Enercare Inc. (Enercare), one of Canada’s largest home and commercial services companies, recently announced a new Sustainable Homes Partnership with Habitat for Humanity Canada.

Enercare’s ambition is to help lead Canada’s green transition by reducing emissions from homes and buildings and this partnership aims to “empower action for a greener tomorrow.” 

“We are on a sustainability journey to enable more equitable access to solutions that help lower emission in the places people live, work and play,” said Enercare’s president and CEO, Nick Perreten. “Partnering with Habitat for Humanity Canada will allow us to do just that. And, importantly, working with Habitat Canada will give us an opportunity to live our purpose and values.”

Enercare is currently the largest funder of Habitat Canada’s Sustainability Grants program, which is an initiative that supports the upfront investment needed to build more affordable and energy-efficient homes in communities across Canada.

A former Habitat for Humanity project, Quebec’s InnovHaus, was calculated to have reduced utility costs up to 90 per cent. The partnership will support a total of 17 sustainability grants and various new builds by 2026.

“We know that affordable and energy efficient homes are key to helping people and communities thrive and become more resilient,” said Perreten. “We want to play our part in that solution, building on our other efforts such as installing more energy-efficient options, such as heat pumps. Stable housing is fundamental to social well-being.”

Along with building more homes for families, Enercare is also working with Habitat for Humanity to build more sustainably to ensure that these homes remain affordable for families in the future.

“Building homes is at the heart of what we do, but building sustainable futures is our shared vision,” said Julia Deans, Habitat for Humanity Canada president and CEO. “With Enercare’s support, we’re expanding the number of homes we build with an enhanced focus on sustainability and elevating the quality and longevity of each one. This partnership exemplifies our mutual commitment to a green, inclusive future, where every family has a sustainable home to nurture their dreams.”
