Our founding members are from the Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg. We chose to use the bear in our logo. In Algonquin culture, bears are a symbol of bravery and courage, and we carry this with us in all that we do.
While working in the Friendship Centre movement (a group of autonomous non-profits that provide services to urban Indigenous people), we noticed that many Indigenous non-profits were using outdated systems.
We started making simple websites. Soon, there was so much interest that Ursa Creative was formalized. It quickly became a full-time job, and we expanded our team to create new systems, websites, and offer consulting. We continue to provide technology services to Indigenous non-profits, as well as any other organizations that strive to improve their technological capacity.
