Happy Birthday Canada! Our gift to you…150 new homes!

Last holiday season, Stogryn embraced “shared giving” by providing sponsorship support to Habitat for Humanity Canada, in lieu of product gifts to our spa and salon partners. Thanks to the support of our valued partners, this shared gift enabled us to collectively support Habitat for Humanity Canada’s important work because we believe that everyone in Canada has the right to a safe, affordable and decent place to live in.

In celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday, Stogryn Premier Wellness Resources and its partners will be part of Habitat for Humanity Canada’s biggest build project ever. Habitat for Humanity’s 34th Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project will take place in every province and territory across Canada with a goal to collectively build 150 homes to mark Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation. Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn will be visiting Canada from July 9-14, 2017, focusing their efforts in Edmonton, Alberta and  Winnipeg, Manitoba.


Glenn Stogryn, Carol Stock, Tom Berube and Rhonda Hachey will be wielding hammers on behalf of Stogryn on July 12th in Edmonton. Carrie Stogryn of Carriel Salon and Spa will join the build team, representing our Alberta spa and salon partners. On July 14th, the Stogryn build team moves on to Winnipeg, consisting of Karen Ptycia, Glenn Stogryn and Toni McMillan. This group will be joined by Diane and Bob Sparrow of Riverstone Spa, representing our spa and salon partners in Manitoba.



Habitat Canada has a long history of creating affordable housing opportunities in the country. People living in Habitat homes not only help to build their own houses, they also pay affordable mortgages. Habitat’s innovative approach helps working families on a new path to better, affordable living conditions that lead to improved health and stronger childhood development, as well as a decrease in reliance on food banks.

Since 1984, President and Mrs. Carter have traveled around the world with Habitat, to build and improve homes. Their time and effort helps to raise awareness of the critical need for affordable home ownership around the world. Inspiring millions over the last three decades, President and Mrs. Carter have worked alongside nearly 100,000 volunteers in 14 countries to build, renovate and repair more than 4,000 homes.
