Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter was hospitalized in Canada for dehydration "as a precaution", his organization said Thursday.

The former president and his wife Rosalynn were in Edmonton, where Habitat is building 75 homes, from Monday to Wednesday before heading to Winnipeg, where the couple joined hundreds of volunteers working on 25 homes in the St James community, said Rowena Sara, a spokeswoman for the organisation.

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

Carter is scheduled to speak at the build's closing ceremonies in Winnipeg Friday night, where he will announce the location of next year's work project.

"[He] told us he's OK and being taken off site for observation", the spokesman said.

"He encourages everyone to stay hydrated and keep building", Reckford adds.

Carter and the former first lady are in Winnipeg, working on their 34th annual Habitat for Humanity "Carter Work Project".

The organization's chief executive, Jonathan Reckford, posted a statement on Carter's health status to Habitat for Humanity's Facebook page.

Carter and his wife, Rosalynn Carter, shared on Friday "their appreciation for the many well-wishes he received worldwide", the Carter Center said.

Carter was building a set of stairs for a home and was outside for about 90 minutes before leaving the site.

Thursday afternoon, a spokesperson for George W. Bush released a statement: "God Bless him, and we hope he is fine". One of those came Thursday evening from another ex-president, Bill Clinton.
