Our Story

Our founding members are from the Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg. We chose to use the bear in our logo to represent our clan and heritage. 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non-profits that provide services to urban Indigenous people), we noticed that many Indigenous non-profits were using outdated systems.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.
