About US

Building the future

We are on a mission to empower Canadian communities with the best of the breed data tools they need to succeed in attracting investment, new businesses and talent.

Our inspiration stems from the first project we did for the public service, a B.C. Housing Market data visualization project. We collaborated with BC Stats and Innovate BC on this project and realized that we want to use our skills and expertise for the benefit of community, and the idea of Cityviz was born.

OUR GOAL

We have one ultimate goal: to add value to our partners using Cityviz. We do this by providing the most flexible product on the market, which contains the most comprehensive data available, supported by an outstanding service.

The Most Flexible Product

Cityviz offers unparalleled flexibility by allowing client organizations to select the modules they need, customize features and add their own data.

Outstanding Service

Our top priority is to deliver the outstanding service and be there for you whenever you need help to get the best value possible from our products. 

The Most Comprehensive Data

We constantly add new data to Cityviz from relevant data sources and keep it up to date so users always use the most recent data.
