Edson is a central Albertan town with a fascinating history. It was originally founded as Heatherwood, but the town name changed in 1911 to honour Edson Joseph Chamberlin. Chamberlin was vice-president of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway. The town became the local rail centre and rose to prominence.
Today, the Yellowhead Highway runs by Edson and carries some of the heaviest traffic flow in Canada; so much so, that the route has been dubbed the “second Trans-Canada Highway.” Edson lies in the McLeod River Valley, on the foothills of the Canadian Rockies. Due to the high elevation, the town is subject to a subarctic climate.
Edson offers all the best in outdoor entertainment; residents particularly enjoy camping, boating, fishing, canoeing, trail riding and big game hunting. Edson has the beauty of the Rockies and the convenience of the Yellowhead highway. This town is well situated for good commerce and great tourism!

Our Green Initiatives
Secure Container is committed to keeping the shipping container industry green. Right now 56% of the world’s old shipping containers are unused. They’ll need to be transported to a processing plant and smelted, which takes a great toll on the environment. We avoid this environmental cost by ensuring our containers are well maintained. This allows us to reuse containers up till their maximum lifespan, drastically reducing waste. It’s up to all of us to keep Canada green!
