Working with First Nations
As a First Nation-owned company, Bison Modular Homes realizes the importance of the need for building solutions for First Nations communities.
Our company is proud that we are able to be apart of helping 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 modular homes are a progressive solution to employment opportunities for Indigenous peoples. By employing First Nation residents in projects in their local community, we can improve economic development in ways that have a firsthand affect in the livelihood of community members.
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 Modular 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.
As a celebration of First Nations and Indigenous culture, Bison Modular Homes have several animal plaques to choose from which are used like a street address, these plaques are placed on the exterior of the modular homes near the front door.
These painting are designed and created by Indigenous artist Jackie Traverse.
