Nis­san Canada Foun­da­tion backs Habi­tat

The Hamilton Spectator - - WHEELS.CA -

The Nis­san Canada Foun­da­tion will be part of Habi­tat for Hu­man­ity Canada’s big­gest build project ever, the 34th Jimmy & Ros­alynn Carter Work Project.

Tak­ing place in ev­ery prov­ince and ter­ri­tory across Canada, the Nis­san Canada Foun­da­tion will sup­port Habi­tat for Hu­man­ity in its goal to col­lec­tively build 150 homes to mark Canada’s 150th an­niver­sary of Con­fed­er­a­tion.

Former U.S. Pres­i­dent Jimmy Carter and his wife Ros­alynn will be vis­it­ing Canada from July 9-14, 2017, fo­cus­ing their ef­forts in Ed­mon­ton, Al­berta, and in Win­nipeg, Man­i­toba.

In ad­di­tion to sup­port­ing the 2017 Jimmy & Ros­alynn Carter Work Project, the Nis­san Canada Foun­da­tion is also work­ing with Habi­tat for Hu­man­ity Hal­ton-Mis­sis­sauga, and is a ti­tle home spon­sor for a project in Mal­ton, On­tario, where a com­plex of town homes will be built. The Foun­da­tion’s do­na­tion of a new 2017 NV Pas­sen­ger Van helped Habi­tat Hal­ton-Mis­sis­sauga to launch its ‘Vol­un­teer Shut­tle Pro­gram’.

This pro­gram will in­crease their abil­ity to build homes by re­mov­ing bar­ri­ers for re­cruit­ing and wel­com­ing more vol­un­teers.

Habi­tat for Hu­man­ity Canada has a long his­tory of cre­at­ing af­ford­able hous­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties in the coun­try. Peo­ple liv­ing in Habi­tat homes not only help to build their own houses, they also pay af­ford­able mort­gages.

Habi­tat’s in­no­va­tive ap­proach helps work­ing fam­i­lies on a new path to bet­ter, af­ford­able liv­ing con­di­tions that lead to im­proved health and stronger child­hood de­vel­op­ment, as well as a de­crease in reliance on food banks.

Nis­san Canada–through the Nis­san Canada Foun­da­tion–will pro­vide vol­un­teer sup­port and spon­sor­ship at the “Sil­ver” level for the 2017 Jimmy & Ros­alynn Carter Work Project, mark­ing 10 years of part­ner­ship with Habi­tat for Hu­man­ity in Canada.
