Inbound freight to our Distribution Center in Surrey, BC is consistent and stable with minimal disruptions.
Challenges remain for outbound freight from our Distribution Center to the BC Interior, BC North, BC South East, Alberta, and Saskatchewan branches. All branches are experiencing delays up to 4 - 7 business days due to snow and road conditions.
Vancouver and Vancouver Island freight and logistics are back to normal with overnight deliveries out of the Distribution Center.

Truth and Reconciliation Day
Posted on , Thursday 30th of September 2021
Today, September 30, 2021, marks the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation in Canada. This day provides us with a chance to recognize and commemorate the intergenerational harm that residential schools caused
to Indigenous families and communities, and also to honour those who have been affected by these injustices.
We proudly recognize the Indigenous communities' contribution to our culture, our country, and our business. At E.B. Horsman & Son we are committed to learning and reflecting on our individual, our company, and our countries role in the past and the future. Through education, awareness, and relationships we must first understand the Truth so that Reconciliation can happen. We continue our support of Indigenous communities through the Urban Spirit Foundation which supports various programs to further the success and self-reliance of Urban Indigenous peoples.
To mark this event, CBC is sharing First Nations, Métis, and Inuit perspectives and experiences from across the country. For the entire day these stories will be broadcast across CBC TV, CBC News Network, CBC.ca, CBC Kids, CBC Radio One, and CBC Music including a commercial-free primetime broadcast special, National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
We can only understand by learning and seeking to discover better ways through care and compassion on this special day.
