Women build – Every woman counts!
Are you looking for a personal challenge this year? Are you someone who loves a good challenge and gets things done? Join a program exclusively reserved for women!
Come meet us on the construction sites and lets build together! Help us lend a helping hand to low-income Quebec families to build their future, stability and independence, and at the same time let’s celebrate the huge impact of women on the community development and their significant contribution in a profession, traditionally dominated by men.
Who are the women builders?
These are women inspired by the focus of the program and the mission of Habitat for Humanity Quebec, united in a remarkable social movement. They are strong, active and committed to the challenges that low-income families face. They know how to engage with others to spread the message of the “Women build 2018” program.

Last Friday, February 10th, the New Frontier School Board delivered the four modules of the house built by its students for Habitat for Humanity Quebec. In a small ceremony, the people present saw the spectacular show of a house arriving by truck and being put in place by a crane!
Now, it’s up to Habitat Quebec to finish the work so two low-income families can move in 2017 and start a new life!
We thank our partners New Frontiers School Board, the Châteauguay Valley Careed Education Centre, the Town of Ormstown and EcoHabitation, who together made this project happen, and also Bain Magique, CRH Canada, Roxul, Priest Construction et Électricité, Convectair, Crête Excavation, Delta Cosella-Dörken Products, Finition EPR Béton inc.and Bourcier portes et fenêtres.
On October 20, 2016, Lucie, Maurice and her five children received the keys to their new home in St-Henri, Montreal. Beyond Habitat for Humanity Quebec’s partners for the project, including Arcelor Mittal, CRH and Maison Bonneville, were present the representative of the borough of the South-West borough, David Pagé, as well as several of the volunteers who worked in the project, including a representative of the “Les Bâtisseuses” project.
Habitat for Humanity Quebec thanks its partners and volunteers, and wishes the family of Lucie and Maurice an excellent life in their new home!
