AFFORDABLE HOUSING THAT BENEFITS THE WIDER COMMUNITY
SFI and our Implementation Committee partners work with both Habitat for Humanity International and Habitat for Humanity Canada to improve quality of life, raise awareness of sustainable forestry, and encourage green building using products certified to SFI.
SFI Inc. and SFI Implementation Committees have partnered with Habitat for Humanity, since 2008. The SFI community has donated countless volunteer hours and certified products to more than a dozen Habitat for Humanity builds across Canada and the U.S.
A Memorandum of Mutual Support
In 2014, SFI and Habitat for Humanity Canada signed a memorandum of mutual support known as Wood 4 Good. This program encourages local home building through SFI’s grassroots network, increases awareness of sourcing wood products certified to the SFI standards, and helps make supply chains more efficient. The partnership also works to encourage collaborative solutions to support Indigenous housing in Canada
