“Well aren’t those nifty!”

My Father loved to inject the word ‘nifty’ wherever and whenever he could, and more so because we believed it was ‘cheesy’ and generated a good laugh. 

In 1992 he purchased and foresaw an esteemed future with Canadian Portable Structures, not just for our family, but for the employees who would also work there. With his earlier professional experience as an entrepreneur, he always saw value in bringing forth a business which was sustainable yet also unique, as he knew how important it was to stand out from the rest.

CPS offers fully customizable structures for all different client bases, and even from the outset, he had a strong sense of pride in knowing CPS would sustain and have room to grow into what it has evolved into today.

From simple smoke shelters to now fully integrated in plant offices, or in your own backyard, the possibilities are endless!

CPS is successful because of the people who stand behind the brand. When my Father walked out the doors of CPS in 2011 due to what we all hoped for was a routine MRI, he never shared a worry about the business because of the people working here; ‘the work family’ would steer the ship ahead, and could weather any storm. My Father never stepped foot back through those doors, and today, I could not be more honoured to carry on his legacy amid our walls, and the walls created for all our customers.

To me, CPS is not just a business.

It reflects the past through many years of success and loyalty shown by our dedicated team of employees and our customers; bringing my Father’s vision of success to life; the present in our ever evolving product line and innovation through our projects; and future in all the ‘nifty things we can create for you’.

Turned out nifty wasn’t so cheesy after all,
We look forward to working with you!

Canadian Portable Structures is Canada’s first name in temporary or permanent portable buildings.

For many years we have been the leader in designing, engineering and installing portable structures for virtually every purpose. CPS buildings can be temporary or permanent, portable or modular and range in size from a small kiosk to a large office complex. All CPS buildings are guaranteed against defects in workmanship and materials for one full year.

Our goal is to help you protect your employees’ positive attitudes by creating ideal working environments that will improve morale and communication. When space is organized, the result is increased productivity without annoyances, interruptions and disturbing noises.

In today’s corporate climate we face changing times and demands. As a successful company, CPS welcomes these changes, working in harmony, both with staff and our clients. CPS is committed to both service and unsurpassed product excellence. In the 1970’s the portable building business as we know it today, originated with the formation of Canadian Portable Structures. CPS has always been and continues to be an innovator in the current marketplace.
