One Montreal family is getting a much better Christmas gift than most: a new home thanks to Habitat for Humanity.
About 200 volunteers came together to build the home on Bourassa St. after the city of Montreal sold the property to the charity organization.
This duplex on Bourassa St. was given to a family by Habitat for Humanity
Jean-Maurice Forget, president of the Quebec branch of Habitat for Humanity, said the goal was to give the lower half of the duplex to an indigenous family because it is located near the offices of Native Montreal, a community group for indigenous and non-indigenous people.
