Canstruction has moved this year and will now be in 4 locations on Georgia Street: Four Seasons Hotel at Howe, HSBC Pendulum Gallery at Hornby, FortisBC Building at 1075 West Georgia, and the Flour Building at 1111 West Georgia.

The can-made structures will be on display daily from 9:30am to 5:00pm until April 4, 2012. When it’s all done, all of the food used to create the Canstruction sculptures will also be donated. Since 2002, Canstruction Vancouver has raised 1,056,043 cans of food for our local community.
