Allegion Canada will be part of Habitat for Humanity Canada’s largest build project to date – the 34thJimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project, which will be taking place in every province and territory across Canada with the goal of collectively building 150 homes to mark Canada’s 150th anniversary. In addition to supporting Habitat Canada’s Carter Work Project with volunteers, Allegion Canada has donated enough locks for all 150 homes.
“Allegion Canada is proud to support Habitat Canada’s work,” said Mark Wilson, general manager of Allegion Canada. “We believe that everyone in Canada has the right to a safe and affordable place to live, and our staff is thrilled to give back to the community in a strong and meaningful way.”
Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, will be visiting Canada to participate in the build from July 9-14, 2017, focusing their efforts in Edmonton, Alberta, and in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Since 1984, President and Mrs. Carter have traveled around the world with Habitat for Humanity to build and improve homes. Their time and effort helps to raise awareness of the critical need for affordable home ownership around the world. Inspiring millions over the last three decades, President and Mrs. Carter have worked alongside nearly 100,000 volunteers in 14 countries to build, renovate and repair more than 4,000 homes.
