their sleeves, and join forces toward a common goal. They will be inspired to work together while learning new skills. At the same time, your organization is demonstrating its commitment to improving the community and championing the cause of affordable homeownership.


Habitat Build Days offer the quintessential Habitat experience. When your  team participates in a Habitat Build Day, they’re helping to build a home at one of our many Habitat build sites across the country.While building your team, you’re building a stronger community.
