Fiera Real Estate Partners with Habitat for Humanity for a second time
As members of the community in which we operate, at Fiera Real Estate (“FRE”), we recognize our responsibility to create value for local organizations and groups. Therefore, FRE has decided to partner with Habitat for Humanity GTA for the second consecutive year by donating $25,000 and committing volunteer hours to Habitat build projects in the Greater Toronto Area. This initiative is part of our responsibility to generate a positive impact for our planet, employees, and communities. It is built into our personal development mandate to encourage our employees to consider their roles in the community and take up to a full paid day to volunteer at a local organization.
On August 31 and October 26, 2023, FRE participated in its second and third Habitat Build Days where 12 volunteers from the Toronto team gathered for the construction of 423 Old Weston Road. For this project, Habitat GTA will be building 20 stacked townhomes alongside volunteers on a subdivision of the developer’s land. These homes will be within walking distance to grocery stores, big box stores, boutiques, restaurants, cafes, banks, and family-friendly entertainment. Anticipated occupancy for qualified families is by the end of the year 2023.
Through this partnership, we strive to support Habitat for Humanity Canada’s mission to bring communities together to help build strength, stability, and independence through affordable homeownership. Habitat for Humanity Canada’s model of affordable homeownership bridges a gap for low-income, working families by providing them with the opportunity to purchase their own homes. Moreover, the materials used to build the Habitats come from Habitat for Humanity ReStores, building supply stores that accept and resell quality new and used materials – a socially responsible and environmentally conscious option.
