Habitat for Humanity
EFC has partnered with Habitat Canada as its Charity of Choice
Like Habitat Canada, EFC strongly believes that everyone deserves a safe and affordable place to call home. Habitat Canada knows affordable home ownership empowers Canadian families with a sense of pride and independence. A number of EFC members are strong supporters of Habitat Canada. Many member companies not only contribute financially, but also provide product and volunteer support to Habitat affiliates across Canada. View the 2019 Habitat Impact Report here. EFC is a Platinum Sponsor! Read the full story here
There’s never been a better time to support this important cause. You can lend your support in three ways: Financial, Product Contribution for Home Builds or Product Contribution for ReStore.
1. Product Donations
Donate gift-in-kind products that will go directly into our Habitat homes. Electrical products are in high demand and are a large expense for local Habitats. Electrical products such as loadcentres, circuit breakers, and wiring are a large expense for local Habitats.

2. Cash Donations
Your team can have their own Habitat Build Day or you can pool funds with other EFC members in your area and participate together. See below for more details on EFC’s Team Building Opportunity with Habitat.
3. ReStore Donations
Discontinued product or product not required for building a home can go to ReStores. All proceeds go back to the local Habitat and help build more homes.
A note about product donations: Habitat’s Restores are always in need of quality products and will accept donations of overstocked or discontinued items. Individual and corporate donations to the 100+ ReStore locations across Canada help divert more than 36,000 tons of material from landfills and fund Habitat for Humanity housing projects in local communities!

EFC Team Building Opportunity with Habitat
Just like future Habitat homeowners do prior to purchasing their Habitat home, your team members will come together on a Habitat build site, roll up their sleeves and work together to help build a safe, decent, and affordable place that a family in need will one day call home.
The total cash fee for the build day is $10K, for up to 20 people and multiple companies can pool funds and send staff based on their contribution.
