October 2018 and June 2019

On October 17, 2018, Magil Ontario’s female staff helped build a house during Habitat4Humanity’s Women Build Week. Women Build Week was organized by the London and District Construction Association’s Women in Construction. All the companies in and around London raised enough funds to sponsor 26 female Fanshawe College students to participate. This gave the students the opportunity to help this great cause, but also spend a day with mentors in the industry.

The LDCA’s Women in Construction team is the most successful fundraising team in Habitat 4 Humanity Heartland Ontario’s history, raising $17,900. Magil Construction sponsored Jen Leppard, Marketing and Communications Manager, and Carol Chi, Project Manager, and well as and two students.

In Québec, we enjoyed the same experience on June 7, 2019. Magil’s Josée Plourde, VP of Strategy and Outreach and Alexandra Murdock, Vice President of Operations in Québec, had an outstanding day working hand in hand to help build a home along with other women inspired by the mission of the Habitat4Humanity Québec program, united by a remarkable social movement. Through these two activities, Habitat4Humanity helps families by building their future and improving their sense of stability and independence, while celebrating the importance of women in the life of the community and their significant contribution to a profession traditionally male.
