Multi Shelters offers a variety of shipping options to save our customers money on their buildings.
First and foremost, we offer shipping with our truck wherever possible. We have been shipping out to eastern Canada with our truck for the last couple years. We can save you even more money with our Multi Shelter Solutions truck!
We also have a shipping crate that makes longer distance shipping with Manitoulin Transport more cost effective. Shipping longer distances with our new shipping crate certainly has added possibilities while maintaining quality, convenience and economy.An added dimension is the rail service that Manitoulin Transport offers to Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver. By going via rail to Winnipeg and then road to Saskatoon, a recent customer is saving $400 on his freight bill.
MSS has now shipped structures to all 10 Canadian provinces, the Yukon and Nevada, Colorado, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Missouri, Kansas, Vermont and Illinois
Did you know that in many cases the difference in the exchange rate between Canada and the U.S. pretty well covers the freight? In most cases for the north eastern U.S. the currency exchange is about equal to the freight. We have started to ship a few buildings to the U.S. and look forward to helping more people find their shelter solution. Still made and manufactured in Palmerston, ON.

Every year at Multi Shelter Solutions we try to collaborate with non profit organizations and other volunteer opportunities to provide a shelter at low or no cost.
We have done shelters for Haiti after the earthquake, a shelter for an eye clinic in the Dominican Republic, arches for Magical Lights of Milton that donates back to the Milton Hospital at Christmas, greenhouse to Aroland First Nations in Northern Ontario to provide food for their community and learning opportunities for the students, and work with Food Bank projects out on the east coast to help provide fresh, healthy vegetables to those most in need, and the list continues to grow. See photos on our “giving back” page.
This is something we believe whole heartedly in and would very much like to work with more causes to help in whatever way we can. We also want to express gratitude for the various opportunities we’ve had to help out non-profit and not-for-profit groups.
If you know of a project that could use our help, or are involved with something you’d like to see us put some help behind, please don’t hesitate to contact us and let us know about it. This is an ongoing initiative of Multi Shelter Solutions, and as a company, and all our staff, would love to see this continue. Please join us in taking some time to give back, and Pay It Forward. A little smile goes a long way.
Here’s an article written about our east coast project

This is always worth a repost to acknowledge Hunger Week (September 18 – 22 2017) and raise awareness. Every day, thousands go hungry and need to access food banks. They need fresh, healthy food as well. Multi Shelters takes these causes seriously, and we do our best to help out where we can. If you work with a project that could use some of our support, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we can see what we can do!

Multi Shelter Solutions helps local food bank extend the season!
(Source: ACORN blog)
ACORN conferences are a fun and educational way to connect with other organic producers and consumers from across Atlantic Canada and beyond. Stronger connections lead to stronger communities and a greater organic resilience in the region.
Norm Eygenraam proved this at their Greenhouse Conference last February. Norm, the President of Multi ShelterSolutions was so impressed by theWest End Food Bank’s Garden of Hope Project he offered to donate a greenhouse to the project. The Garden had just completed construction on a new greenhouse and so thoughtfully asked if they could pass on the generous gift to another food project in the area. Foods of the Fundy Valley, a non-profit organization dedicated to the production and consumption of local goods in Albert County, gratefully accepted the greenhouse for their garden club at theRiverside Consolidated School in Riverside-Albert. Now that their growing season has been extended, they plan to share their bounty by cooking hot lunches for the kids, and donating any excess to the Shepody Food Bank.
We at ACORN would like to say an official and public THANK YOU! to Norm and his generous contribution to food production in New Brunswick. Be sure to chat with Norm and the rest of our supportive Trade Show partners at the Delta Beauséjour – November 20th – 22nd.www.acornconference.org.
