What is a Habitat Build Day?
This one-of-a-kind employee engagement opportunity offers your company the chance to build your team, your brand and your community!
Book your Habitat Build Day and give your corporate team a unique opportunity to connect outside the office and spend the day on a Habitat build site, working together to help build Habitat homes alongside families in need of affordable housing. Whether your team wants to build walls, help with clean up or do landscaping, we have tons of engaging opportunities year-round!

- Engage employees in a meaningful, cost-effective experience
- Provide a fun, interactive way for employees to connect outside the office and recharge while giving back
- Align your company with a globally recognized charity

how it works
No construction experience or gear required! We take care of it all, from registration to tool belts and steel toes. The team building starts when you arrive on a Habitat Greater Ottawa build site. Your team will spend the day learning new skills together, working in collaborative groups to complete building tasks. At the end of the day, you’ll have accomplished something meaningful for your community as a cohesive team.
With a lot of help from our friends!
