15 new affordable housing units are coming to Kemptville courtesy of Habitat for Humanity, and residents are being asked to help with the construction.

The new project, called “Kemptville Korners,” is a collaboration between the Greater Ottawa and Thousand Islands branches of the nonprofit organization. 

The Municipality of North Grenville, home design company eQ Homes, and Grenville Mutual Insurance are also contributing to the new development.

The Greater Ottawa branch’s Senior Manager of Development and Communications, Sandra Oey, says work is already underway on the housing units, which are being built near the Kemptville Campus.

“Through the generous support of Grenville Mutual Insurance and eQ Homes, Kemptville Korners will be completed over the next two years,” Oey says. 

“During that time, Habitat will be reaching out to potential sponsors, donors and other supporters in the community to help ensure completion of the development.”

Mayor Nancy Peckford says she’s also excited for the project.

“This development will provide pathways to affordable and well-built homes for 15 hard-working families who would otherwise not be able to purchase one in our community,” she says.

If you’re interested in volunteering to help with the construction, visit Habitat for Humanity Greater Ottawa’s website. You can also apply to live in one of the homes on the organization’s website.
