The Canoe Journey

Our agreements with you

All generations

We draw the insights, cultural perspectives, and desires of your elders, youth, and middle age members to inform our approach.

All families represented

Each family is unique; their ways and teachings are given equal opportunity within your app, ensuring everyone’s voice is heard.

Language & culture

Resources and tools are rooted in your community’s ancestral teachings and traditional knowledge.

Community engagement

We walk alongside your community, learning and honouring your traditions, gathering, and building ongoing relationships with your members.

Funding and Grants

Funding And Grants

There may be funding available to support the creation of your app.

We’ll work with you to source and write grants to cover the costs of your custom plan, content creation, and app development.

Pricing varies per community app as each will have their own unique needs related to app customizations, content, and other services required to meet the needs of their community members.

Should funding not be received, the initial creation of your app starts from a minimum investment of $15,000 per month for up to one year, reducing the following year.

If you’re interested in a custom quote let’s chat so we can learn more details.

Content Ownership

*The First Nations principles of ownership, control, access, and possession - more commonly known as OCAP - assert that Indigenous peoples have control over data collection processes, and they own and control how much information can be used.*

Culturally Image

Our company believes in the importance of reconciliation and is a proud member of Culturally Committed, a community and program designed to foster relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities, promote cultural understanding, and support Indigenous-led initiatives. We acknowledge that the journey of reconciliation is ongoing, and commit to learning, listening, and taking action towards a more just and equitable future for all.
