Why we Give Back
Our purpose is to enrich lives by creating great places to live, work and play, and we believe in doing the right thing. That's why supporting charitable organizations in our communities is so important to us
As part of our commitment to reducing our environmental impact, eQ Homes sponsors reforestation through Tree Canada, the only national non-profit organization dedicated to planting and nurturing trees in rural and urban environments.
After tornadoes hit Ottawa in 2018, we donated to Tree Canada’s ReLeaf program to help local homeowners replant trees that were damaged by the storm. We are also proud to sponsor Tree Canada's Greening Canada's School Grounds grant, providing funds for local children to plant trees on their school's property.
Through our partnership, Tree Canada will ensure that the health and beauty of our environment will endure by planting new trees for every home we build.

For eQ Homes, building homes is about more than bricks and mortar. It’s about designing and constructing safe communities and homes, which is something we share with Habitat for Humanity Greater Ottawa, an organization that builds affordable homes that provide a solid foundation for local families. Partnering with Habitat, has been an extension of the community building we do every day and we are honoured to be among their many loyal supporters.

Each year, with help from our staff homeowners and trade partners, we support Make-A-Wish's 24 Days of Wishes campaign to grant the wishes of local children with critical illnesses. Visit Make-A-Wish to learn how you can help special kids like Oliver and Darren.makeawish.ca
