FOR THE COMMUNITY, BY THE COMMUNITY, WITH THE COMMUNITY
 

WHO

  • Northern Community Solutions Social Enterprises Inc., (NCS) was established to connect Northern Communities with technologies that will meet the challenges faced in the North such as lack of viable employment, poor housing conditions, high energy costs, high food costs and a lack of basic infrastructure that most of us in Canada take for granted. These are focus areas in which NCS is actively seeking partners and technology providers from around the world to provide the best possible solution for Northern Communities, at the lowest possible cost. 
  • NCS is a socially conscious, performance, results and technology driven company which, through its founders and partners, has over 30 years of extensive experience and achievements in developing and executing large numbers of successful business concepts, market-entry strategies and projects for our clients and partners.
  • We work with northern and remote Indigenous communities, municipalities and organizations seeking help and support in developing, implementing and operating sustainable initiatives that improve peoples’ health and lives, create jobs, and delivers results for our clients.
  • We look for communities, organizations and businesses that have a focus on growth and increasing sustainability of operations. This can mean anything from reducing the heating cost in buildings by improving insulation to creating local growing areas that provide fresh fruits and vegetables for local consumption. Our objectives revolve around reducing costs, increasing economic growth and creating long-term and sustainable jobs in the communities we work with. 

To deliver many of these solutions, NCS has a strong network comprised of government bodies at all levels (Federal, Provincial, Municipal, Foreign) and technology providers that have experience in delivering solutions based on remote, rural and Northern needs.

Benefits of Working with US

Northern Community Solutions SE was founded on the idea that there are challenges in the North that could be solved through careful planning, the application of specific technology or simply the assistance of a skilled and experienced team. We believe that through embracing sustainability in all of our projects we bring benefits that every organization wants – the desire to expand, improve and above all sustain their operations or the project at hand. We work with clients to provide solutions that meet the direct needs of the community and those that are sustainable – economically, environmentally and socially.

Our extensive experience helps our client communities to develop, implement and operate sustainable business and socio-economic concepts that will increase community members overall lives by creating jobs, business opportunities, economic growth, health and wellness. We work with our clients to achieve and exceed their expectations, goals and objectives. You will be working with a team of seasoned professionals and experts with international experience who are fully committed to delivering RESULTS.

We take your goals seriously and work together as a team to achieve them. We do not settle for the status quo. Our service portfolio is focused on Growth Mindset, Resourcefulness, Integrity, Teamwork, and these values drive us every day. Our aim is to create a stress-free experience where you will feel completely supported. We are proud to say that we have wealth of knowledge in our focus areas. If there is something we don't know, we can rely on our large network of experts around the world that we partner with.

We also put our money where we live and are actively involved in improving the social dynamics of several communities through the donation of our time to support social and attainable housing initiatives as well through our support for the development and growth of local food production (community gardens, indoor growing), particularly in remote and fly-in communities. As our company has grown we have been able to expand our reach and believe that we are making a significant difference. We believe that our combined experience while conducting the project will result in a solution that is reasonable, practical and above all can be implemented immediately.

WHAT

Where we can Help

NCS works primarily with Northern and remote communities, but also has technology-specific solutions for various scenarios. While we work with communities throughout Northern Canada, our main focus area to date has been with communities in Northern Ontario.

For our clients, we look for communities, organizations and businesses that have a focus on growth and increasing sustainability of operations. This can mean anything from reducing the heating cost in buildings by improving insulation to creating local growing areas that provide fresh fruits and vegetables for local consumption. Our objectives revolve around reducing costs, increasing economic growth and creating long-term and sustainable jobs in the communities we work with.
