Who We Are
CES has been a local source of professional expertise for many communities and organizations throughout Ontario and Manitoba since 2010, providing the services and tools that promote informed decision-making.
More than just maps
By combining our expertise with the needs and values of each client, we create deliverables that contribute to a strong foundation for future planning, development, and growth. With every project that we complete, we strive to include capacity-building components that will empower future generations and strengthen autonomy within communities.
What We Do
Community planning is the ongoing, evolving process of creating progressive strategies and solutions that will have a positive impact on your future. Every project we engage in is community-driven and establishes a strategic direction that can guide future generations for the years to come.
Gone are the days of static paper maps. Explore the data that informs your decisions with our innovative GIS & Mapping services, all designed to create a solid foundation for future planning and development. We create and deliver personalized, user-friendly tools that allow you to easily access and interact with all of your data. Everything we create is designed to meet your unique needs and exceed your expectations.
Data collected with our drones can be used to create stunning visuals and 3D models of your lands and resources that can help you unlock their potential. The tools they generate can assist your community with future planning and development, as well support the protection of your lands from flooding, erosion, and more.
Our services maintain a common goal of driving success through self-sufficiency. We combine our experience with effective tools and resources to create an approach that is client-driven and supports sustainable results. In each project we manage, we strive to include capacity building opportunities such as project liaison roles, or training, whenever possible.
The knowledge that is shared in interviews always remains the property of the community and can be used to guide important decision-making in addition to teaching future generations about their history. Our team is incredibly fortunate to play a part in documenting oral histories, and we have built lasting connections with many of the Elders, knowledge holders, and storytellers we have sat down with.
We offer personalized training courses for individuals and groups seeking capacity building and growth opportunities. The customization of each course allows participants to have a unique learning experience that is reflective of their interests.
