About Habitat for Humanity Iqaluit:

Habitat for Humanity Iqaluit (HFHIQ) became an affiliate of Habitat for Humanity Canada in 2005. The charity helps people in the North, who cannot afford a down payment due to high housing costs, access safe and affordable housing. Like all Habitat for Humanity affiliates, HFHIQ’s mission is to mobilize volunteers and community partners in building affordable housing, and it promotes homeownership as a means to breaking the poverty cycle. HFHIQ states that 49% of houses are below housing standards in Nunavut, meaning they are either inadequate or overcrowded.

Habitat for Humanity Iqaluit’s sole activity appears to be Habitat for Humanity’s keystone homebuilding program. Qualifying families must fall below the poverty line but their income must be stable and sufficient enough to cover monthly Habitat mortgage payments. Families must also contribute 500 hours of volunteer labor, or ‘sweat hours,’ into building their Habitat home.

In 2010, Habitat for Humanity Iqaluit created Vision 2020, a new strategic plan with the goal of building 10 Habitat homes by 2020. The charity built its first Habitat home in 2007, its second in 2009, and also reports a build rate of one home every two years. HFHIQ aims to mobilize 1,000 volunteers by 2020 to help with its homebuilding activities.
