Let's See What We Can Do

Always Affordable

At Habitat for Humanity Halton-Mississauga, we designed Habitat Handyman so that everyone could afford our renovation and home improvement services. We believe that everyone deserves a safe and decent place to live, and we're committed to fitting everyone's budget. If you are a low-income family or senior, we have created a reduced pricing program for you. Please refer to our program chart which outlines income thresholds for reduced pricing eligibility.

Reduced Pricing Stream Eligibility

Even if you don't meet the criteria for our low-income reduced pricing, we strive to provide our services at an affordable price to everyone. On average, our services tend to cost 30% less than our competitors.

NOTE
If you would like to take advantage of our affordable pricing stream, we require that you provide the previous year’s notice of tax assessment for each adult aged 18 and older (not currently attending full-time studies), in your household. This allows us to verify your eligibility and begin moving forward with the consultation process.
Please note that our team reserves the right to evaluate special situations and requests on a case-by-case basis. The figures and financial data in our 'Reduced Pricing Stream Eligibility' chart are drawn directly from the High Needs Household Income Criteria as provided by the Provincial Government under the Housing Services Act, 2011, S.O. 2011, c. 6, Sched. 1.

How Does the Handyman Program Support Habitat?

The Habitat Handyman program aims to not only provide trusted contractor's services to community members but also to enable us to build more homes. By charging modest hourly rates of service, we are able to cover our own administrative costs (travel, insurance, etc.) and any revenue generated above and beyond these costs is cycled back into our build fund, enabling more families to have the opportunity of safe, decent and affordable home ownership.

What they say about us...

Joanne, M

“Everyone was really pleasant, they were here when they said they would be, did their work in a very expeditious manner and were an absolute pleasure to deal with. It was a great service and I wouldn’t hesitate to call them again.”

Danielle, M

“We save up little projects until we have a full day's work, and the Handyman staff and volunteers come onsite and take care of everything. They are always professional and friendly and each little thing gets done well and on time. We'd be lost without them!”

Tianna, G

Helping Our Community Is What We Do

Habitat Handyman has served hundreds of customers across the GTA since the pilot launch of our program, just over one year ago. We're privileged to share successes with homeowners who now live in appropriate and adequate living environments.

We've helped homeowners save more than $1,000 a year (in energy costs) by upgrading some of their home appliances and utilities. We have removed our neighbour's kitchens for FREE and provided a tax receipt for the kitchen products to relieve income-tax burdens. We've upgraded bathrooms, installed fences, painted walls, assembled furniture and installed appliances, all in the spirit of helping our community stay is adequate, appropriate, and affordable housing.

Together, in partnership with the Ontario Trillium Foundation, we have pledged more than $300,000 in discounted services to help low-income families stay in their homes.

We have an abundance of successes and stories to look back on, and we hope that you'll become part of that success by choosing us for your next home improvement job!

Every home that Habitat HM builds provides a family with innumerable benefits that allow them to build themselves a better future.

Habitat Handyman- addressing the need for home renovations

Over 7000 Residents Need Our Help

The average cost of general carpentry services can run upwards of $100 per hour plus mark up on materials. What’s more, studies show that 94% of people embarking on home renovation projects are concerned their contractor will not offer a fair price. This barrier to accessing services can introduce risk, particularly for vulnerable members of the community who require additional supports to live safely and independently.
