Toronto – November 28, 2022 – Starlight Investments is pleased to announce a multi- year partnership with Habitat for Humanity Canada, one of the country’s leading non- profits providing those in need with opportunities for affordable homeownership. Through this partnership, Starlight will help Habitat build much-needed housing in partnership with Indigenous families in Ontario and across the country through support of Habitat Canada’s Indigenous Housing Partnership
“At Starlight we are passionate about building stronger communities. Access to safe and reliable homes is paramount to ensuring a brighter future for communities across Canada. We look forward to working with Habitat Canada and seeing the incredible work our teams will accomplish over these next few years together,” said Chief People Officer, Lauren Kenney.
As part of the partnership, Starlight team members will work alongside volunteers to help physically build safe, affordable housing for Indigenous families. While Starlight employees will play an active role in building these homes around the Greater Toronto
Area (GTA), this partnership will also support Indigenous housing nationally. In addition to building and repairing houses for Indigenous families, Habitat Canada’s Indigenous Housing Partnership also aims to equip Indigenous youth with valuable trade skills that will continue to benefit their community and their future.
“The Indigenous Housing Partnership is an equitable partnership rooted in respect for Indigenous culture, helping deliver housing solutions by Indigenous communities and for Indigenous communities. We are so grateful to see Starlight Investments’ dedication to safe and affordable housing, and support of Indigenous families across Canada,” said Jennifer Hearn, Vice President, Resource Development, Habitat for Humanity Canada
One in every five Indigenous peoples in Canada live in a home that needs major repairs, three times higher than their non-Indigenous counterparts in Canada. As one of the country’s leading rental housing providers, dedicated to having a positive impact in the communities we serve, this partnership was an ideal fit for Starlight. We look forward to continuing to support Habitat Canada in their work across the country. To learn more about Habitat Canada or donate to the cause, visit: habitat.ca.
