First Habitat for Humanity LEED house built in Montreal

Saturday was a big day for the Aabid-Ezzerouali family. They finally got the keys to their new home their neighbours, local companies, and random volunteers built over this past year. They are the first Montreal family to move into a LEED-certified (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) home built by Habitat for Humanity Montreal. The project proves one can be environmenally friendly while on a tight budget.

The day was filled with festivities, starting with the key-giving ceremony and followed with a tour of the home, something Vigilant was very proud to partake in as a sponsor. Habitat also hosted a family day in Gadbois Park with plenty of food and drink, and lots of activities for kids.

Vigilant employees also volunteered their time to help with the construction of the home and it proved so popular a volunteering activity, we’re doing it again in a few weeks!
