Our Habitat Build Campaign

Secure Capital believes now is the time to make a difference in our city. Join your industry peers and partner with us to make Toronto a safe and decent place for everyone to live. No one deserves to live in substandard conditions. Help us give low-income families the hand up they deserve.

Our campaign initiative donations go directly into buying and servicing the land and pur- chasing the building materials Habitat uses to build simple decent affordable homes. To- gether with donations made by other members of our corporate community add up. To date, combined donations from our industry have reached $200,000, making the dream of home ownership a reality for two Toronto families since 2010.

Secure Capital and our partners have done so much together, but we have the capacity to do so much more. For more information or to make a donation, please click here.
