Working with First Nations
As a First Nation-owned company, we take pride in collaborating with Indigenous peoples. Bison Container Homes realizes the importance of engaging with and seeking to understand the needs of Indigenous peoples, day in and day out.
Each shipping container we modify comes from an investment in new equipment, training, and infrastructure to improve the standard of living in Indigenous and northern communities. Our research has made it clear: sustainable housing which does not rot, mould, or deteriorate is of utmost importance for Indigenous peoples.
Working together is also a key aspect of our relationship. Our ready-to-assemble container homes are a progressive solution to employment opportunities for Indigenous peoples. This way we can truly collaborate and together create better and simplified container homes.

Celebrating and respecting Indigenous peoples’ cultures is something we are proud to do. We recognize we can’t respect Indigenous peoples cultures without understanding the importance of Indigenous elders. Keeping them in mind, our Elders Homes are a crucial product tailored toward better housing for elders in all northern communities. We’ve also prioritized multi-family units to accommodate families in northern communities.
In order to communicate effectively, we ensure that every Bison Container Homes employee understands, respects, and values Indigenous traditions. We are grateful for and appreciate any opportunity to build and improve infrastructure on Treaty land. Our mission is to provide Indigenous and northern communities with sustainable housing, and we are open to any idea that makes this possible.
