About Us

Rapidly Deploying Shelter Systems Anywhere in the World

Weatherhaven

Weatherhaven is a world leader as a designer, manufacturer and installer of portable turnkey shelters, camps and field hospitals, as well as being an in-service support provider.

Founded in 1981 in British Columbia, Canada by the owners of a world-renowned expedition company and an exclusive Vancouver-based construction company, Weatherhaven has grown into a global company focused on multinational projects.

From our origins in serving the expedition and mining exploration markets, Weatherhaven's products and services are best showcased in installations that face challenging transportation logistics in remote and extreme environments, or require a high degree of mobility, performance and utility with a focus on sustainable environmental development.

From the commercial market, Weatherhaven transitioned into supporting government and non-government agencies, as well as domestic and international militaries with peacekeeping missions around the world with its camp and medical capabilities. For the last several years, Weatherhaven has been listed as one of the top defence companies in Canada for our work and product innovation in the military sector.

Since entering the commercial, military, and medical fields, we have focused on developing custom and leading-edge shelter solutions with turnkey options, energy efficiency, re-deployability, and integrated camps and shelter systems. Weatherhaven is proud to continue evolving our product line along with changing societal demands, and staying true to our roots as a dynamic, creative, and agile company.
