Data Sovereignty Services

Your data, under your care and control. 

Reclaiming the control, protection, and management of your Indigenous Nation’s data can support your assertion of Treaty and Aboriginal Rights, and can be central in your journey towards self-determination. Having GIS and values data, lands management data, oral history recordings, agreements, and other important information at your finger tips can be a game changer in lands and band management, as well as in negotiations with proponents and governments.

Whether you need assistance in planning how your data will be managed, organizing and storing your data, or making sure it is protected and safe, our team at SVS is here to help. Put your data to work, for the benefit of your people.


    • Data governance and management plans
    • Data audit, clean-up, and digitization
