Kenora and TBay jails


Thunder Bay and Kenora Rapid Delivery Projects

Bird Construction has been awarded a contract to build expansions at the Kenora Jail and the Thunder Bay Correctional Centres adding 50 medium or minimum-security beds of additional capacity to each existing facility. These new additions will address capacity pressures and provide additional space for effective programming and improved services.

The expansions at Kenora Jail and Thunder Bay Correctional Centre will leverage both integrated conventional site construction and innovative modular construction solutions through Bird’s valued partnership with Stack Modular. Our teams in Manitoba and Ontario will bring together experience and local expertise, reaffirming our commitment to building meaningful partnerships with regional communities including engagement with local Indigenous communities.

Indigenous Engagement Plan

Bird has developed a comprehensive Indigenous Engagement Plan to engage with local Indigenous communities. Providing employment opportunities for local Indigenous talent is a pillar of this Plan and building respectful relationships and promoting open communication and cultural awareness is fundamental to Bird’s business and the mutual success of our projects, and these communities.

Bird’s Indigenous Engagement Policy below has been translated into Ojibway, Cree and Oji-Cree and will be posted at all worksites to show respect for local languages and culture.
