When the unavoidable challenges of running a small business pop up again, Buffalo Lake Metis Settlement will serve as Applecross Innovations’ happy place.
On November 15, more than a dozen Buffalo Lake Metis Settlement members completed our computer-skills course as led by Applecross president Graham Andrews, an outspokenly proud Metis himself. The course included principles of computing, general online safety, application use, and pointers to ease anxieties related to computers.
“I don’t believe I’ve ever led a training session with more laughter, one that ended with more hugs and handshakes, or one where more participants already wanted to sign up for an advanced class.”

Alberta is home to eight communities unlike any other in the world: the Metis Settlements.
These are the only eight communities where ownership of the land is protected by legislation as owned by Metis, one of Canada’s three constitutionally recognized distinct groups of Indigenous peoples.
Applecross Innovations is now a licensed telecommunications company!
This brings us one giant hurdle closer to our goal of providing fair-priced, high-quality Internet and other telecommunication services specifically to Indigenous communities.
Following a lengthy process, our license arrived last week from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC). We can now provide a host of international telecommunications services.
Please stay tuned for upcoming announcements, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to discuss partnership opportunities!
