What makes this project different?
- The Arctic Container Project (ACP) differs because we are not in the business of selling or renting homes. Therefore we are not looking to gain immense profits from these homes. Instead the profits roll back into the project that will in-turn help the next person inline for a home.
- One of the key components of this project is the capacity building training project. Our project utilizes the recipient as a labour force if possible, we expect them to put in 200-500 hours of volunteer hours for the opportunity to participate in the program. Now they don’t have to be in the construction of their unit but maybe they have a skillset in need that the community can benefit from, ie a seamstress she could teach some classes in the community, a carver could teach traditional carving methods to youth to keep the cultural component prospering.
