Toronto office takes part in Habitat for Humanity

Twenty people from the Toronto office put on hard hats and boots and volunteered with Habitat for Humanity Greater Toronto Area in July.

The volunteers helped with the largest residential development constructed in Habitat history: three townhouses with a total of 50 units of affordable housing for low income families.

In the same week, over 150 homes were built around Canada as part of Habitat for Humanity’s 34th Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project.

Dominic Channer, Vice-President, Community Relations, was a member of the construction team:

“At Kinross we contribute to positive outcomes in host communities around our mine sites and promote employee engagement in community life. This includes Toronto, our home community, where we had the good fortune to be approached by Habitat for Humanity. It was a really rewarding day with a great group of people and a lot of fun!”
