I joined Bison Transport almost two years ago as the Saskatchewan Terminals Manager. It was my first foray into the transportation industry after spending a 32-year career as a police officer with the RCMP. There has been a steep learning curve since I came aboard with Bison, and I was, and continue to be, impressed with Bison’s Mission and Core Values. Not only are these values demonstrated daily with its employee and customer relationships, but also in the spirit of community-giving so often put forth by dedicated Bison staff.

Each year CancerCare Manitoba Foundation and the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba join forces with FMG Dragon Boat for the Manitoba Dragon Boat Festival.
With CancerCare Manitoba's Challenge for Life event set to take place this weekend, the Blazing Bisons are in the final stages of a fundraising campaign that has spanned several months and put them at the top of the corporate standings!
Having raised over $100,000 already, the Blazing Bisons are the top corporate team participating in the Challenge for Life and that number includes only the individual fundraising efforts. Bison's Challenge for Life team members have put in countless hours raising money through a variety of initiatives, from baking cupcakes to making quilts.
To begin April, we launched our Bison Cares campaign for the spring, encouraging Drivers and office staff to get involved in local charitable initiatives by making a donation or volunteering their time.
One of the biggest aspects of the Bison Cares campaign is our organization's annual involvement in the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation's Challenge for Life, a one-day fundraising event in which participants can walk for 20 kilometres (12.4 miles) or, as of this year, take part in a 200-minute workout. Last year, our team of 57 walkers raised over $100,000 in this event alone! Click here to read the case study about how we were able to run a successful corporate fundraising campaign!
It’s no secret that child literacy rates correlate strongly with future success, and with a recent study demonstrating that the number of books in a child’s home is linked directly to academic achievement, the need for promotion of reading, and access to the necessary resources, at a young age has never been greater.
In an effort to promote the importance of literacy in our community, several Bison Transport team members joined Corus Entertainment and First Book Canada this morning to donate books to kids at Winnipeg’s Brooklands School and had the opportunity to sit down and read with them afterward.

Grade one and two students from Brooklands were treated to an exciting presentation by Maureen Fergus, author of The Day My Mom Came to Kindergarten, before signed copies of the book were given to each student to take home and keep. After the presentation, volunteers from Bison and Corus Entertainment read with the students and gave each of them additional books to take home.
