TORONTO — Habitat for Humanity Grey Bruce has been honoured as an Expanded Impact winner by Habitat for Humanity Canada as the national housing agency announced 12 local Habitat programs for exceptional achievement in providing housing in 2023.

The national honourees were announced May 14. In addition, Habitat for Humanity Northwest Territories’ board chair Dave Hurley and Habitat for Humanity Southern Alberta’s CEO Gerrad Oishi both received the Terry Petkau Legacy Award for long-time leadership and record of accomplishments.

In 2023 Habitat for Humanity Grey Bruce partnered with 12 families, a 200 per cent increase in families served; assisted 34 families through its ReStore Community Services program; and supported 77 Saugeen Ojibway Nation members with home renovations.

“Congratulations to this year’s award winners,” said Julia Deans, CEO of Habitat for Humanity Canada, in a statement. “These awards highlight the exceptional work of local Habitats at a time when innovation, partnerships and leadership are critical to responding to Canada’s housing crisis, and to helping us fulfill Habitat for Humanity’s vision and mission in Canada and around the world.”
