Former U.S. president Jimmy Carter has been released from a Canadian hospital after being treated for dehydration suffered while participating in a charity building event, his foundation said Friday.

That's where 21 homes are being built by Habitat at the site of the Winnipeg Police Service's former St. James district station.

The Carter Center announced the former president had been discharged from the hospital on Friday.

"He and Mrs. Carter extend their appreciation for the many well-wishes he received worldwide", Congileo said.

Carter joined thousands of volunteers for Habitat's Carter Work Project to build 150 homes across Canada in celebration of the country's 150th anniversary. On Wednesday, Carter said the build in Edmonton, Canada, was one of the best.

Carter was taken to hospital after collapsing with dehydration on Thursday morning where he had spent two hours working on the site.

Mr Carter was diagnosed with melanoma that had spread to his brain in 2015, but announced in March the following year that he no longer needed treatment. Carter continued to volunteer for Habitat while being treated for cancer, working alongside volunteers at a home in Memphis in November 2015.
