Canstruction is an annual competition where teams of architects, engineers, designers and students collaborate to create large installations made exclusively out of canned goods. Each year has a theme and there are awards presented to the top designs.

Edgemont Moving & Storage donates the use of our largest truck and labour to pick up pallets of canned goods and deliver them to multiple building venues. Each team has between 9am on April 25th and 5pm on April 26th to complete their design.

DSCN5140The creations go on display to the general public between April 27th and May 8th at The Four Season Hotel, The Pendulum At Gallery and The Rotunda at Pacific Center.

At the end of the competition, Edgemont Moving & Storage transports 100% of the food used in the structures to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank for distribution to community emergency feeding programs.

Since 2002, Canstruction Vancouver has raised over 1,318,000 cans of food and is the largest contributor to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank.
