An affiliate of Habitat for Humanity Canada, Habitat for Humanity Iqaluit is a community-based, non-profit organization, whose goal is to improve housing conditions for people who are gainfully employed but are unable to afford a down payment due to the cost of housing in the North. Through charitable donations from individuals, governments and local business and organizations, as well as volunteer labour, Habitat for Humanity Iqaluit builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses with the help of partner families. Habitat homes are sold to partner families with no down payment required and are financed with affordable, no-interest mortgages. This program provides stability and independence for families in the community through affordable homeownership.

NCC supports Habitat for Humanity Iqaluit by assisting with the building and maintenance of Habitat homes, helping with fundraising activities and providing financial support.
