Homes for Heroes
We are leveraging our expertise in modular housing to build ATCO Village, a community of 15 tiny homes in Calgary for veterans of the Canadian Armed Forces. Building upon our long and proud history of supporting the Canadian military, we’ve partnered with the Homes For Heroes Foundation, the McCann Family Foundation and the Canadian Legacy Project to provide housing and a robust support system for veterans who are experiencing homelessness. The community formed by these homes features a resource centre, community gardens and memorials to Canadian soldiers who lost their lives in Afghanistan.
ATCO is providing our expertise in the design, build, manufacture, delivery and placement of units on ATCO-supplied pile foundations. These tiny homes showcase ATCO’s urban design capabilities and will provide a home our military heroes will be proud to call their own – a small gesture when measured against their herculean sacrifice. In total, we have committed a $1.5 million gift-in-kind donation to support the Homes For Heroes Foundation.
ATCO Village opened in Calgary in November 2019, with a second community in Edmonton slated to be complete in 2020. For more information on Homes For Heroes, visit their website.
