Habitat for Humanity Vancouver Island North Receives Vehicle Grant from Nissan Canada Foundation
A new Nissan TITAN full-size pickup truck will be put to work by the volunteers of Habitat for Humanity Vancouver Island North. The organization purchased the well-equipped, capable truck with a donated $60,000 vehicle grant from the Nissan Canada Foundation.

“We were ecstatic when we received the news that Habitat for Humanity Vancouver Island North had been selected to receive the vehicle grant as we’ve been applying for the program since 2016,” said Tom Beshr, Habitat VIN’s director of development. “Countless volunteers, staff, and resources are required to build affordable homes for families on Northern Vancouver Island, and the dependability and capability of this new TITAN will certainly help create efficiencies with our home build projects.”
Habitat VIN focuses on families in need of housing from Bowser to Port Hardy, B.C., and the new Nissan TITAN couldn’t come at a better time. With a mileage of 850,000 kms and 22 years in service, the previous truck had well-earned its retirement.
“The Nissan Canada Foundation’s vehicle donation program provides an opportunity for us to further support our Habitat partners across Canada in a meaningful way and provides them with a reliable vehicle to build safe, affordable homes in our dealer communities,” said Steve Milette, president of Nissan Canada Inc. “We’re excited that for the first time ever, the vehicle grant has been awarded to a B.C. recipient and will help Habitat Vancouver Island North serve more families in their community”.
Named the Best Large Light Duty Pickup of 2019 by J.D. Power, the 2019 TITAN delivers a standard 390 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque.
