For the past twenty years, Dadavan has been partnering with Indigenous communities across Canada to develop and implement purpose-built data management systems.

Our ever-evolving suite of products, used across all provinces, manages data in education, health care, cultural preservation, member management—and we keep growing! 

Our years of extensive experience collaborating with Indigenous communities helps us understand the challenges and successes communities are experiencing. We are proud to be known as the company to turn to when a new database is needed. And, as we continue to move in to the future and continue to listen to our communities’ stories and ideas, we can’t wait to see what we will build together next.

We love what we do.

Our values are rooted in the respect of culture, knowledge, tradition, and diversity. We have been developing and customizing culturally relevant 
Indigenous databases for over twenty years.

CULTURAL KNOWLEDGE & SENSITIVITY

Our unique permission systems are fully customizable to support the privacy and access requirements of each of our client partners. We understand the importance of data ownership and privacy.

DATA & CONTENT OWNERSHIP

While others cringe at the word customization, we will work step-by-step to create software to meet your long-term goals.

Even the most technically-shy clients can easily use our software—but they are never alone. We are proud of the quality of our training and support, and  will be there every step of the way.

Our development process is collaborative. We engage our clients as partners to solve real challenges and create solutions that positively impact their community.

PARTNERSHIPS

Beyond simply creating reliable products, we build and maintain 
trust through honesty, transparency, and accountability.

At our heart, we have always been guided by our mandate to improve the lives of the people who use our products. The values that guide Dadavan have evolved from the Indigenous communities we have had the privilege of working with.

What sets Dadavan apart?

For the past twenty years, our team of thinkers and doers have been crafting purpose-built software to meet the unique needs of Indigenous communities and organizations across Canada.
