Western Cree Tribal Council launches communication and outreach app for its members

Western Cree Tribal Council (WCTC) yesterday announced the launch of a cross-platform mobile application through which it aims to reach its member communities, as groups or individuals, to inform them of news, events, programs, services, career opportunities, forms and important documentation for applications.

A non-profit organization that is an association of self-governing First Nations members, WCTC provides advice and support services to Three Northwestern Alberta First Nations (Sturgeon Lake Cree Nation, Duncan First Nation and Horse Lake First Nation).

the mobile application downloadable for free on Apple (iOS) Where android devices.

“When we saw how our member nations were using their own apps to communicate directly with their members, we were immediately struck by how our organization could benefit from this type of technology. This makes it quick and easy to reach individuals or groups, and the chances of messages being missed or ignored are much lower,” said WCTC Chief Executive Alfred Goodswimmer.

The organization says it was inspired to create its own mobile app after seeing the success of its three member nations using the Communikit Application Platform, a communication application platform designed specifically for First Nations and their organizations. Communikit was developed in 2018 by Aivia design and technology with the aim of reducing the gaps in well-being between First Nations and the rest of Canada by providing administrations with more advanced communication tools.
