On October 2nd, World Habitat Day, Electro-Federation Canada (EFC) members and their business partners united for the 3rd Annual EFC Day of Giving in support of Habitat for Humanity Canada. In 2022, thanks in part to the generosity of EFC members, Habitat Canada was able to serve more than 2,400 families and build 194 new homes.
EFC would like to thank all 2023 member participants who donated cash, obsolete inventory, and ReStore product to help provide more families with safe, decent, and affordable housing. Together, in 2023, we raised more than $472,000 that will help build strength, stability, and independence for families across Canada.
Thank you to our 2023 Day of Giving supporters!
Your support is helping to build a better world and brighter future through housing.
Habitat Canada is EFC's Charity of Choice
Like Habitat Canada, EFC strongly believes that everyone deserves a safe and affordable place to call home. Habitat Canada knows affordable homeownership 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.

Two Ways to Get Involved
Donations of cash and products from EFC members help support Habitat for Humanity Canada by offsetting building costs, allowing them to serve more families.
1. Product Donation
- Local Habitats need electrical products such as load centres, circuit breakers, and wiring. These products will help to ensure that Habitat is building with high quality materials and help offset construction costs. If you would like to make a product donation please reach out to Kathy Brett, Stewardship Specialist, GIK Donations, at 416-937-3077 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

- 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 1.1 billion pounds of material from landfills and fund Habitat housing projects. For more on ReStore, please contact Daryl Morrison, National ReStore GIK Manager, at (416) 624-1675 or email@example.com
2. Cash Donation
