Just a quick reminder that you are still able to order the self sufficiency packages after May 31st (and any of our structures!) But it will be later delivery. As an example, when you order in June, it will likely be October delivery.
Please contact the office for specific pricing and delivery times. That is the most reliable way to stay up to date and accurate during these rapidly changing times
We are incredibly grateful to everyone for planning ahead, and for your patience. We love working with you on your projects and are grateful we have been able to continue that throughout the last three decades. Cheers to growing & more in 2021!

In the following weeks, we will be sharing some articles to help you learn more about growing and considerations for your greenhouse purchase. You can subscribe to have them delivered to your inbox, or you can also click the links below to view them right away.
Ever since the onset of COVID-19 virus with all of its challenges, we at Multi Shelter Solutions have been fortunate to have a huge increase in interest in our products. We are grateful that people see such value in our greenhouses as they search for added food security amidst uncertainty.
This increase in interest during this time of uncertainty and extra protocols for safety have not happened without its own challenges. We are grateful for the patience which customers have shown and also their willingness to plan ahead.
Generally speaking we are getting people the information and numbers which they need within a week. Some of the more complex quotes or ones with a few extra situations do take a few extra days.
In the office, Maggie has been quickly acknowledging requests and identifying any missing information so that when Kelly or Norm does the quote, they have what is required.
We appreciate you giving us as much information as possible to reduce any back and forth and help your quote process go quicker. As a reminder we do not give quotes or delivery updates on our social media.
Please be aware that with the uncertainty and volatility of steel and aluminum costs, we are only guaranteeing our prices for 30 days. We understand people appreciate having those numbers available for their planning purposes on our website but the best way to ensure accuracy right now is to phone or email for a quote. As a heads up, we will be updating pricing on our website in the near future, to respond to the situation we are facing from our suppliers.
With our current workload, deliveries are being quoted at 10 weeks. Some of the larger or more complex buildings are being quoted as longer. We work at grouping things together in certain areas and some customers are surprised with quicker deliveries. This is something that should not be counted on.
Our office staff continues to reach out to customers just before delivery to ensure they are aware of delivery protocols. Acknowledgement of these protocols is mandatory for the safety of the driver but also in more and more situations, part of the necessary paperwork we must file in advance as we travel out of province.
We appreciate everyone helping to get these things organized quickly and efficiently. We are grateful that we are classified as essential service and are meticulous with ensuring paperwork is complete so that we can maintain that status.
We will continue to use our website and social media as best as we can, as a tool for keeping our customers informed and up to date on what is going on in our rapidly changing world.
We look forward to working with you on your greenhouse and shelter projects and wish you health and safety in the coming month and beyond.
As we recognize and celebrate Organic Week 2020, we want to share a popular article from our website. We thank the organic farmers that go the extra mile for land stewardship and are proud to partner with so many of them. We will be sharing and highlighting some key organic related articles all week. We hope you find them helpful!
There are many benefits to having a greenhouse structure for organic growing and housing. They are often used a season extender for protecting crops from the elements, blight, and fungus. Since Organic growers and farmers do not use pesticides, this type of protection is often required for some of the more sensitive crops.
The structures are easy to move to allow the expansion of the growing area.These structures can easily help to give you the opportunity to grow more crops in a limited area. What many of our customers also do, particularly with Hanley Caterpillar structures, is start growing the early crops under the protection of the structure, and as the crop is stable enough, they move the structure to be able to start the next planting.
Our structures are also used for organic livestock raising to ensure the animals have a healthy, safe and protected environment out of the elements. They are versatile structures, and only require the changing of clear to white plastic for the various uses. The environment allows the animals to have sunlight, but still get the shade they require.
The combination of the double layer of plastic, roll up sides, and inflator fan, on both the greenhouse and livestock shelters, helps to reduce condensation and keep the structure ventilated. We are excited to be working on a solar powered fan option for those off grid customers or if the structure is out in the field away from electricity as we know many of our organic growers and farmers are in these situations.
On Common Ground: Farming and food in a shifting climate This year’s theme On Common Ground: Farming and food in a shifting climate aims to widen the scope of the conference by highlighting issues that we all face in the community -including farmer mental health, climate change, and succession planning. As always, we are also planning some fantastic workshops for livestock producers, market gardeners, and crop producers. Our theme recognizes that we are at a particular moment where the urgency of the climate crisis is in the public discourse. Together, we have the potential to solve this crisis by restoring soil health and through soil carbon sequestration. We have an estimated 60 years left of soil based food. If we do not recognize our common ground and scale up efforts massively and immediately, the environmental, economic, and social threats to food and farming will continue to grow each year.
