Carter Work Project



On World Habitat Day, Habitat for Humanity Canada announced its biggest building project ever as part of the 34th Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project in July, 2017.

Former US President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn will be in Edmonton and Winnipeg from July 9-14, 2017 to help build homes alongside thousands of volunteers and future Habitat homeowners.

The Carter Work Project will be taking place across Canada in every province and territory with over 40 communities collectively building 150 homes to mark Canada’s 150th anniversary!

Habitat Kamloops is partnering with Habitat for Humanity Canada, Habitat for Humanity International and the Carters to help bring this project to Canada by committing to build homes to reach the goal of 150 homes. Thousands of volunteers will be helping to build a alongside future Habitat homeowners right across the country. Habitat Kamloops is excited to be a part of this Canada-Wide project to bring affordable home ownership to more families in need. These are homes that provide families with the strength, stability and independence they need to build a better life.

People living in Habitat homes not only help to build their own houses, they also pay affordable mortgages. Habitat for Humanity’s innovative approach helps working families with on a new path to better, affordable living conditions that lead to improved health and stronger childhood development. Access to affordable home ownership can help decrease a family’s reliance on food banks and allow them to move out of social housing which frees up space for those on waiting lists.

Habitat Kamloops will begin building a duplex that will be a part of the Carter work Project in early 2017.
